Strawberry Cobbler is the ultimate spring and summer dish. This recipe is a family favorite that everyone loves to see on the table no matter if you’re serving it for a brunch, a snack, or even dessert.
Fresh Strawberry Cobbler
This strawberry cobbler features fresh strawberries, thickened with sugar and cornstarch topped with sweet and crumbly biscuits served up bubbling hot with fresh whipped cream.
If you want a CAKE with fresh Strawberries in the batter try my Fresh Strawberry Cake! Or this Strawberry Pound Cake with its strawberry glaze swirl is fresh and delightful. Ok ok just one more dessert idea for you, the Fresh Strawberry Cobbler is easy and delicious!
Fruit Cobblers can be made in several ways
Typically cobblers are made in three different ways:
- biscuit topped-fruit cooked on the bottom and topped with sweetened (American style) biscuits
- fruit topped with a biscuit-y topping just crumbled over the top of everything
- the final style is made with a bottom and top crust with fruit in the middle, almost a pie but not as precise as a pie, if that makes sense
This Strawberry Cobbler is the biscuit topped style of a fruit cobbler. I love this kind of cobbler, like in my Rhubarb Cobbler, so delicious!
If you prefer the second style of cobbler you can crumble the biscuit mix over the top of the cooked strawberries before baking in the oven.
What do I need to make this Old Fashioned Strawberry Cobbler?
- corn starch
- all-purpose flour
- milk or buttermilk
- baking powder
- lemon juice
What size pan do I need?
Bake this strawberry cobbler in an 8X8 square pan. Or an 8-9 inch round pan. Or you can also use a 1 1/2 -2 quart baking dish. Any bigger pan that those sizes will make your strawberry layer too thin.
Can I use frozen strawberries in this cobbler?
You can. I have not done it but just simply substitute frozen sliced strawberries for the fresh sliced strawberries. Keep them frozen until ready to use. Measure them straight into the pan for best results.
Why is my cobbler runny?
This cobbler DOES get thick as it cools. When it’s fresh and hot the juices are flowing but as it cools it will thicken up. When fully cold the berries and juices will get thick.
