Why this recipe works:

I look forward to this time of year every year. I’ve been spending all winter and spring eating strawberries that have been imported from warmer places. Sure, they satisfy my strawberry needs, but in now way do they compare to the ruby red, juice, and flavorful Oregon Hood strawberries.

I’ve written about them every year and each summer I’m inspired to create new sweet treats. I’ll share links to all of my favorite strawberry recipes at the end of this post.

One of the first things I made with my first full flat of freshly picked Oregon berries this summer was this cobbler. A couple years ago I came up with this easy cobbler recipe which I’ve used for berry cobbler as well as peach cobbler. It’s a no fail recipe that turns out perfectly every time.

I have tons of pie, crisp, and cobbler recipes on my site so if you love fruit recipes, be sure to check them out! They’re all fantastic when topped with vanilla ice cream!

Ingredients:

I’ll say this many times, but this recipe couldn’t be easier to make. All you need is:

  • fresh strawberries – stems removed and cut into bite sized pieces
  • fresh rhubarb – look for stalks that are dark red and not dried out
  • lemon juice
  • all-purpose flour
  • sugar
  • egg
  • cold butter

How to make this recipe:

Get ready to be impressed at how simple this is to make. No cooking experience needed. In fact, this is a great recipe to have the little ones help you make!

  1. Start by preheating the oven. Simple enough, right?
  2. Add the strawberries and rhubarb to a small baking dish and toss with the lemon juice. Keep in mind that the strawberries I use are very sweet so I don’t add any sugar to the fruit. The topping is super sweet on it’s own.
  3. In a small bowl you’ll combine the flour, sugar, and egg. It will seem weird because the mixture will be very crumbly. Just go with it. Sprinkle this mixture over the fruit.
  4. Finally, slice the butter super thin and cover the top of the cobbler. This will melt in the oven and the end result will be a crisp top and soft center to the sweet cobbler topping. Pure heaven, I tell you.
  5. Bake the cobbler to a golden brown perfection. You can serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or you can serve it cold. Either way, you’ll love it.

How to make it ahead of time:

Swimming in summer produce and want to make a cobbler to store away for the winter months? You can prepare this easy dessert recipe in a disposable aluminum baking dish, cover it as air tight as possible, and store it in the freezer.

To bake a pre-made frozen cobbler, you can either let it fully thaw in the refrigerator or you can put the frozen cobbler in the oven. If you cook a frozen cobbler, you would just need to allow for additional cooking time.

Another option is to simply freeze your summer fruit. You can lay everything out in a single layer on a baking sheet in the freezer until it freezes solid, then store it in an air tight freezer bag. This cobbler recipe works great with either fresh or frozen fruit.
