I don't know about your summer, but mine is getting a little bit crazy! As I mentioned in a previous post, we're making a big move as a family and it's coming up very quickly! We leave in less than a month and so right now we're in the middle of all kinds of preparations, including lots of get-togethers with friends and family to say goodbye. As always, I've been busy in the kitchen preparing food to share and this Strawberry Rhubarb Skillet Cobbler has been my staple dessert recipe because it is SO easy to make (and totally delicious!)!
Is there anything better than a fruit-inspired dessert in the summertime? I don't think so. Especially one made with fresh fruit that happens to be in season! The strawberries have been so plentiful lately, and I haven't even had to go to a strawberry farm like in past years...don't tell my mom but the kids and I have been raiding the strawberry patch in her backyard garden on almost a daily basis! And don't even get me started on the rhubarb!! If you're following me on Snapchat you may have watched my daring rhubarb foraging adventure in the yard (daring only because I had to brave the mosquitos). Thankfully, my mission was successful and it resulted in this delicious strawberry rhubarb dessert and only a few mosquito bites.
Fortunately for me, I grew up in the mosquito capital of Canada (or maybe unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) so I'm used to fending off the bugs in the garden. I learned at an early age that garden adventures yielded fresh, delicious results so I'll gladly take a few mosquito bites in exchange for this Strawberry Rhubarb Skillet Cobbler. I'm sure once you try it you'll agree!!
Strawberry Rhubarb Skillet Cobbler (serves 6)
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups chopped fresh rhubarb
5 cups halved fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup whole milk
1 egg, beaten
1-2 teaspoons white sugar for garnish (optional)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Heat a medium (8-9 inch) cast iron skillet over medium heat and add the 2 tablespoons of butter. In a large bowl, toss the fruit with the 2 tablespoons of white sugar and add the fruit to the skillet once the butter has melted. Toss the fruit in the melted butter, then remove the skillet from the heat.
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, white sugar and sea salt with a wire whisk. Add the melted butter, whole milk and beaten egg and stir the mixture until it's combined and smooth.
Spread out the fruit into the bottom of the skillet and dollop the topping over the fruit in 4-6 large dollops.
Bake the cobbler at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 22-26 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the fruit is bubbly.
While the cobbler is hot, sprinkle the top with 1-2 teaspoons of white sugar.
Serve it with some delicious ice cream or whipped cream, or enjoy it all on its own!
