Strawberry Mixture

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries diced
  • 1/2-3/4 cup granulated sugar

Cobbler Crust

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk warm
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted buter melted


  • Preheat oven to 375. F
  • Grease a 1.8 liter casserole dish. (my oval corning ware dish was 11x8.5x2)
  • In a medium bowl, add strawberries and sugar.
  • Stir to coat strawberries in sugar and set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  • Add in milk, vanilla extract and melted butter.
  • Stir just until combined. A few lumps are ok so don't overdo it.
  • Pour batter evenly into dish.
  • Spoon strawberries evenly on top of batter. Do NOT stir.
  • Baked for 35-40 minutes or until golden. (may need to adjust time if using a differnet size dish)
  • Serve as is or with vanilla ice cream or frozen whipped cream.



Even though the strawberries were already sweet I was glad I added in the full amount of sugar. Strawberries can have a slightly bitter taste so it was perfect.
Any kind of berry can be used.
Be careful not to over stir batter too much. A few lumps is best.
Feel free to cut down on the sugar.
