Frequently Asked Questions
If you have questions about this strawberry rhubarb cobbler, then look no further. The following FAQ answers all the most common questions about strawberry rhubarb cobbler.
What is a cobbler?
A cobbler is a dessert made up of a fruit filling poured into a large baking dish and then covered with a batter, dumpling, or biscuit topping before being baked. Many cobblers, especially southern cobblers, actually involve putting the batter on the bottom of the dish and topping it with the fruit filling. The batter then rises to the top as it bakes.
Why is it called a cobbler?
Cobblers owe their name to their topping. Unlike a pie crust, which is smooth, a cobbler crust is cobbled and coarse.
What fruit compliments rhubarb?
Many fruits pair well with rhubarb. Some classic combinations include:
- Citrus fruits
Can you freeze strawberry rhubarb cobbler?
Absolutely. Cobblers freeze very well. Wrap the cobbler in a layer of plastic wrap and then in two layers of foil. If you can store it in the original baking dish, it will make reheating much easier.

How to Make Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler
It’s a simple matter to make this delicious cobbler. Both the filling and topping are very basic recipes.
Step 1: Prep
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and spray a 3-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Measure out all of your ingredients. Rinse your strawberries and cut off the stems.
Step 2: Make the Filling
Place all three cups strawberries and three cups rhubarb in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle them with sugar, brown sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch, then mix to coat thoroughly. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes, then stir again. Pour the fruit into the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly over the bottom of the dish.
Step 3: Make the Topping
Whisk flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl. Then, use a pastry blender to mix the butter into the flour mixture until the dough becomes crumbly. Pour boiling water into the flour mixture and stir until combined.
Step 4: Bake
Spoon the topping over the fruit, making an even layer. Bake uncovered for 40 to 45 minutes or until the topping is cooked thoroughly and has started to brown. Remove from the cobbler from the oven and let it sit for 10 minutes. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream! Enjoy!
