Rhubarb Mallow Cobbler Recipe

From her kitchen in Webster City, Iowa, Judy Kay Warwick writes, “My mom used to make this every year when I was growing up. Now we take fresh rhubarb to my son in Texas so he can share this recipe with his family.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 4 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine rhubarb and 1-1/2 cups sugar. Transfer to a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with marshmallows.
  • 2. In a small bowl, cream the butter, vanilla and remaining sugar until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Beat just until moistened; spoon over rhubarb.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 10-12 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
