Now, that we’ve gone through the ingredient list in the previous section, it’s time to put everything together and create this delicious Vegan Rhubarb Cobbler. This recipe is very easy to follow, even for beginners or non-bakers. So, let’s get started!

Step 1: Preparing the Rhubarb

The first step is to wash and chop 5 stalks of rhubarb into small 1-inch pieces. Then, place them in a bowl and add 1 cup of chopped strawberries, 1/4 cup of maple syrup and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix everything together and let it sit while you prepare the rest of the recipe.

Step 2: Making the Batter

In a separate mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Stir everything together until well mixed. Then, add in your egg substitute of choice (equivalent to 2 eggs) and 1/4 cup of soymilk (or any plant-based milk), followed by 1/2 cup of melted margarine. Mix everything thoroughly until smooth.

Step 3: Assembling the Cobbler

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Grease a baking dish with some margarine or coconut oil. Then, pour your prepared rhubarb mixture onto the bottom of the dish evenly. Next, take spoonfuls of the batter mixture and place them on top of the rhubarb layer until it’s fully covered.

Step 4: Baking and Serving

Place the cobbler dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Once done, remove from oven and allow it to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Are you a fan of experimenting with different flavors and ingredients in your recipes? Then you’ll love the substitutions and variations for this vegan rhubarb cobbler recipe.

For those who are avoiding gluten, try using spelt flour or a gluten-free all-purpose flour instead of traditional wheat flour. You can also use almond flour to give the cobbler a slightly nutty flavor.

If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to the cup of sugar, try substituting coconut sugar or maple syrup. The maple syrup will also add a subtle richness to the dish.

While this recipe calls for soymilk, you can use any non-dairy milk you have on hand, such as almond or oat milk. These swaps won’t change the flavor of the cobbler but will make it dairy-free for those who need it.

Strawberries are commonly combined with rhubarb in recipes, but why stop there? Try adding raspberries or blueberries to your cobbler for a tart and sweet twist.

If you don’t have margarine on hand, substitute with coconut oil or another plant-based butter alternative.

Feeling creative? Swap out the rhubarb entirely and make an apple crumble or bars by using sliced apples and adding cinnamon and nutmeg to give it that cozy, autumnal taste.

No matter what changes you make, this vegan rhubarb cobbler recipe is versatile enough to accommodate almost any preference or dietary restriction without losing its deliciousness.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully baked a delicious vegan rhubarb cobbler or crumble. Now, you may be wondering what to do with the leftovers or how to store it for later use. The good news is that this dessert dish can be easily made ahead of time, stored and reheated without compromising its taste and texture.

If you want to make it in advance, you can easily prepare and assemble the recipe a day or two before serving. Simply cover the cobbler or crumble tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake it.

The leftovers can also be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. If you need to keep it longer than three days, store it in the refrigerator for up to six days.

To reheat your leftover vegan rhubarb cobbler or crumble, just pop it in the microwave on low heat for a few minutes or heat it in the oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes until heated through. Make sure to loosely cover the cobbler or crumble with foil to avoid burning the crisp topping.

If you decide to add a scoop of ice cream on top of your reheated vegan rhubarb cobbler or crumble, it’s important to note that some dairy-free ice creams may melt more easily than traditional ice creams due to their lower fat content. So, make sure to serve your dessert immediately after adding ice cream or store it back in the freezer.

Now that you have your vegan rhubarb cobbler recipe prepared, it’s time to ensure that you obtain the best results. Although the recipe is simple, a few tips and tricks can make it go from good to great. Here are some tips to perfect your vegan rhubarb cobbler recipe.

Firstly, before mixing in the batter with rhubarb pieces, it is essential to make sure that your flour, baking powder and salt are properly mixed. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and use a whisk to combine them thoroughly. This helps avoid clumps of flour and will help your batter become more consistent.

Secondly, for the vegan egg substitute, we advise using unsweetened apple sauce or mashed banana. Both options provide the right consistency and moisture needed for binding agents without adding too much sweetness. Plus, they add a natural flavor that pairs well with rhubarb.

Thirdly, for the margarine in the recipe, ensure that it is at room temperature. A colder margarine can create inconsistencies in texture when mixed with dry ingredients or rhubarb pieces.

Fourthly, when making substitutions or variations to the recipe instead of using maple syrup feel free to use honey or agave nectar for added sweetness. Also, if you prefer a gluten-free option try substituting spelt flour with gluten-free flour blends.

Lastly, choose fresh rhubarb stalks instead of canned ones since they have better texture and taste fresher. Ensure that your rhubarb is not too ripe; otherwise, it can become stringy and lose its shape when baked.

By keeping these tips in mind, you can ensure that every bite of your vegan rhubarb cobbler is packed with flavor and perfectly textured!
