Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler (+Video)
This easy Homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler has a thick strawberry rhubarb filling and is topped with a simple, crispy oat topping.
A DELICIOUSLY FRESH COBBLER RECIPE
I have been meaning to share this recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler for a while. Typically, strawberry season and rhubarb season run hand-in-hand. In most parts, the prime season for this fruit and vegetable is between April and June. I was surprised to learn that rhubarb is actually a vegetable. I don’t think I have ever treated it as a veggie. I’ve always eaten it in sweetened desserts.
WHAT DOES RHUBARB TASTE LIKE?
Rhubarb actually tastes pretty similar to green apples. It has a slightly tart taste. So, you can actually use it as a pretty acceptable substitute in those recipes where it calls for a green, tart apple. Most times, it works perfectly! This super simple Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler is topped with a slightly crunchy oatmeal crumble mixture. I added just a tad of cinnamon to the mixture to give it a bit more depth of flavor. It works really well with this recipe. If you want a super simple cobbler recipe, you gotta hop over and see my Skillet Cherry Cobbler! Also, my Banana Bread Cobbler is pretty spectacular too – ha!
INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

Can I use frozen rhubarb in place of fresh?
Yes you can. Allow to defrost and dry well to make sure no additional water (from it being frozen) get into the pie or else it won’t set up.
Saving this! I LOOOVE Rhubarb and I would probably just use that for the recipe. Strawberries add a nice sweet contrast to the rhubarb, but I absolutely love that tartness and adding other fruit to it kind of overpowers it. Might have to make another one as written for hubs because he didn’t grow up with a rhubarb patch in his backyard like I did. It IS an acquired taste. You either like it or not. Thanks Brandie!
love this recipe. i change up the fruit i use in it all the time!
Thank you so very much Kay! I love hearing that and I am so glad you find it so versatile with other fruits!
I have frozen rhubarb and strawberry. Should I use less water
No. The water in the fruit mixture is for the cornstarch to thicken it so she gives you the option to add flour for a thicker sauce. It’s used for the water that is extracted from the fruit while cooking. Most frozen fruit is flash frozen, no water added. As with all baking, use your best judgment.
I’m allergic to strawberries,can I substitute with blueberries?
I don’t see why not.
Good grief – could we please know the size of the baking dish for the Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler. Did I miss it? I need this info please.
Jerry, it says right there in the instructions – a 10-12 inch skillet.
This looks awesome!!
Thanks Dianne!! 🙂
That looks so good! Our rhubarb patch is done for the year, but I’m putting this on the list for next year!
It really is so easy! I’m fortunate that I can get some fresh rhubarb still at my local grocery store. Love it!
