I wasn't going to post this recipe because the cobbler topping recipe is from a previous post but this time I used Cup4Cup Gluten Free Flour instead of wheat flour. I submitted this recipe to the Cup4Cup Forum because it turned out so well and they accepted it and you can now find it on their website! I discovered this great flour substitute last year and didn't use it much until now as I am getting more serious about avoiding Gluten due to my increasing symptoms. This flour is really quite amazing as it creates baked goods that have a wonderful texture and crumb and it doesn't have any bean flour in it, which I don't like. Cup4Cup is made of Cornstarch, Tapioca Starch, Rice Flour and Potato Starch and it works wonderfully in most recipes that require all purpose wheat flour. The only thing I've noticed is that it sometimes requires a bit more liquid in the recipe as I discovered when I used it to make Banana Bread. But, since I mostly bake in the summer because I love fruit desserts, it works quite perfectly as it soaks up the extra juice from the baking fruit.
In this recipe, I combined the contents of my fruit bowl - nectarines, blueberries and cherries and loved this particular mixture of fruit. I especially enjoyed the pitted sweet cherries and I think Washington State has some of the best cherries in the world. Anyway, for those of you are trying to avoid gluten, you need to try this flour if you can get it. I bought it at Williams Sonoma and can't wait to try it for fried chicken - a summer picnic favorite!
