Strawberry Cobbler Ingredients

strawberry cobbler raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

For the Filling

  • 8 cups of fresh strawberries, halved or quartered
  • ½ cup of granulated sugar
  • ½ cup of instant tapioca
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice

For the Topping

  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • ⅓ cup of granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup of light brown sugar
  • ½ cup of salted butter, cold and cubed
  • ⅔ cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of coarse decorating sugar, optional

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

STRAWBERRIES: You can use many types of fresh fruit for this easy cobbler recipe. To substitute for the strawberries, you can use any other type of berry, like raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries. You can also mix your fruits together.

HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM: Use milk and butter as a great substitute for heavy whipping cream. Combine ¼ cup of melted butter with ¾ cup of milk and mix them together to make 1 cup of heavy cream.

How To Make This Strawberry Cobbler Recipe

STEP ONE: To start, preheat the oven to 375°F and butter a glass 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Set it aside.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Rinse and air dry the strawberries before adding them to the cobbler.

STEP TWO: Next, combine the strawberries, sugar, tapioca, and lemon juice. Stir the ingredients together and spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish. 

PRO TIP:

Use instant tapioca to thicken the cobbler.

STEP THREE: In a separate bowl, prepare the strawberry cobbler topping. To do this, combine flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Next, cut cold butter into the dry ingredients using a fork or pastry blender until the mixture forms small, pea-sized pieces.

PRO TIP:

Make sure your butter is really cold. Take it out of the fridge right before you begin this process.

STEP SIX: Sprinkle the coarse sugar over the cobbler if desired.

STEP SEVEN: Bake your cobbler in the preheated oven for about 45 to 55 minutes until the strawberry filling is bubbling, not just around the edge, but in the center as well. The topping should be browned and baked through.

PRO TIP:

Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your cobbler at the lower end of the recommended baking time.
