Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler recipe
- 1 lb fresh or frozen strawberries sliced or quartered
- 1/2 lb fresh or frozen rhubarb peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cups milk cow milk, soy, rice, or almond milk all work
- 1 cups flour all-purpose, whole wheat, or a blend of both
- 4 tbsp butter or margarine
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Place your strawberries, rhubarb, and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a medium saucepan, cover, and let simmer until the fruit is soft, stirring frequently. Keep it simmering until ready to use.
- In a large bowl, blend the flour, remaining sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the milk.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in the microwave, then pour it into a 9X11 glass baking dish. Swirl it around to coat the entire bottom of the dish.
- Pour the batter over the butter.
- Spoon the hot fruit over the batter, trying to keep it relatively even. Don't stir it in!
- Bake at 350 degrees for approximately an hour. To check if it's done, use a fork to lift up a bit from the middle. The cake portion should be fluffy and done, while the fruit and cake which touches the fruit will remain slightly gooey.
- Let the cobbler cool for about 10 minutes before serving. It's wonderful served with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream.
