How To Make Strawberry Cobbler


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the inside of a 9×13 baking dish or casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl add the strawberries, ½ cup white sugar and brown sugar. Toss until well combines and set to the side, allowing fruit to sit in the sugar to the side for the strawberry layer.
  • In a second mixing bowl, add flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix and blend these ingredients well.
  • To the flour mixture add the butter cubes, heavy whipping cream, vanilla and lemon juice and mix again until a crumbly dough forms. I recommend using an electric mixer, but you can also blend with a fork or pastry cutter. It is ok if there are small pieces of butter in the dough.
  • Pour the strawberry mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with spoonfuls of the cobbler dough mixture, spreading evenly over the strawberries.
  • Bake the strawberry cobbler for 45-50 minutes. or until the top is light golden brown and the strawberries are gooey and bubbling.
  • Allow the cobbler to cool for at least 10-15 minutes before serving. The longer it cools, the less runny the dish will be. I recommend using a spoon instead of a spatula like I used. Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

Variation Ideas


  • Use A Mix Of Berries – I love strawberries in this cobbler, but that doesn’t stop me from cleaning out the fridge and throwing in a mix of berries. Blackberries, raspberries and blueberries are all equally delicious made into fruit cobblers. Peaches are also really delicious as a cobbler, try the peach cobbler dump cake too!
  • Add Rhubarb– You can add fresh, diced rhubarb to make it a strawberry rhubarb cobbler easily. I recommend adding no more than 1 cup of rhubarb. I honestly don’t see rhubarb much in the stores any more living in Arizona, but we always had rhubarb in the summer in Ohio and it was delicious! The strawberry rhubarb cobbler will be a little thicker and a little less sweet than just strawberries by themselves, as the rhubarb has a sourness that balances the strawberries well. Here is a little more info about rhubarb if you’ve never cooked with it before.
  • Top With Whipped Cream – While ice cream is usually the preferred topping for warm cobbler, a good swirl of whipped cream or whipped topping like Cool Whip is also delicious.
  • Add Pecans– Pecans go especially well on top of this dessert, I like to sprinkle them on top of the buttery dough just before baking.

Will Strawberry Cobbler Freeze?


I don’t recommend freezing this strawberry cobbler as the texture of the strawberries after being baked in the cobbler doesn’t hold up well in the freezer.


Can I Use Frozen Strawberries?


I don’t recommend using frozen strawberries in this recipe, while it may seem like a good idea the fresh fruit is best. When I have made this with frozen strawberries there was just too much extra liquid, and the berries were too squishy. Frozen strawberries can make the top of the batter just a little too wet and I find the juicy berries just aren’t as delicious.


How Long Will Strawberry Cobbler Last?


Expect this easy strawberry cobbler recipe will last for about 3-4 days when stored in a covered airtight container in the refrigerator, or you can also cover it tightly in plastic wrap in the fridge. I recommend reheating the cobbler before enjoying as I think it is best a little bit warm.

Tips
  • This easy cobbler recipe may seem a little liquidy when you first pull it out of the oven, but the cobbler batter with be golden brown. As the cobbler starts to cool, more of the strawberry juices will soak into the biscuit topping and it will be slightly less liquidy.
