Rhubarb Cobbler

Hello Sugar Lovers!

For this week we made rhubarb cobbler. My mom was nice enough to give me some rhubarb and the recipe! Isn’t it great when someone does your work for you! Any who I have never made a rhubarb cobbler before so I wasn’t to sure how it would work out. Enough talk, lets get started guys.

The recipe is for Caramel Rhubarb Cobbler. You will need:

  • 7 Tbsp butter or margarine divided
  • 3/4 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup sugar, divided
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/4 Cups water
  • 6 Cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed
  • 3 to 4 Drops red food colouring, optional
  • 1 1/4 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 Tsp salt
  • 1/3 Cup milk
  • Cinnamon-Sugar
  • Whipped cream or ice cream, optional

Now you are able to use fresh or frozen rhubarb. I used frozen so make sure to take it out of the freezer and give it plenty of time to thaw. I put mine in a bowl with some water. Also make sure that when you freeze the rhubarb there is enough in the bag for the cobbler and that it is chopped up.

Once you are done thawing it you can get started with the cobbler! In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Add brown sugar, 1/4 cup of sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in water and rhubarb; cook and stir until its thickened. The recipe says about 5 to 8 minutes. I thought it took a long time and maybe I was doing something wrong but it just takes patience. Which I have tons of……not. A watched pot never boils right. So leave it to boil and stir frequently. At this time you can add the food colouring if you like. I didn’t use any in mine. Not because I wasn’t planning on it but because I simply forgot. After that you may want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Once that is done you are going to get your baking dish ready. The recipe says to put it into a 2 quart baking dish. I had no idea what that meant but I always saw my mom putting it into a glass dish that we had so I just did that. Make sure you grease it before you put the mixture in. Once you have done that you can set it off to the side.

In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar. Melt the remaining butter; add to dry ingredients with milk. So you can mix that all up. It won’t take to long it blended together nicely.

Then your going to drop by tablespoons onto the rhubarb mixture. I kind of just made loose balls out of the dough and placed them randomly on the rhubarb mixture. Once that is done you can put it in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes. I left mine in for 40 just because I really didn’t know what it was suppose to look like when its done. It said that the dough should be golden brown and the rhubarb should be bubbling.

When its done take it out then you can sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top. Now you can buy cinnamon sugar I believe. However, I keep some on hand and its super easy to make. Just mixing an even amount white sugar and cinnamon together and that’s it!

Once its done and served you can put whipped cream or ice cream on top if you like. Cody and I put some whipped cream on top and it tasted great.
