How to Make Easy Strawberry Cobbler Recipe

Ingredients to make strawberry cobbler recipe

Ingredients

Be sure to see the recipe card below for the full listing of ingredients, instructions, notes, and estimated nutritional information.

  • Strawberries – you can use fresh or frozen strawberries in my cobbler recipe.
  • Sugar – I like to use granulated sugar. You’ll notice the color of mine is beige, as I used organic sugar. You can also use your favorite sugar replacement for baking.
  • Butter – I use salted butter, but you can use unsalted butter. You can also use your favorite non-dairy butter for a dairy-free version.

for the cobbler batter

  • Flour – I use all-purpose flour. You can also use your favorite gluten-free flour for baking for a gluten-free version. You can also use self-rising flour and omit the baking powder from the cobbler batter ingredients.
  • Sugar – see the note above about sugar.
  • Baking Powder – helps the cobbler batter to rise and have a tender, cake-like texture when baked.
  • Salt – adds flavor to the cobbler batter.
  • Milk – I like to use whole milk or half and half. You can use your favorite non-dairy milk if needed for a dairy-free version.

Optional Ingredients:

  • Vanilla extract – I find that it enhances the flavor of the cobbler.
  • Ground cinnamon – For a cinnamon flavor in your cobbler, add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. This is delicious in winter for a cozy dessert recipe.

Step-by-Step Instructions

You make this strawberry cobbler in just a few easy steps.

Melted butter in a white baking dish

Prep. Preheat the oven to 350º F. Add sliced butter to the baking dish and place in the oven while it preheats to allow the butter to melt. Remove the baking dish once the butter has melted.

Prep the strawberries. Add strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar to a bowl and toss to combine.

Make the cobbler batter. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pour in the milk and whisk until smooth and well combined.

Assemble. Pour the sugared strawberries over the melted butter. Pour the batter over the top of the strawberries.

Bake. Place into the preheated oven and bake until golden brown on top, about 35 to 40 minutes.

    Followed recipe and added a splash of lemon juice. Cobbler was delicious!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Thanks, Donna. So glad you enjoyed the cobbler.

  2. Jay Alhadeff says:

    Has anyone tried this with almond flour. I’m doing a keto diet and can’t do regular flour. But this sounds amazing.

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Jay, I haven’t made this cobbler with almond flour. Maybe someone else on here has and can tell you how they made it. You can use a gluten-free flour such as one with a cup for cup measurement without making any other changes to the recipe.
