Strawberry Cobbler


The end of strawberry picking is upon us.

We've made the most of it with Strawberry Pie, Strawberry Ice Cream and even Strawberry Jam.  And I'm also a big fan of Cobblers. Not Crisps but Cobbler. And you never really see recipes for Strawberry Cobbler. You see peach, blueberry, blackberry and definitely apple but strawberry is a little more rare. Which is sad  because its probably my favorite fruit.

Coincidently enough we are also at the end of our vacation. And while I prepare myself for a busy week at work without wanting to drink a bottle of wine in the process let me leave you with this easy, and delicious recipe for Strawberry Cobbler.


Strawberry Cobbler (Adapted from Cooks.com)
1 qt. fresh strawberries
1/4 lb. butter
1 c. milk
1 c.self rising flour
1 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Whipped cream (optional)



Heat oven 400 degrees. Hull the strawberries. Melt butter in an 8x12 inch baking dish in preheated oven about 4 minutes. Remove dish from oven. Add milk, flour, sugar and cinnamon to the baking dish and stir until just mixed. Arrange strawberries, tips pointed up, on top of the batter. Bake cobbler in oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 8 servings.

  1. Something is wrong there would be a mess of strawberry on top of flour mixture in this order.

  2. Hmmm not exactly sure how you are reading this. The directions specifically say that you should Melt the butter then add the flour and milk, sugar and cinnamon then add the strawberries on top...Are you reading something different?

  5. As the cobbler bakes the strawberries should get soft and "melt" underneath the rising dough.

  6. To Divine Chef: This is the correct way to make a cobbler. The flour/biscuit mixture rises over the fruit as it bakes.
