This Strawberry Cobbler Recipe is a classic Southern dessert! This easy strawberry cobbler recipe comes together quickly and bakes into a thick, sweet, yet still tart, strawberry layer topped with a cake like topping.
When strawberries are at their peak, we can’t get enough of them! We use them in our morning smoothies, topping our oatmeal, in my Strawberry Spinach Salad, and definitely, in those Strawberry Shortcakes that I’ve shared with your from the cookbook. Strawberries are by far Bart’s favorite fruit and one that I make sure to buy in bulk to stock the freezer so that I have them on hand all year long.
But my friends, let me tell you about this Strawberry Cobbler recipe. It is one of those recipes that just couldn’t get much simpler if I tried! It is made with just a handful of ingredients and comes together in a flash! It is one that I love to put together and then pop into the oven right before we sit down for supper if we have company over or even for our Sunday supper.
Easy Strawberry Cobbler Recipe
It is one of those desserts that takes hardly any effort on your part to make but is one that everyone always raves over. Cobblers have a way of doing that, don’t they? They are so comforting and satisfying that everyone just feels so welcome and special as they end a meal around your table.
And you know, that’s exactly how I want them to feel! Don’t you?
Strawberry Cobbler Ingredients
- Salted butter
- Self-rising flour
- Vanilla extract
- vanilla ice cream optional
How to Make Strawberry Cobbler
You make this strawberry cobbler in just a few easy steps.
As you melt your butter in a 9×13 baking dish, you whisk together your flour, sugar, milk and vanilla.
You then pour this batter into your melted butter (without stirring).
You toss your strawberries with just a little bit of sugar to bring out their sweetness and then spoon the strawberries into the butter and dough mixture. Again, you don’t stir.
Once you have added your strawberries, you pop your cobbler into the oven and bake it until lightly golden brown and it is set throughout, about 45 minutes.
As the cobbler bakes, the dough rises to the top to form a gorgeous crust on your strawberry cobbler. You can still see the hint of the strawberries popping through where they’ve bubbled as they’ve cooked.
I especially love to see it along the edges of the pan.
Yum! I could just dive right in! 🙂
I like to spoon the warm strawberry cobbler into dessert bowls and then add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Talk about heavenly!
Store Strawberry Cobbler
If you have leftover strawberry cobbler, cover the cooled cobbler well and store in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
To reheat in oven, cover with foil and reheat until heated throughout, about 20 minutes.

Strawberry Cobbler! So good and easy!
Thanks, Kathy. Don’t you just love how easy this cobbler is to make?
This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. It looks delicious 😋. I was wondering if anyone has tried making this using frozen strawberries, and if so, thaw first, put them in frozen…?
Linda, you can use frozen strawberries for this cobbler. I would recommend thawing them overnight and then proceeding with the recipe. Hope you enjoy!
Looked through a dozen cobbler recipes and chose this one. It was soooooo good and, yes, VERY easy to put together. Cut the recipe in half and we ate every bite! Next time I’m making the full recipe for the two of us.
I’m thrilled that you chose my recipe and loved the cobbler, Joan. Thanks!
I had some over ripe strawberries (and a sweet tooth) and went searching for an easy dessert recipe, this is amazing! It was so easy to follow, took very little time, and the pay off is incredible. I can’t stop eating it, it’s so delicious. Thank you!
I’m so glad you found this recipe and loved the cobbler, Alexis. I love how simple and easy it is to make, too.
I tried this and loved it. I’ve made it several times this summer. I have a question about the strawberries–do you measure 4 cups of whole strawberries or 4 cups after you hull and half them?
I measure the strawberries after they have been hulled and halved, Nicole. I’m so glad you like this cobbler. Thanks!
Can you use canned strawberries instead of fresh?
I haven’t made this cobbler with canned strawberries, Donna, but it should be fine. I would drain the the strawberries and follow the recipe the same as you would for fresh ones. Hope you enjoy!
recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups sugar but you only put in 1/4 cup in batter &1/4 cup in strawberry what happened to the other cup?
Ann, look at Step 2 in the Instructions where I add 1 1/4 cups sugar to the flour and add 1/4 cup to the strawberries. Hope you enjoy.
