Ok, who loves strawberry recipes? 🙋♀️
I can’t get enough of them!
Some of my best memories were helping my mom pick the strawberries in her strawberry patch. That patch was her pride and joy.
And boy howdy, did we reap the benefits. She was the BEST cook ever (everyone says that about their mother), but mine really was. 😁
Anything she baked with those fresh, out-of-the-garden strawberries was always incredible.
If you have a strawberry patch, you know exactly what I am talking about. So what do you do with the huge yield of fresh berries in your garden during strawberry season? That’s right……make THIS easy strawberry cobbler!
You will love how incredibly simple and easy this recipe is and how quickly you can whip up a batch with all those fresh berries. It’s different from my Strawberry Crumble Dessert but just as delicious!
And it’s definitely one of my favorite strawberry recipes!
It is a perfect dish to take to a potluck or family gathering. Definitely the ideal dessert for any summer evening!

How To Make Homemade Strawberry Cobbler
Like many fruit desserts, this is a great recipe because it’s SO easy!
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Thoroughly wash the strawberries, remove the tops off the strawberries, and slice them.
Using a 9 x 9 baking dish, place a stick of butter in it and melt it in the microwave.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, and milk. Now pour the flour mixture (also known as the cobbler topping because it’ll rise up around the strawberries) into the baking dish over top of melted butter.
Place the strawberry mixture on top of the batter.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve this delicious recipe immediately, or let it cool based on your preference!
Fresh Strawberry Cobbler Recipe Notes And Tips
- Toss a little extra sugar on top of the strawberries before adding them to the top of the dry ingredients to help bring out a little extra sweetness in the berries.
- If you do not have self-rising flour, you can make your own if you have all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. I do this myself, regularly! Create your own self-rising flour by adding 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt to each cup of all-purpose flour.
- When shopping for fresh strawberries, look for light-colored seeds on the berries. If the seeds are dark brown and dried up, the strawberries will not be as fresh as you may like.
- Finish off the cobbler by sprinkling a little bit of course sugar on top of the cobbler before baking.
- If you want to add a little more depth of flavor, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the flour mixture before adding the strawberry filling.
Variations Of Strawberry Cobbler To Try
- Transform this simple recipe into a variety of fruit cobblers by using your favorite fruit such as peaches, raspberries, mixed berries, apples, rhubarb, cherries, or pears. How about blueberry cobbler? Yum!
- Bake this cobbler in a 9-inch cast-iron skillet especially if you love baking in cast iron or do not have a 9×9 baking dish. You could also bake it in a bowl.
- As is, this recipe makes a sweet cobbler. However, if you want this easy strawberry cobbler recipe to be more tart, simply reduce the amount of sugar or add just a little bit of lemon juice.
- Who doesn’t love ice cream with their fresh-out-of-the-oven cobbler? Don’t be afraid to add a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
- A dollop of whipped cream would be a yummy twist as a topping for your warm cobbler.
Easy Strawberry Cobbler FAQs
Cold butter is ideal when making baked goods that you want to have a crisp crust (like cobbler!).
I have not tried using frozen strawberries but you can certainly try and see how it works. I think the frozen strawberries will contain too much water and will be too watery, even after your cobbler bakes.
This strawberry cobbler will keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days if kept in an air-tight or covered container.
Absolutely, you can! I would recommend that you wrap it well, first in plastic and then a couple of layers of foil. This will help keep extra moisture out during the time you have it frozen.
The cobbler will freeze and keep nicely for up to 5 – 6 months.
Honestly, I would not. I would bake it right after assembly. The cobbler will keep nicely in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
The Best Way To Reheat The Strawberry Cobbler
Place the baking dish in a pre-heated oven on the middle rack for about 30 – 40 minutes.
If you are reheating a single portion, reheat in the oven for approximately 10 – 15 minutes.
