  • 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 with a big scoop of ice cream or whipped cream after the cobbler has cooled slightly.
