How To Make Strawberry Cobbler From Scratch

- 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
- 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.
- Don’t stir the batter and the strawberries together. The batter will rise up around the berries as it bakes.
- 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.
- 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.
