And lest you find yourself in the doldrums of winter or fresh out of blueberries, frozen berries work just as well, and a mixture can be fun, too! A frozen mix of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries is an equally delicious twist! And don’t forget the peaches! They make a most excellent gluten free cobbler (I love to add a few berries, too, but that’s always optional).

Simply mix the sugar, water and 3 tablespoons of my gfJules Flour together over low heat until it becomes opaque and thickens a bit. It shouldn’t be watery, but definitely not super thick, either.

Berry Mixture

Gluten Free Cobbler Topping

  • 1 cup gfJules™ All Purpose Gluten-Free Flour
  • ¼ cup lightly packed brown sugar or unrefined coconut palm sugar
  • ¼ cup milk, dairy or non-dairy
  • 1 egg or favorite egg substitute
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ cup butter or non-dairy alternative (Earth Balance® Buttery Sticks)


In a medium-sized saucepan, combine gfJules™ Flour, sugar and water. Stir and cook over medium heat until thickened, approximately 12-15 minutes. The mixture should not be super thick, but not watery either (see picture above recipe card).

The mixture will over-boil and burn if not stirred often, so watch the pot and reduce the heat if the mixture is too bubbly or is browning. Add the vanilla extract.

Wash and remove all blueberry stems (there’s nothing worse than biting into a delicious blueberry cobbler, only to get a hard stem!). Stir the blueberries into the cooked sugar mixture to coat.

Pour the filling into a 9- or 10- inch, deep pie plate (it’s important not to bake the cobbler in too small or too shallow of a plate, or the hot blueberry filling will bubble all over the sides).

Preheat oven to 375° F.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together gfJules™ Flour, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Using a pastry cutter or two butter knives, cut in the butter until the flour looks like small gravel or pebbles.

In a separate bowl, stir the egg and milk to mix. Slowly add this mixture to the flour bowl and stir with a fork until completely combined.

Scoop several large spoonfuls of this batter onto the top of the filling in the pie plate. It will rise and touch the other spoonfuls as it bakes, to cover most of the top of the filling, as pictured.

Line the oven rack with foil and place the filled pie plate on top of the foil to prevent any bubbly mixture from falling onto your oven floor and burning.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or just until the cobbler is browning and somewhat firm to the touch. A toothpick inserted into the cobbler, then removed, should be clean.

Serve warm or cold. Serves 8.

  1. Jules, since we are both in the same city, would it be ossicle to come to your location and purchase some flour?

    Hope you are feeling much better.

  2. It’s been a few years since I’ve made a cobbler. I always think to make crisps instead, but your recipe has me thinking that I need a little biscuit goodness with our next dessert!
