Until a week ago, I don’t think I had a clue what a Platz was, but boy am I happy I do now! A friend of mine Mama__B posted a great recipe on her blog for a peach raspberry platz. It looked absolutely delicious, and I had a TON of peaches to use up so I decided I was going to try making a gluten free variation… and it turned out great!
You can see the original recipe here. My variation is posted below. It was super simple, and a big crowd pleaser. Something you can whip up in a pinch! Give it a try this weekend and let me know what you think.
- 1 cup white rice flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup cold butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup golden brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 peaches, chopped (I used white peaches)
- 1 cup raspberries (I used blackberries, but I think any berry would do!)
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/8 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and (rice) flour an 8×11.5 pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the rice flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. I just do this with my hands….seems to do the job well!
In a smaller bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir into the rice flour mixture.
Pour into prepared pan and cover evenly with the fruit.
Combine the crumb ingredients in a bowl and sprinkle over the fruit and batter. I wanted the fruit to poke out a bit so I just made a half recipe of the crumb (which is what I have included above) but you can double that if you want a more full cover of crumb on top.
