You are going to love this rhubarb cobbler recipe! It’s one of my favorite rhubarb dessert recipes. If you’re looking for easy rhubarb recipes, this should be at the top of your list. In New England, rhubarb is one of the first spring edibles I have in my yard.

Rhubarb Cobbler Recipe with Caramel Sauce

Rhubarb Cobbler Recipe

I have so many wonderful memories attached to rhubarb. My grandparents had a rhubarb plant. And, I remember my grandmother making stewed rhubarb and rhubarb pie every spring. 

This rhubarb cobbler recipe is a standard cobbler recipe with a base of rhubarb and caramel sauce. I’ve been making fruit cobbler recipes for years. But haven’t shared one in quite a while. 

But, if you like fruit desserts, you might want to try my Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Recipe. Or, my cherry crumble is another family favorite fruit recipe.

What is a cobbler?

A cobbler is basically a fruit filling that is baked with scoops of sweet biscuit dough on top. Unlike a crumble or a crisp, the scoops of dough are scattered around on top of the fruit filling rather than spread over the entire top.

Can I use another fruit?

Sure you definitely can. Because rhubarb is on the tart side, it’s often paired with other types of fruit. If you want a recipe for apple rhubarb cobbler, you can simply cut the amount of rhubarb in half and add the same amount of sliced apples. Follow the same method if you want a blackberry rhubarb cobbler.

Rhubarb Cobbler with Cake Mix

If you want to make this Rhubarb Cobbler with cake mix instead of the biscuit recipe I have included below, you can do that. Just substitute spoonfuls of prepared cake mix instead of the biscuits mixture.

Can I make a vegan rhubarb cobbler?

This recipe is not vegan because it uses butter and milk. If you want a vegan rhubarb cobbler recipe, you can use a non-dairy option for the butter and the milk. I haven’t tried it that way, but it should be fine. 

How can I make this rhubarb cobbler gluten-free?

You can substitute a one to one gluten-free flour mix like this one. I’ve used it a number of times when I was making baked goods and desserts for my daughter. I’ve never had a problem substituting it.

Can I make my own caramel sauce?

Yes, you can. I used a ready-made caramel sauce because it was easier. But, I have made my own caramel sauce in the past. I used Tastefully Simple because it’s what I hand on hand. If you want to make it from scratch, here is a caramel sauce recipe.

What can I top this with?

If you want to top your rhubarb cobbler with something, you can try vanilla ice cream. Or, you can always make homemade whipped cream

How do I store leftovers?

If you have leftovers, simply cover the pan with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator. Leftovers should stay good for three days.

When you want to eat it, you can reheat it in the oven for 15 minutes. Or, you can put your rhubarb cobbler in the microwave for a minute.
