My Grandmother's Rhubarb Cobbler
This is a classic cobbler-topping recipe, which can be applied to just about any fruit in season. Try adding strawberries to the rhubarb as the season unfolds!
- 4 cups thinly sliced rhubarb Add to list
- 1 cup sugar, divided Add to list
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch Add to list
- 1 cup unbleached white or whole wheat flour Add to list
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder Add to list
- 1/4 teaspoon salt Add to list
- 1/4 cup cold butter, cut into cubes Add to list
- 1 egg Add to list
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Add to list
- 1/4 cup milk Add to list
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Toss the rhubarb with 1/2 cup of sugar and the cornstarch. Arrange the rhubarb in an 8- by 8-inch casserole dish. (You may dot this with a little butter if you like!)
Combine the remaining half cup of sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut in the butter with a fork or pastry blender until it is the consistency of coarse cornmeal. Beat the egg and vanilla into the milk and add to the flour mixture, stirring just until moistened.
Drop the batter onto the fruit. Bake for about 35 minutes or until the fruit is bubbly and the topping is golden.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
