In the months after we were first diagnosed with celiac disease, I made gluten-free breakfast foods for our family nearly every morning. It worked out well, but I must admit that the last few years we have turned to mostly gluten-free cereal and an occasional breakfast of eggs or pancakes or waffles. I have a wonderful friend that I exercise with several times each week. She inspired me to try making a peach cobbler for breakfast. I must admit that because of the baking time of 35 or 40 minutes, I kept putting off the idea due to our busy mornings. I finally decided to bake it as a dessert to go with our dinner.
My friend has the ability to cook and bake without measuring, and I am kind of a left-brained cook who measures everything. :) Her recipe was a bit sketchy (2 eggs, and then add some sugar, flour, etc.)--and she makes it with regular flour. So...I decided to give it a whirl and try making it gluten free. I love the down-home cooking taste and I hope you will enjoy it, too--for breakfast or dessert. The recipe might come in handy next summer when your kids have Scout Camp or Girls' Camp. This recipe is for 8-12 people, so you may want to half the recipe.
