Growing Out On A Limb

Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

Leave a comment

Mmm… rhubarb season.  I found this recipe at one of my favorite foodie sites,

I was expecting the cobbler crust to be biscuit-like but it was soft and more like cake.  You might add a bit more sugar if you like it really sweet, as the tartness of the rhubarb really comes through here.  And I love the flavor of the orange zest in there.

I wish I had a picture but this one disappeared before I thought of it!


4 1/2 cups rhubarb, cut into 1-inch pieces

1 1/2 cups strawberries, sliced (I used frozen)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 Tbsp flour (original recipe calls for quick cooking tapioca but I found the flour substitution on an ingredient substitution list)

1 tsp grated orange peel


2 Tbsp granulated sugar

1 cup flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup milk

1 egg, lightly beaten


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, flour, and orange zest in a large bowl.  Let sit to macerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

In another bowl, combine 2 Tbsp sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt.  Cut the butter in with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in the milk and egg just until moistened.

Pour fruit into a 9 x 13 casserole dish.  Drop batter on the fruit.  Bake for 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
