Ingredients and Variations

Batter – Cobblers are cake batter, but in a pinch, you can use refrigerated biscuits or Bisquik. If making from scratch, feel free to use your favorite gluten-free flour blend.

Fruit – Fresh or frozen strawberries and rhubarb can be used. Frozen fruit doesn’t even need to be thawed. If using fresh, slice pieces equally so they cook at the same rate. Use a sugar-free alternative in both the syrup and the cobbler mix if you like.

Variations – Short on time? Make your cobbler in a crock pot using any fruit like apples or berries.

How to Make Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

  1. Simmer strawberries & rhubarb in a pot with sugar.
  2. Combine cake ingredients in a separate bowl (per recipe below).
  3. Add melted butter to the bottom of a baking dish and pour in batter.
  4. Spoon the cooked fruit over the batter. Bake.

Recipe Tips

  • Prep the cobbler mix (or make several mixes) and store them in zippered bags for last-minute cobbler baking goodness.
  • Pre-mix the fruit and freeze until ready to use. Perfect for last-minute BBQs with friends.
