It doesn’t make any sense but there is just something comforting about a warm cobbler. Peach cobbler is always a timeless choice but to change things up a bit we decided to make something a little different.
This strawberry cobbler recipe is something to write home about, bring to every social gathering, and worthy of eating even without the ice cream on top. The bright and delicious strawberry flavors will leave your tastebuds rejoicing.
If you have never had a cobbler before then you are in for a treat! It is the perfect mixture of sweet bread-like consistency with the amazing balance of sweet and juicy fruit. Ah, and that crispy top layer is something no other dessert can replicate while the top of the cobbler is crisp and sweet, the inside of the cobbler is gooey and jam-packed with sweet fruit.
It’s the perfect balance of everything all around, not to mention it has way less sugar than some other dessert recipes out there.
One of the things to love about making cobbler is how incredibly simple, yet delicious, it is. You probably already have everything ready to go in your pantry to make the perfect cobbler. Cobblers don’t really need a lot of show, the taste speaks for itself, so putting everything together is as easy as throwing your mixtures into a pan and baking. So let’s get to making this cobbler!
Tips Before You Begin
- Make sure that your raw berries are thoroughly washed. We don’t want any dirt bugs in our cobbler. Grab a bowl, add some vinegar and water to it, and let your strawberries sit in the vinegar mixture for a couple of minutes. Rinse the vinegar off and you are good to use your strawberries.
- This recipe calls for warm whole milk. You can either leave one cup of covered milk out on the counter for an hour or you can slightly warm it on the stovetop. Warming the milk allows the ingredients to mix together the way they need to for a cobbler consistency.
- If you are gluten-free but still love a good cobbler — swap out the all-purpose flour for your favorite flour alternative! There’s no need for you to miss out on this delicious dessert.
- If you are wanting to try something new, try swapping out regular granulated sugar for coconut sugar to make it a little healthier.
FRESH STRAWBERRY COBBLER
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cook Time: 40 minutes
- Servings: 8
- 3 cups (375g) fresh strawberries diced
- 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
- 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (100g) sugar
- 1 cup (237ml) warm whole milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 8 tablespoons (113g) unsalted butter melted
How to Prepare
- Start off by preheating your oven to 350ºF/170ºC.
- You will need two separate bowls to prepare this recipe. In your first bowl mix together your cut-up strawberries and ½ cup of sugar. Stir together until those strawberries have a nice good coat of sugar on them.
- In your second bowl mix together your cup of flour, two teaspoons of baking powder, ½ teaspoon of salt, and ½ cup of sugar.
- Add your cup of warmed milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter to the dry mixture and mix until it is fully combined.
- The best part — is you can just throw your mixture into a greased casserole dish. Then you are going to spoon out your sugar-covered strawberries all over the batter but DON’T STIR. All you have to do is let them sit on top and when you put it in the oven to bake it will work its magic.
- Put your casserole dish in the oven and let I bake for about 40min until you have a gorgeous golden top to it.
- Now, as was said before, this cobbler can definitely stand on its own two feet without the need for ice cream BUT there is nothing wrong with a creamy scoop of frozen ice cream on top of this warm and gooey cobbler. Ice cream and cobbler are just made to go hand in hand, so scoop that vanilla ice cream on top and enjoy the perfect swirl of flavors.
