Scrumptious Strawberry Cobbler

I treated myself this weekend.  Yes, I treated myself to one of my absolute, absolute favorite treats ... fresh-picked strawberries.  Not strawberries from the grocery store ~ strawberries fresh from the local fields!  When it comes to berries, there's just nothing better.

And then I came home and treated myself some more ... with scrumptious strawberry cobbler.  Made with those sweet, juicy, fresh-from-the-field strawberries.  Sooooo good ... and soooooooo easy.

The recipe for this scrumptious cobbler is from a dear friend of mine.  Last week, she let me borrow her desserts recipe folder ... and I, of course, was thrilled to look through it!  'Cause I need another recipe like I need a hole in my head, you know.  But recipes are an addiction for me, and I can never have enough of them.

And people's personal folders are the best recipe collections.  All their favorites.  Tried and true.

Well, tucked into the very bottom of a plastic sleeve in the folder, hand-scribbled on a piece of old accountant's paper, with just the ingredients list and a couple of cryptic direction notes, was the recipe for this strawberry cobbler.

I had to try it.  'Cause anything cryptically scribbled down on an old sheet of grab-whatever-you-have-at-hand paper simply has to be good.

And, oh it is.

To get all this scrumptious yummy-ness, simply thickly slice some fresh strawberries into a baking dish, toss them with a bit of sugar, and dot them with pieces of softened butter ...


Then mix up a simple batter of self-rising flour, sugar, and milk and pour it over the sweetened berries.


Pop the pan in the oven and give it a good bake until the cobbler is lightly golden-browned and the berries are juicy and bubbly.


Mmmmmm ... don't those berries look a-mazing??

So go grab yourself some fresh strawberries and dig in to a scrumptious strawberry cobbler!  Believe me, your taste buds will thank you.  In a huge way.

Strawberry Cobbler
Source:  Adapted from a family recipe from my friend Jennie

Ingredients
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 3 T. granulated sugar
  • 2 T. butter, softened
  • 1 c. self-rising flour
  • 3/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 c. milk
Directions
  1. Clean strawberries and slice into thick slices (for small berries, cut them in half). Place sliced strawberries in a 9x9-inch glass baking dish coated with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle sliced strawberries with the 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar, toss to coat with the sugar, and dot the berries with small pieces of the softened butter.
  2. In a bowl, mix the self-rising flour, 3/4 cups of granulated sugar, and milk until just combined {seriously, mix until the flour has just barely gotten all wet ~ if you mix it too much, the cobbler will turn out a tad rubbery}. Pour batter over the strawberries.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour until lightly golden browned and the berries are bubbly.
Enjoy!

  2. Looks delicious! If I don't have self-rising flour on hand, is there a combination of all-purpose flour and baking powder/soda I can use?

    1. Hi, Kate! Yes, you can 'make your own' self-rising flour. According to the source I looked at, for 1 cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/3 tsp. baking powder and 1/3 tsp. salt ... then you'll have a similar mix to self-rising flour. Here's the source I referenced ... http://www.food.com/recipe/homemade-self-rising-flour-substitute-29318?scaleto=1&mode=null&st=true
      Enjoy!!

  5. I love strawberries and I love cobbler but for some goofy reason I never put the two together! I make a very similar recipe with peaches all summer long. This is a wonderful idea to get cobbler season going! Thank you. :)

  19. Look at you go! Being pinned like crazy. I pinned it myself. I like the way you explained it and it looks like something I could make because unlike you, the kitchen is not my playground! It is my husband's playground, though!
