My mother made this cobbler for hay balers at lunchtime and for her quilt club. I've shared the recipe with many friends and they say it's now one of their favorites.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 3 cups diced rhubarb
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Whipped cream or ice cream, optional


  • 1. Place rhubarb in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Sprinkle 1 cup sugar over and dot with butter. In a bowl, cream shortening and remaining sugar. Beat in egg. Sift together flour and baking powder; add alternately with milk to creamed mixture. Drop by tablespoonfuls over rhubarb. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream if desired. Yield: 10-12 servings.

"I put 5 cups Rhubarb in it instead of 3 because my husband loves lots of Rhubarb flavor and not too sweet. I also added cinnamon which we think is good with rhubarb. My husband loved it and gave it 5 lstars. It will be a favorite to make now."
