Fresh Strawberry Cobbler is sweet and buttery with a tender biscuit-type crust. This is a classic comforting dessert you’ll want over and over again.
My mom brought me two gallons of fresh strawberries and two gallons of fresh blueberries from her garden. I have been having fun creating recipes with them. Plan to see berry recipes in the next couple of weeks. I hope you enjoy them!
I’ve been wanting to make a Fresh Strawberry Cobbler for a while now. I always wondered why Strawberry Cobbler wasn’t popular. We always had either Blackberry Cobblers or the ever-popular Peach Cobbler when I was growing up. I think everybody in the world knows Magic Peach Cobbler. I’ve been making it since I was wee little! It’s good and fast, but not want I wanted this time.
Fresh Strawberry Cobbler
Basically, the crust is a sweet biscuit. I used brown sugar to sweeten it slightly instead of granulated white sugar. The brown sugar adds an extra layer of flavor to this biscuit-type topping that plain sugar doesn’t give it. The oats also add a nice flavor and texture to the crust.
I thickened the strawberries using cornstarch to give the fruit body a sturdy topping. Strawberry anything has been a perennial favorite of mine. Growing up I always asked my mom to make me this Strawberry Cake for my birthday every year. Now, I feel bad asking her to make it so I make it for myself!
This Fresh Strawberry Cobbler is fabulous served hot with a scoop of good-quality vanilla ice cream. It’s also good plain and at room temperature. The strawberries are tart and slightly sweet.
