Strawberry Cobbler Recipe
It’s no secret that my family LOVES strawberries. We wait all year for the Hood Strawberry season in Oregon. We visit our favorite berry picking spot & pick until we can’t pick anymore. This way we have plenty of strawberries leftover to freeze.
Like most of my recipes, this one came from a mistake. We make so many Berry Crisps at our house. Recently, I kept referring to the crisp as a cobbler. My daughter laughed & laughed. She then turned to me & said, what’s a cobbler?
Crunchy & Soft Topping
Immediately, we set out to make the Ultimate Strawberry Cobbler Recipe. Now, I’ve eaten my fair share of cobbers. often, the fruit can be so runny & the topping is too soft. No one wants a soft dumpling on top of their fruit, do they?
I’m over the moon to tell you this topping has a delicious crunch but is also soft. Even better, we had some leftovers. The next morning I just knew t would be a soggy mess, but no! It holds up! The topping is what makes this Strawberry Cobbler Recipe so delicious!
You Can Use Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
While fresh berries make this so easy to bake, you can use frozen in a pinch. When I use frozen berries, I double the cornstarch. Your berries will let loose some juices, so the cornstarch helps it thicken. I tend to have the berries be runnier rather than gel-like, so I err on the side of too little cornstarch.
Make All The Berry Cobbler
Yes, this is a Strawberry Cobbler Recipe, but mix it up! Grab those berries when they are in season & give it a go. Want to get fancy? How about Blackberries with lime zest? We use those flavors in this tasty red velvet cake. What about blueberries with lemon zest? Want to kick this one up a notch? Add cinnamon. Just have fun!
THE VERDICT – Strawberry Cobbler Recipe
I can’t wait to put this Strawberry Cobbler Recipe to good use this summer season. The strawberries are so tasty with this perfect & classic topping! This is a new family favorite!
