    A cobbler is similar to a crumble, but with a light scone-like topping. Rhubarb makes a perfect cobbler, though you can also try this with other fruits of your liking.

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6. Lightly grease a 23cm square baking dish.
    2. In a saucepan, mix 150g sugar and cornflour. Stir in the rhubarb and water. Bring to the boil. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Dot with 15g butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon.
    3. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

    I didn't add the extra butter on top of the cooked rhubarb but it tasted superb all the same. I can thoroughly recommend this tasty pudding and the cinnamon was a lovely twist.  -  01 Jul 2013

    This was very easy to make and all the family thought it was delicious. We have lots of rhubarb in the garden and I am always looking for different ways to use it. This is definitely the BEST rhubarb recipe I have ever made. Thank you very much.  -  28 Jul 2015
