How to Make Old Fashioned Strawberry Cobbler (Step-by-Step)

Homemade strawberry cobbler really is one of the easiest strawberry desserts you can make because it comes together quickly with just a few simple ingredients.

Below I’ve included all the ingredients and recommended kitchen tools that you’ll need to make this easy strawberry cobbler.

 

Strawberry Cobbler Ingredients:
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Self Rising Flour
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Milk
  • Butter (Unsalted)
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Lemon Juice or Orange Juice
Recommended Kitchen Tools:

 

Step 1: Prepare Strawberries for Strawberry Cobbler

To make your strawberry cobbler you’ll first need to prepare your strawberries by washing them, de-stemming, and cutting them with a paring knife.

I prefer smaller more bite-size pieces of strawberry in my cobbler so I like to dice them into quarters, but you can leave the strawberries whole or slice them in half, if preferred.

Step 2: Combine with Sugar & Lemon Juice

After cutting your strawberries you will place them in a mixing bowl with 1/3 cup of granulated sugar and 2 tbsp of either fresh lemon juice or orange juice, and gently stir together until combined.

You don’t have to stir it long, just long enough that the strawberries are evenly coated in the sugar.

Once combined together it will be a syrup-like mixture.

*To ensure your cobbler isn’t mushy or runny, I recommend draining off some of the excess strawberry syrup liquid before adding on top of your cobbler batter.

 

Step 3: Make Cobbler Cake Batter

Next prepare your cobbler cake batter by combining melted butter, sugar, vanilla extract, and warm milk in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until combined and then gently fold in your flour.

The batter will be similar to a muffin batter and just as you would do when making muffins – DO NOT OVERMIX.

It’s okay if there are a few lumps in the batter, stir until just combined.

 

Step 4: Pour in Pan and Bake

Add the batter into your prepared baking dish and top evenly with the prepared strawberries.

Don’t stir your strawberries into your batter just add them on top and let them bake as-is.

Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the cobber crust is a light golden brown.

Step 5: Let Cool & Serve

Let the strawberry cobbler cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes before serving warm.

Eat as is, or top with some vanilla ice cream (my favorite) or whipped cream.

It’s SO good and you’ll want to make it again and again!

  • Cook Time: 35 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 8-10 servings 1x
  • Category: Dessert
  • Method: Oven
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Units Scale

Strawberry Mixture

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, cleaned and diced
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice or orange juice

Cobbler Cake Batter

  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1/31/2 cup sugar (if strawberries are sweeter in season use 1/3 cup)
  • 1 cup whole milk, warm
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

  • Prepare strawberries by washing, de-stemming, and cutting strawberries with a paring knife. I prefer smaller more bite-size pieces of strawberry in my cobbler so I like to dice them into quarters, but you can leave the strawberries whole or slice them in half, if preferred.
  • Place cut strawberries in a mixing bowl with 1/3 cup sugar and fresh lemon juice (or orange juice) and gently stir until combined. You don’t have to stir it long, just long enough that the strawberries are evenly coated in sugar.
  • Once combined together it will be an almost-syrup like mixture. To ensure your cobbler isn’t mushy or runny, I recommend draining off some of the excess strawberry syrup liquid before adding on top of your cobbler batter.
  • Next, preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 casserole dish (or something similar) with melted butter or non-stick spray. I used an oval dish like this or you could even use a cast-iron.
  • In a large mixing bowl use a whisk to combine melted butter, sugar, milk that has been warmed for 30-45 seconds in the microwave, and vanilla extract. Once mixed, add in flour and gently stir until just combined. A few lumps are okay and you don’t want to overmix it.
  • Pour cobbler cake batter into prepared baking dish. Evenly top with strawberries and do not stir.
  • Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the cobbler crust is a light golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before serving warm.
  • If desired, top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!

Notes

  • Strawberry cobbler is best enjoyed fresh the same day, but leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Re-heat individual servings in the microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minute or until warm.
