Ingredients You’ll Need

Topping

  • All-Purpose Flour – This dry ingredient makes up the base of the cake-like topping.
  • Granulated Sugar – Adds sweetness to the batter that complements the natural sweetness of strawberries.
  • Whole Milk – Thins out the batter while keeping it creamy and moist.
  • Unsalted Butter – Adds a rich buttery flavor and helps give the topping a golden brown color when baked.
  • Baking Powder – This leavening agent helps the topping to rise slightly.

Strawberry Filling

  • Fresh Strawberries – Adds fresh strawberry flavor and texture to the filling along with natural sweetness.
  • Granulated Sugar – Enhances the natural flavor and sweetness of the strawberries and helps them break down.

How To Make Strawberry Cobbler From Scratch

  1. Prepare for baking: Preheat the oven to 375°F, and lightly grease a 2-quart or 11 x 8.5-inch baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Mix the batter ingredients: Combine the flour, sugar, milk, butter, and baking powder. Pour the batter into the baking dish.
  3. Prepare the strawberry cobbler filling: Mix the strawberries and sugar together, and carefully scoop the berries over the batter.
  4. Bake and serve: Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Strawberry Cobbler Recipe Tips

  1. Taste the strawberries ahead of time and adjust the sugar if needed. You may need more or less depending on the sweetness of the berries.
  2. Don’t stir the batter and the strawberries together. The batter will rise up around the berries as it bakes.
  3. If you don’t have fresh strawberries, you can use frozen ones instead. Just thaw them first and drain off any excess juice before using them in the recipe.

Variations

  • Instead of strawberries, try using a different type of fruit like blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries.
  • Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the batter for extra warming vanilla flavor.
  • Try serving with a scoop of French vanilla ice cream or Brown Sugar Cinnamon ice cream to make it a rich decadent treat.
  • If you’d like a more pronounced strawberry flavor in your cobbler, add ¼ cup of strawberry jam to the filling.
  • If you don’t have granulated sugar, you can use light brown sugar in its place.
  • Add some lemon zest to the filling for a tart citrus flavor.

Storing and Freezing

Storing: Store the cooled leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. The longer it sits in the fridge, the soggier the crust will get.

Freezing: The cobbler can be frozen for up to two months in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.
