A Summer Delight: Easy Strawberry Cobbler

.A Summer Delight Easy Strawberry Cobbler

Summer is synonymous with fresh, juicy berries, and what better way to celebrate the season than with a warm, delicious fruit cobbler? This recipe for Easy Strawberry Cobbler is the perfect answer. It's incredibly simple to make, requiring minimal ingredients and oven time. Plus, it's incredibly versatile! You can easily swap the strawberries for other seasonal fruits like blueberries, peaches, or cherries.


  • For the Sweet and Tangy Strawberry Filling:
    • 470 grams (approximately 16 ounces) diced fresh strawberries
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • For the Buttery Cake Topping:
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 3/4 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
    • 4 tablespoons melted butter


  1. Preheat for Perfection: Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). This ensures the cobbler bakes evenly and develops a beautiful golden brown top.
  2. Preparing the Strawberries: In a 2-quart ceramic baking dish, add the diced strawberries. They don't need to be perfectly uniform – a rustic chop works great!
  3. Sweet and Tangy Coating: In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. This mixture will create a sweet and slightly tart sauce that will enhance the flavor of the strawberries. Pour this mixture over the diced strawberries in the baking dish, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  4. A Moment of Rest: Set the strawberry mixture aside at room temperature for a short while. This allows the juices from the berries to mingle with the sauce, creating a more flavorful filling.
  5. Making the Cake Batter: In another medium mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients for the cake topping: sugar, all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder. Give it a good whisk to ensure everything is evenly distributed.
  6. Wet Ingredients Join the Party: Pour in the milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Using a whisk or a spoon, mix everything together until just combined. You don't want to overmix – a few lumps are perfectly fine!
  7. Batter Meets Berries: Pour the cake batter evenly over the strawberry mixture in the baking dish. The batter will spread and fill in the gaps between the berries.
  8. Baking to Golden Perfection: Place the baking dish with the cobbler in your preheated oven. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the top of the cake batter is golden brown. You can insert a toothpick into the center of the cobbler – if it comes out clean, it's done!
  9. Serving Warm is the Way to Go! Take the cobbler out of the oven and let it cool slightly on a wire rack before serving. This allows the filling to set a bit and prevents it from being too runny. Serve the Easy Strawberry Cobbler warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an extra decadent treat!


  • For a richer cake topping, use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar.
  • If your strawberries are very juicy, you can add an extra tablespoon of cornstarch to the sauce mixture.
  • This cobbler is also delicious with other fruits like blueberries, peaches, or cherries. Simply swap the strawberries for your chosen fruit and adjust the baking time as needed.
