Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

Our rhubarb plants are taking over our yard. Well, not really, but I am having a hard time keeping up with them. They are getting big fast and I am trying to keep up. So I hope you like rhubarb because you will probably be seeing several rhubarb recipes in the near future:) One of my favorite rhubarb desserts is Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler. I prefer cobbler over pie because I love a good rustic dessert.

This Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler is easy to make and is topped with a thick, biscuit-like cobbler crust. The rhubarb is tart, but the strawberries and sugar add a nice blend of sweetness.

I like to make the cobbler in individual dishes, but you can make a large cobbler if you wish. The cobbler is best served warm out of the oven with a dollop of whipped cream, ice cream, or rhubarb sorbet.

If you are looking for ways to use up your rhubarb, try this Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler. I am already thinking about making it again. Good thing I have an abundance of rhubarb:)

Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

Yield: Serves 6

Cook Time: 30-35 minutes


4 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb
1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 teaspoon orange zest

For the cobbler crust:

2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling


1.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, mix the rhubarb and the strawberries with the sugar, corn starch, and orange zest. Let sit for 30 minutes to bring out the juices.

2. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons of sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Cut the butter in with a pastry blender or your hands. Combine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add in the milk, egg, and vanilla, stir until just moistened. Don't overmix.

3. Pour strawberries and rhubarb into a 2-quart casserole dish or individual casserole dishes/ramekins.  Drop the cobbler batter on top of the fruit. Sprinkle turbinado sugar over the cobbler topping. Bake for 30-35 minutes until cobbler crust is golden brown and fruit filling is bubbling. If desired, serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

    I desperately want to make a cobbler!

    Oh rhubarb is still new to me, I have tried it in a crisp and loved it. That’s so cool that you are growing it on your own. This looks delicious. I love fruit desserts!

    Your new space looks great guys!! Going to take a look around! :)

      Thanks Aggie!

    Next year I am going to plant rhubarb! I love it – and your cobbler looks fantastic. I agree on the pie versus cobbler debate – cobbler is more rustic, more fun.

    Love this fresh, new look! I also loooove that cobbler… strawberry/rhubarb is one terrific combo. I prefer cobbler over pie because it takes less time! 😉

  12. Kelly — May 25, 2011 @ 2:57 pm

    Looks gorgeous and I must admit I’m incredibly jealous about the idea of rhubarb taking over your yard. I love urban living but I would LOVE a yard to be taken over by all kinds of delicious edibles.

  13. Alysa (InspiredRD) — May 25, 2011 @ 3:20 pm

    I have always wanted to make this. Thank you for the recipe! Love the new look of the blog :)

  14. I love the new look!! Very easy to navigate :) I’ve been wanting to try something with rhubarb too and this recipe would be perfect. Maybe I’ll use it for a grad party I have to bake for!

  15. Amanda — May 25, 2011 @ 3:35 pm

  18. Feast on the Cheap — May 25, 2011 @ 3:55 pm

    Love the new site…and I’m so jealous you have a backyard full of rhubarb. Or a backyard, really 😉

  19. Annalise — May 25, 2011 @ 4:07 pm

    My rhubarb really has taken over my back yard and I am in no way keeping up. Thanks for another great recipe to add to my collection!

    Also, LOVE the new look!

    • Two Peas replied: — May 25th, 2011 @ 9:42 pm

      Our rhubarb is going crazy too! Let me know what you come up with:)

  20. Urban Wife — May 25, 2011 @ 4:13 pm

    I have yet to try rhubarb and this looks like a great place to start! :)

  21. heidi leon — May 25, 2011 @ 4:48 pm

    I wish I could get my hands on some nice rhubarb, but here in Macau (China) is almost unknown.

    Congratulations on the new look, it does look fresher and tastier!!

  22. thepickyeater — May 25, 2011 @ 4:53 pm

    love the new look ! i love the pics in this post….especially the strawberries :-)

  23. Erica — May 25, 2011 @ 6:06 pm

    LOVE the new look. Sort of modern- very cool! And this cobbler- YUM! As I always note, crisps/cobblers are my most favorite baked dessert. Fruit+topping+ whipped cream- you cannot go wrong.

  24. Jennifer — May 25, 2011 @ 6:59 pm

    I like the new look, but is there any way you can go back to having your full posts show up when using a feed reader? They’re being truncated now.

  25. Katrina — May 25, 2011 @ 7:23 pm

    Mmm so tasty looking. Also, love the new look. So fresh!

  26. Joanne — May 25, 2011 @ 8:17 pm

    Loving the new look of the blog Maria! Also love a good cobbler. That crust is the best part!

  27. Kristel T.M. — May 25, 2011 @ 8:28 pm

    I love rhubarb and strawberry together. I think I grew up eating that combo. I miss rhubarb so much. It’s not really a desert plant. Although it wouldn’t hurt to try! Thank you for sharing!

  28. brandi — May 25, 2011 @ 8:29 pm

    I love the new look! And this cobbler just looks perfect :) We’ve been enjoying a lot of strawberry rhubarb dishes lately, too – the more the merrier!

  29. I love rustic desserts too! Love the new look!

  30. Angie — May 25, 2011 @ 8:51 pm

    You site looks so cute now, and I love the cobbler, yum!

  31. I just bought a bunch of rhubarb yesterday. Your new design looks so fresh and sleek! Congrats!

  32. Elizabeth — May 25, 2011 @ 9:26 pm

    Looks delicious! If you need some more ideas, head over to my blog; I’m having a Rhubarb Week! :-) So far, I’ve made Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake, Lentils with Rhubarb and Caramelized Onions, and Roasted Rhubarb with wine and vanilla. I’m having a blast!

    • Two Peas replied: — May 26th, 2011 @ 1:41 pm

      Thanks so much Anna!

  35. This looks incredible!

  36. Cookin' Canuck — May 25, 2011 @ 10:22 pm

    Love the new look, Maria! And this cobbler looks fantastic. You are making very good use of your rhubarb crop.

  37. Speckk — May 25, 2011 @ 11:11 pm

    It doesn’t look like you peeled your rhubarb in the picture. Does that make it stringy? That could save a bit of time to skip a step recommended in several recipes

    • Two Peas replied: — May 26th, 2011 @ 1:40 pm

      I never peel rhubarb. I guess I am lazy:) I chop off the ends which tend to be the most stringy part. I’ve never had a problem.

  38. Lacey — May 25, 2011 @ 11:37 pm

    This looks so good! I’ve only ever had rhubarb once, and I’ve never cooked with it, but I might have to try now!

  39. Kristen — May 26, 2011 @ 2:30 am

    Loving your new design!

  40. susan — May 26, 2011 @ 4:24 am

    Love the new look, Maria. And the cobbler looks pretty delicious as well!
