Peach Cobbler, Gluten Free and Vegan

This is my Aunt Jamie's beloved peach cobbler recipe from my childhood (with a few alterations of course). The last time I spoke to her she said "it's called Poor Man's Cobbler", and I said "no, it's called Aunt Jamie's Cobbler, it says so right here in my cookbook." :)
I have been playing with different flour blends and am still perfecting it, but I have found it's better to go very light on the starches. I hope this cobbler makes you feel as happy on the inside as it does me!

1/2 c Margarine
1 c Sugar
1 c Soy milk
1 c Gluten free flour blend
1 t Salt
1 1/2 t Baking powder
1 Pinch of baking soda
1/2 t Cinnamon
1 Quart canned peaches (or other desired fruit)- drained

Preheat oven to 350. Put the margarine into a medium sized casserole dish and place it in the preheating oven to melt.

Mix together the sugar, soy milk, flour blend, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.

Once the margarine is melted, remove dish from the oven and pour in half of the batter. Pour in the peaches, then pour the remaining batter over that.

Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until dough rises up to cover the peaches and is golden brown. (Depending on what your specific gluten free flour blend is, it may not turn golden brown, but it will look dry on top and will be fluffed up over the peaches).
