Ingredients Needed

  • Flour – all-purpose flour is best for cobbler
  • Butter – I always use unsalted butter, but salted butter can be substituted by omitting added salt.
  • Milk – Any kind of milk works (regular, low-fat or fat free, or even nondairy milk)
  • Chopped fresh strawberries or other fruit, I don’t recommend frozen fruit for this.

How to Make Strawberry Cobbler

  • Preheat: Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Combine ingredients: In a mixing bowl, stir flour, Splenda, melted butter, and milk together until well combined. Once mixed, the batter should look somewhat like pancake batter.
  • Assemble: Arrange the chopped strawberries in a pie dish (9 to 10 inches in size) and sprinkle with extra Splenda if you like. Then, pour your batter evenly over the arranged strawberries.
  • Bake: Bake the cobbler for twenty to thirty minutes at 350°F. You’ll know its done wen the batter is cooked through and golden brown.

Expert Tips

  • Serve it with vanilla ice cream


Does strawberry cobbler need to be refrigerated?

Yes, strawberry cobbler needs to be refrigerated.

Can strawberry cobbler be frozen?

Yes, strawberry cobbler can be frozen; that being said, freezing and reheating the cobbler will significantly change the texture of the cobbler. I recommend just eating the cobbler fresh.

  1. I love your site and recently came across this recipe when looking to use up a thing of strawberries fast. It’s great also because it uses pantry staples. It was so good and my kids keep raving about it!! I’m going to try with peaches next 😄. Just a note, I used regular sugar (so differed from original) and both times it took 35 mins to bake. Thanks again for being my fav. Food blog 😄😄
