Nectarine/Peach Cobbler

We have a beloved nectarine tree in our backyard.  We anxiously wait all year for our nectarines!  The time has come and we are loving this sweet fruit on everything.  I just adapted this recipe for the first time and we all loved it.  Who knows, I'll probably change it in the future, but for now it will work!  I made it dairy free so everyone at our house could eat it, but I couldn't resist a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

Melt 3 T butter(I used Earth Balance Dairy free substitute) in a 9x13 pan at 375.

For batter - mix:  1 c. sugar
         1/3 c. sorghum flour
         1/3 c. millet flour
         1/3 c. potato starch
         1/2 t. xanthan gum
         dash of salt
         2 t. baking powder
     stir in 1 c. milk(or 1/4 c. lite coconut milk + 3/4 c. water)

Slice 4-5 nectarines with skin and set aside.  Peaches also work great, but I would probably peel them.

When butter is melted remove from oven and pour batter over the top. Drop in sliced nectarines and return to oven for 45-55 min. or until toothpick comes out clean.  Cover loosely with foil after 20 min. to prevent over-browning.  Best served warm with a scoop of ice cream on top!

You can substitute flours if you prefer others, just sub flour for flour and starch for starch.  You can also try another milk substitute but I have the best results with coconut milk.  Let me know what substitutes work for you!
