Rhubarb and Cinnamon Cobbler [#244]

I HAD planned to make a rhubarb cinnamon cake, but couldn't be bothered. You know how it is? So, instead I made Rachel's cobbler, with a few tweaks. A cobbler is basically a scone topping, made light and fluffy with buttermilk or yoghurt (which I used) and quite a wet mix that spreads out, to resemble cobbled streets. I had some wonderful outdoor rhubarb in the veg box, so instead of the usual ginger or orange, I mixed a little cinnamon into the light brown sugar that sweetened the fruit, and was rewarded with a deep, dark fruit layer to accompany the sweet scone topping. Yum! So, the blog is back on! Thanks for sticking with me


  1. Good to see you back Maggie. Hope everything has calmed down now.

  2. Yum - looks great and I can just imagine the taste. My mouth is watering ;0)

  3. Thank you Stacey! Yes things have calmed down a little after a horrid time, but Hubby is much better, thank you.

    Chele - it tasted as good as it looked. Lovely with some lightly wipped, cool cream
