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

How to Make Strawberry Cobbler

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

Batter being poured into baking dish of melted butter //

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).

Bowl of ripe strawberries that have been tossed with a small amount of sugar //

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.

 Strawberries added into baking dish of melted butter and cobbler batter //

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.

Recipe Review


  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!

    1. I’m new to your site and can’t wait to try your yummy strawberry cobbler! Your simple southern recipe is what I’ve been searching for. Can you freeze this cobbler?

    2. Welcome to Add a Pinch, Tracy. You can freeze this cobbler. I would let it cool thoroughly, wrap securely or place in air-tight, freezer safe container, and freeze up to 3 months. Hope you enjoy!

  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.

    1. 5 stars
      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!

    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!

    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.

    1. I’m so happy you and your family enjoyed it, Leslie! I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Thanks so much! xo

  5. 5 stars
    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. 5 stars
    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.

    1. Definitely. I would recommend thawing them overnight and then proceeding with the recipe.

  7. 5 stars
    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.

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

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 5 stars
    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!

    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

    1. Hi Tess,
      I’ve not used a scone mix before so I can’t say how it will turn out. I hope you enjoy the cobbler! Thanks!

  13. 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.

    1. Hi Christine,
      You can use frozen strawberries if you wish. You should thaw them before baking the recipe. Enjoy! Thanks!

  14. 5 stars
    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

  15. 5 stars
    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. I’m thrilled to hear that you enjoyed it, Karen! Cobbler is a delicious dessert, isn’t it?! Thanks!

    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!

    1. Hi Georgia,
      You could use fresh plums for this cobbler. I think it would be delicious!

  16. 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? 

    1. Hi Nikki,
      I’m sorry you were disappointed with the crust. This is not a flaky, crisp crust like a pie crust.

  17. Can I use this recipe to make peach, apple & blueberry cobblers. If so, do you have recipes? I so look forward to your response. Thanks,

  18. 5 stars
    My cobbler came out a bit darker (I used brown sugar so I’m sure that’s why). But this recipe was delicious! I wouldn’t change anything about it. I will surely pick up some ice cream to really enjoy it!

    1. The brown sugar would make this cobbler darker, Key. You do need to try it with ice cream. It just adds another delicious flavor to this dessert.

  19. 5 stars
    Made this for my birthday since I don’t care for cake and this was amazing. My very picky husband is still raving about it. Thank you for a quick, delicious recipe!

    1. Happy late Birthday, Christy. Strawberry cobbler sounds like a perfect birthday treat. So glad you and your husband both loved this. xo

  20. Haha! Totally missed the self rising flour part. Oops. Flavor was good, cant wait to remake with the correct flour to enjoy that good cobbler!

  21. 5 stars
    It turned out wonderful!!! I bought a BUCKET of strawberries from the farmers market yesterday and today woke up wanting something sweet. I had never made a cobbler before, so to google I went. Your recipe popped up and I followed it to the letter! It was really easy and delicious!! I will add this to my bag of tricks☺️

    1. I’m so glad your first cobbler turned out so well, TW. I hope you find many more recipes here that you loves just as much.

  22. Hi!
    I always use unsalted butter when cooking……especially baking……is this a misprint? If it is not a misprint can you assure me that this will not be too salty? Thanks!

    1. I use salted butter in this recipe and in most of my baking, Regina. It is just a personal preference of mine. People’s tastes are different. If you always use unsalted butter, I cannot assure you that you won’t find a recipe made with salted butter too salty. You can always use unsalted butter in this recipe.

    This cobbler is delicious! I didn’t have self rising flour and improvised, but it still turned out perfectly.

  24. 5 stars
    I was looking for a recipe for my leftover strawberries before they went bad. I found this one and now it will be part of my dessert rotation! Loved it! It was very easy to make and not time consuming. Instructions were simple and something I could whip up since these are typical everyday ingredients. It came out just like the picture and tasted just as good. This never happens to me. I usually screw up a recipe! Lol! Thank you!

    1. Miri, I love that this cobbler is so easy to make and tastes great! I’m so happy it turned out so well for you and you loved it. Thanks.

  25. 5 stars
    Literally the best!!! I have made this multiple times, for friends and family, everyone loves it! It’s so dang easy to make and so delicious!

    1. Thanks, Stephanie, don’t you just love how easy it is to make! I’m so glad your friends and family loves this cobbler. xo

    1. I don’t use baking powder, Sara. I use self-rising flour which already has the leavening agents in it. I’m sorry this didn’t work for you.

  26. My daughter just made this tonight, and it was so good! The topping was like a cross between a chewy cookie and cake. I loved it and will use this recipe for future cobblers even with different fruits. Thanks for sharing!

  27. Robyn,
    Could you possibly make this cobbler in a cast iron skillet? I am going to make it tonight for my parent’s anniversary.

    1. I would use a 12-inch skillet, Emily. Hope your parents have a happy anniversary!

  28. 5 stars
    My cobbler turned out perfectly and was very easy to make. However, the sugar was a tad bit for me, but my mom said it was fine for her. I would cut back on the sugar for my next one. Thanks for sharing!

  29. 5 stars
    Thank you for this recipe. I had a bumper crop of strawberries so looked for a recipe to use them up and I’m so glad I found this one. It couldn’t get any easier. A delicious dessert, that looks fancy, with very little effort!

    1. Thanks, Theresa. Aren’t you lucky to have your own fresh strawberries!

    1. Katherine, I wrap any leftovers in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.

  30. 5 stars
    Absolutely awesome & easy. Wonderful with ice cream for sure. I will fix this again & again with different fruits as well. Thank you for a great dessert recipe.

  31. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I’ve made it about 5 times in the past two months and it doesn’t last more than one night left over. My parents say it’s their new favorite cobbler!

    I’d love to try a blueberry cobbler if you have a recipe!
    Would you substitute the strawberries for blueberries or would that change the ingredients and instructions completely?

  32. 5 stars
    First time I ate cobbler, first time I made a cobbler. I used frozen strawberries that were in the freezer too long. Absolutely outrageous. A Five-Star hit. After I make another using up the rest of my frozen strawberries, I’m going to try your chocolate cobbler. This is incredibly easy and exquisitely yummy. Great hot and great cold right out of the fridge. Thank you so very much for this spectacular recipe.

  33. Yeah it needs to be more clear re: self-rising flour. Or provide an alternative with baking powder for those without the appropriate flour.

    1. Cass, if you don’t have self-rising flour, just click on the blue highlighted “self-rising flour” in the ingredients list and will take you to the recipe for making your own with all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.

  34. I had about 4 containers of strawberries and I wanted to make something besides strawberry shortcake with them so I googled ” what can I make with strawberries ? ” and your recipe popped up and I made it and we love it sooo much !!!
    Thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe God bless you and your family

    1. Judy, I use a 9×13 casserole dish for this cobbler. Your 9×9 dish would not be big enough for this recipe.

    1. Gina, you should be able to make half this recipe with no problem. Hope you enjoy!

  35. 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…?

    1. Linda, you can use frozen strawberries for this cobbler. I would recommend thawing them overnight and then proceeding with the recipe. Hope you enjoy!

  36. 5 stars
    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.

  37. 5 stars
    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!

    1. I’m so glad you found this recipe and loved the cobbler, Alexis. I love how simple and easy it is to make, too.

  38. 5 stars
    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?

    1. I measure the strawberries after they have been hulled and halved, Nicole. I’m so glad you like this cobbler. Thanks!

    1. 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!
