Rhubarb Crisp

Apple and Rhubarb Crumble Spoons

Serving spoon-sized portions of dessert (on Asian-style spoons) is not a new idea but it is certainly a novel one. Making spoon-sized desserts means you can make two or three different simple dessert recipes and serve each one on a spoon. Imagine how pleased your dinner guests will be to have three delicious bite-sized desserts to enjoy.

You will need Japanese spoons for dessert-on-a-spoon recipes and usually you bake the dessert in one dish and then scoop it on to the spoons, wiping the sides and bottom of the spoons with paper towels so they look nice. This applies unless you are making no-bake desserts, in which case you can simply prepare them in the spoons.

This apple and rhubarb crumble contains lemon juice and ginger to complement the fruity flavor and they are garnished with fresh strawberry pieces and whipped cream. You can use aerosol cream on these if you want, since you only need a tiny bit on each one and you have more control with an aerosol spray. These are very small portions, after all. Continue reading

Easy Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

This wonderful dessert comes out great when you make it in the crockpot. The juicy rhubarb and strawberry mixture is complemented with lemon juice and sugar and the batter sets on top to make a heavenly crumbly topping which contrasts nicely with the fruity layer. Cobbler is famous in the UK as well as in the US and it is made by combining a hot fruit filling with pastry dough. Cobbler is usually oven-baked but it comes out beautifully in the crockpot too. There are different types of cobbler to choose from and names include the Slump, the Grunt, the Betty, the Sonker, and the Buckle. Crumbles and crisps are different from cobblers because cobbler usually has an oatmeal-based top layer.

Slumps, Grunts and Pandowdy come from New England and these are usually made in an iron pan or skillet in the oven, or on the stove. They “grunt” while they cook, which is where they get their name. Buckles are made with a cake-like, yellow batter and the filling and batter are combined. Sonkers are from North Carolina. A lot of cobblers in the Deep South are made with just one fruit variety, like blueberry, blackberry or peach and sometimes vanilla ice cream is served with the cobbler.

One-fruit cobblers are nice but so are those made with two or three different fruits combined. The following recipe combines rhubarb with strawberries and the crumbly top comes out really well in the slow cooker. You can serve this dessert hot, chilled, or warm and you might like to serve some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream with it, although that is optional. Continue reading

The Best Rhubarb Crumble Recipe Ever

Former Featured Rhubarb Recipe:

Rhubarb crumble is an incredibly popular dish and you can serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for spectacular results. Adults and kids alike enjoy this dish because it has a very special taste. If you are new to dessert-making, this would actually be a good one to cook because it is very simple and there is nothing really that can go wrong. You can even see when the rhubarb crumble is ready because the crumble mixture on top will be golden brown and you will be able to see the filling bubbling away underneath it.

This dessert is made in two parts. First you have the sweetened rhubarb mixture, which is spiced with vanilla and cardamom. Not all rhubarb crumble recipes feature cardamom but it does add a nice flavor. Some recipes also feature a second fruit, such as blackberries or apple. Again, that is up to you, but rhubarb has plenty of flavor already. On top of that you have the crumble mixture, which is a simple combination of brown sugar, flour, and butter, with a little salt for a nice flavor balance.

It is probably quicker to make the crumble in your food processor but if you do not have one, you can stir the dry ingredients together and use a pastry cutter or pair of knives to cut in the butter. This is how rhubarb crumble was made in the old days after all, and this dish was popular long before food processors were invented! Continue reading

Rainy Day Desserts like Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler

Some desserts are fun to make and cobbler is one of them. There are so many different ingredients to use separately or together to get great flavor and grab the attention of family and guests. One of the best things about cobblers is that, like crumbles, they are quick and easy to stir up, bake, and serve. Fresh fruit is always nice and cobblers provide the opportunity to use frozen fruits, too. Cobblers do not have a bottom crust. Cooks cover the filling with piecrust, biscuits, or batter similar to that used for drop biscuits.

This popular dessert does tend to make you think of a shoe repairperson and likely refers to the texture of the crust when done. Those who used to cook them over the woodstove or campfire would frequently put small holes in the crust to allow the steam to escape, looking much like the sole of a boot or shoe before repair. Cobblers are common desserts in the United Kingdom and the United States and use fruits like peaches, apples, cherries, blueberries, and blackberries. Since most fruits go well together, it is typical to find a blend of ingredients in this dessert.

Strawberry rhubarb cobbler is a welcomed treat because the colors are cheerful and the taste has a nice tang to it that wakes up the taste buds. It is easy to put into small containers and take as an extra lunch treat and it is one of those items to enjoy while watching a favorite television show or working at the computer.
