Last week we dove right into this Rhubarb Strawberry Cobbler. My mom’s yummy cobbler is truly the best! This family favorite desert is sweet and tart, chock-full of summer berries and rhubarb. And the best part is a thick crust, so easy to make.

Rhubarb Strawberry Cobbler

With fresh rhubarb and strawberries in the stores now, this is it! My mom cooked with a lot of rhubarb, because she’d cross the river and get it free from the orchards in our area. If you love raspberries, then try our Raspberry Crisp. Or for breakfast, our Raspberry Rhubarb Buttermilk Cake. Delish!

Strawberries and rhubarb are one of my favorite flavor combinations. This easy fruit dessert recipe is one of my favorites to make for company! Somewhere between a cake, and a cobbler, is this mixture of fruit with a thick, buttery batter baked on top. And the “icing on the cake” is serving it with vanilla ice cream.

The thick crust is so easy, and it’s delicious served with my mom’s Old-Fashioned Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream recipe! Or, try this Rhubarb Buttermilk Coffee Cake for a holiday weekend!

Tips and substitutions:

  • Optional to use all strawberries for this recipe, or follow this Best Strawberry Cobbler recipe (if you don’t like rhubarb).
  • Another option is to freeze your summer fruit. You can lay everything out in a single layer on a baking sheet in the freezer until it freezes solid, then store it in an air tight freezer bag. This recipe works great with either fresh or frozen fruit.

  • Do I need to cook rhubarb before making a pie? No, you do not have to precook rhubarb for pie or cobbler. Just chop it up, and mix with the strawberries!
