Strawberry Cobbler

I bought a flat of beautiful strawberries the other day. I could just eat them all as is, but I decided to bake something wonderful with some of them.

A warm comforting Strawberry Cobbler… isn’t it purdy!

I love the warm tender fruit and the crisp fluffy biscuit like topping. It is like dessert heaven.

A little ice cream on top and you really have yourself a perfect summer treat!

What you need,

4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
¼ cup sugar
1½ tbsp. corn starch

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. sugar
1½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
¼ cup butter
¼ cup milk, I used 2%
1 large egg

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8x8 inch square baking dish.

In a bowl combine the strawberries, sugar and cornstarch. Toss gently to coat all the berries. Pour them into the prepared pan.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add the butter and using a fork cut it into the flour mixture until it forms shaggy dough.

In a cup combine the milk and egg and whisk to combine. Pour the mixture into the flour, mix until just combined, don’t over mix.

Dollop the topping onto the berries.  Try to spread it out all over the top.

Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the topping is light golden brown and cooked through and the strawberries and hot and bubbly.

Serve warm or cold with or without heavy cream or ice cream.
No matter how you eat it, I guarantee you will love it.

The tender fluffy biscuit topping is so delicious and the berries are so sweet and soft. I just love a good cobbler!

  1. It does look purdy! I always do fruit crisps, never cobbler, so I think I should try this for a change!
