      Regular flour can be used in place of almond flour. For clarity on consistency, the consistency of pancake batter is also a good way of thinking of that.

      Here's what Erin says: You can buy a corn-free baking powder that does not contain cornstarch such as Hain Pure Foods, or use this conversion for the 1tsp baking powder. Add in 1/4 tsp baking soda with the dry ingredients, then add 1 tsp vinegar in after you mix the butter into the cobbler topping. If you're nervous about a vinegary taste (which I've never noticed) you can use 1 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp of cream of tarter. 1 1/2tsp of Arrowroot starch and Tapioca starch will work as a substitute for the cornstarch. We are just looking for a thickening agent.
