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.

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?

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!

I hope you try my Strawberry Cobbler Recipe soon. I think you’ll love it as much as we do!

  1. Been making this for years but with peaches! I was quite surprised when I went to a friend’s house and their cobbler was really a pie. This is a true southern cobbler recipe. If using peaches sprinkle a little cinnamon; YUM!

  2. My husband is diabetic. Could this be made with Splenda? I know it doesn’t make the ‘juice’ for the strawberries, but I could use a little suger in there uless you know of another sweetener that will make juice.
    Thanks,

    1. Joanna, I’m diabetic & I do use Splenda to make my strawberries “juicy” IF you feel you need to have a bit of sugar in it I think Splenda now has a white combination of Splenda/sugar like they have in their brown sugar. Also, Kroger has a “zero calorie sweetener Stevia Blend*” made with Reb A. the ingredients are Erythritol, Reb A, natural flavors. the box explains that “Stevia is made with Reb A, which comes from drying the leaves of the stevia plant, steeping them in water, purifying them, thus revealing the best and sweetest taste of the leaf.”
      Have a blessed day!

  3. Dear Robyn,

    Oh does this look scrumptious! Strawberries are plentiful now in Seattle and this cobbler is a must very soon! Cobblers are my husband’s favorite dessert and this one is a keeper!

    Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

    Warmly,
    Jan

  4. I made this today for a Mother’s Day dinner. It was so fast and easy to put together, and it was very popular with the family. Thank you for posting another go-to recipe.

  5. I just made this yesterday and it really was delicious and incredibly easy and quick to throw together, not to mention how wonderful it made the kitchen smell. I was wondering whether you could substitute the strawberries for four cups of any other appropriate cobbler-filling (peaches, cherries, blueberries), or whether there would be any conflict with that. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

  6. Now if I could just scale it down to a “mug cake”…that would be great, as I’m the only one in the family that would eat this.

  7. I didn’t have self rising flour so I used all purpose and it did not turn out. It is still edible though! 🙂

    1. I didn’t have self rising either but did a quick search and found a recipe to make your own. Three ingredients, super simple.

    2. Shoot. Just did the recipe with all purpose without noticing the difference. Kinda looks weird now. Oh well. Im hoping i can still eat it

  8. Decided to try this recipe since it’s Father’s Day and I love strawberries. Such a wonderful treat. Everybody loved it. Thanks for sharing.

  9. This recipe is amazing! I made this for the ladies at my work today, and everyone LOVED it. I think they love how simple it is to make more, I had to send everyone a link to this page. I will be making this again soon.

  10. This was DELICIOUS! I didn’t have quite enough strawberries, so I threw in some fresh peaches to equal 4 cups of fresh fruit & it is just so yummy. My husband & I had some for dessert last night & we’ll let the kids finish it off after brunch today. 🙂

    Thanks for the great recipe!

  11. I made this and everyone loved it. My boyfriend likes rhubarb so I made a plain rhubarb for him and it was equally delicious.
    A few days ago I realized I needed to use up some blackberries and cherries, so I figured why not a cobblah?
    I had left my recipe at my boyfriend’s house and I searched online to no avail and for the life of me I could not remember the site where I found the recipe. What was MY problem?
    So, I found a different recipe that sounded close to what I remembered.
    Well, it wasn’t.
    Booo! Hisssss!
    It was underwhelming.
    Although, I did enjoy the blackberry/cherry combination and will make it again with your recipe.
    A thousand thank-yous for sharing the scrumptiousness!

    1. I’m so glad you enjoyed the cobbler recipe! Sorry you didn’t have it with you the second time though! 🙂
      Nothing like a homemade cobbler to use those delicious berries of summer, right?!
      I hope you continue to enjoy it and other recipes I share. Thanks so much, Suzanne! xo

  12. Has anyone made this at high elevation? I’m at 4,500 feet and it didn’t turn out. I’m new to high elevation living and finding things difficult to make. I’m thinking this must be the reason it didn’t turn out.

  13. Hubby and I were craving something sweet late tonight, and we didn’t want to drive anywhere, nor did I have alot of ingredients on hand! But I typed in strawberry cobbler as I had some frozen strawberries and your recipe popped up! I also used your quick make your own self rising flour, and I only had half and half instead of milk…..long story short, this was AMAZING!!! So delicious and I can’t wait to make this again, thanks for posting!

    1. Yay! I’m so glad that you both enjoyed it, Jordan! I love being able to whip something up with what I have instead of going out! I’m so glad you were able to. It sounds like you had just the perfect ingredients for a delicious treat! xo

  14. Excellent. I was looking for a way to use up frozen strawberries. This was perfect. Added some blueberries to round out the 4 cups of fruit. Was delicious with and without the ice cream.

    1. Hi AnnMarie,
      I don’t pour off the juice from the thawed strawberries to make this. There usually isn’t that much liquid so it should not affect the results. Hope you enjoy this cobbler!

  15. My crust was not crispy, like I had expected or wanted. It was more wet/spongy. The taste was good, but the texture is less than desirable. Any thoughts?
