Strawberry Cobbler is a sweet and tart dessert made up of strawberries and cake batter. There is no better way to bring spring back into your kitchen than whipping up this easy dessert!

Cobbler is one of those desserts that everyone raves about but is so easy to make. It looks so impressive with all the fresh fruit and buttery crumbly topping, but it’s just fresh fruit and a cake batter thrown in a baking dish and baked together!

I love any easy fruity desserts – try my Blueberry Croissant Bake for another one! So I just had to share this Strawberry Cobbler Recipe so everyone can see how easy and delicious it is.

What is the difference between a cobbler and a pie?

The biggest difference between a cobbler and a pie is the crust. A pie has a crust on the bottom, a filling, and usually some crust on the top. A cobbler is just a fruit and sugar mixture with no crust and a biscuit topping that is sweetened to be a more cakey biscuit. A cobbler is much easier and everyone will think it took you much longer than it actually did!

What do I need to get started?

  • All purpose flour.
  • Granulated sugar. The amount of sugar is completely for the biscuit topping – strawberries are such a sweet fruit and don’t need more sugar.
  • Baking powder. 
  • Whole milk.
  • Salted butter. I prefer using this to unsalted, for the flavor boost.
  • Strawberries. I used fresh strawberries, but frozen strawberries will work just as well – just let them thaw before using.

How to make Strawberry Cobbler

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and milk until the batter is smooth and totally lump-free.

Cut the butter into small cubes and place them into your baking dish, taking care to spread them out evenly. Bake until the butter has melted. This could take from 5 to 15 minutes depending on how small of chunks you cut and how evenly they were spread on the baking dish.

Remove the pan and pour the batter over the top of the melted butter. Scatter the sliced strawberries on top of the batter and bake.

The batter will rise in the oven above the strawberries to give it that nice crackly golden brown top – it will take about 45 minutes.

Storage and Make Ahead

To make this dessert ahead of time, make the batter up to 2 days in advance and store it in the fridge. When you are ready to make the strawberry cobbler, follow all remaining steps the same way.

You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Can I freeze the strawberry cobbler?

The cobbler can be stored for up to 3 months after you have baked it. Reheat directly from frozen.

Tips and Tricks

  • You can change out the strawberries for your favorite fruit – peach and blueberry cobbler are some of my favorites!
  • Try mixing in some blackberries and blueberries for a Triple Berry Cobbler!
  • Cobbler is traditionally made with buttermilk for the moistness, but since the strawberries are already so moist, I didn’t feel it was needed here.
  • Frozen fruit can be used in place of fresh but I always recommend using fresh – frozen fruit would need to be thawed and might turn the dish a bit mushy.

How to serve Strawberry Cobbler

I love serving my cobbler warm in a large bowl with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and topped with freshly whipped cream for the ultimate sweet treat!
