There has always been some confusion about whether rhubarb is a fruit or a vegetable.  I guess I’ve always considered it to be a fruit, but regardless, there is one thing I know for certain spring just wouldn’t be spring without it.

Whether I’m making up a batch of homemade jam, or a strawberry pie, the tartness of these red stalks, always adds just that ‘extra’ punch of flavor!

But our family favorite has to be-HANDS DOWN-Rhubarb Cobbler.


It never fails, whenever I take my first bite of this dessert, I can never decide which is my favorite.

The sweetness of the brown sugar-the crunchiness of the oatmeal-the spiciness of cinnamon-or,  the tang of rhubarb?  

Rhubarb Cobbler

[yumprint-recipe id=’25’]Preheat oven to 350.  Combine the ingredients for the filling in a large mixing bowl.

 Coat the rhubarb well, and place in a greased baking dish. (I use a 9 inch pie plate-but if you want a thicker cobbler-you can use an 8×8 pan.)

In a small mixing bowl, mix dry topping ingredients together, cut in butter.

Place topping over filling.  Bake 40-45 minutes.

Happy Thursday!

Blessings and hugs,
