Strawberry Cobber

Our finished strawberry cobbler.

I’m really not a sweets person, but I really do like eating cobblers made with fresh fruit in the summertime. A couple of our first posts were for cobblers that we made for 4th of July. ┬áThis time we tried a new version with strawberries that came out really great.

This recipe is simple because it’s mostly just 1-1-1. One stick of butter, one cup of sugar, one cup of milk, you get the idea. Easy to remember and easy to make but it comes out delicious every time. I have to say, the best part is the batter. The batter gets a

This recipe is easy to double for a larger cobbler, which is what we did last night to make sure we had enough for everyone at dinner and would have some left over for lunch today.

First, melt your butter and put it in your dish.

Next, pour your batter over the butter. Do not mix it together.

As you can see, the butter will come up around and through the batter but it is not mixed together.

The next thing to do is add the strawberries. A thick layer of fruit is best. Once again, don’t mix them. Just place them on top of the batter. They will naturally sink and the batter will fill in around them.

Red, White & Blue Cobbler

I just posted the peach cobbler recipe that is very popular in Central Texas over the summer. This is the recipe for the Strawberry-Blueberry Cobbler, which turns out red, white & blue. The main difference from peach cobbler is that there is no brown sugar or pecans on top.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour (the flour & baking powder can be exchanged for Bisquick)
  • 1 tablespoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 pint of blueberries
  • 1 pint of sliced strawberries

Instructions

Melt butter until brown. Pour in an 8-by-12 inch baking dish. Mix sugar, flour, baking powder and milk. Pour into melted butter. Do not stir. Cover top of batter with your fruit. Do not mix. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Passed Down Fredricksburg Cobbler

This recipe is a starting point for making cobblers. You can put just about any fruit in it so go experiment! A version of this recipe was in the Austin American-Statesman back in 2003 that we clipped and used. Over the years this clipping was lost. Now you can find it and similar variations online from many sources. Just remember, cobblers should be easy and fun to make. Any recipe that appears complicated is probably not worth it. We like to make cobblers throughout the year, but especially during the summer when the peaches are ripe. There’s nothing like a great peach cobbler with homemade vanilla ice cream. We also make this recipe with many other fruits. One of my favorites is the Red, White & Blue Cobbler. This cobbler has strawberries and blueberries and once it bakes, the cobbler makes looks very patriotic.
Also, Curt will sometimes substitute Bisquick for the flour and baking powder.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour (the flour & baking powder can be exchanged for Bisquick)
  • 1 tablespoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • at least 3 cups of peaches
  • 1/2 to 1 cup brown sugar for topping
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional

Instructions

Melt butter until brown. Pour in an 8-by-12 inch baking dish. Mix sugar, flour, baking powder and milk. Pour into melted butter. Do not stir. Cover top of batter with peaches. Do not mix. Cover top of peaches with brown sugar and chopped pecans (optional). Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
