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!



Preheat oven to 350° F.

Toss the rhubarb with 1/2 cup sugar and 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 1/2 cup 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.
