Here’s what you’ll need to make it
There are two parts to this easy Strawberry Cobbler recipe: the strawberries and the biscuit crust. For the strawberry filling, you’ll need Strawberries, Vanilla Extract, Salt, Brown Sugar, and Cornstarch. For the crust, you’ll use All-purpose Flour, Baking Powder, Salt, Granulated Sugar, Unsalted Butter, and Buttermilk. You will also need some Coarse Sugar for sprinkling on top.
Substitutes and add-ins
- Substitute different fruit- This cobbler is delicious with most fruit, so if you don’t have any strawberries, you can sub blueberries, blackberries, or even make it a peach cobbler.
- Make it allergy-friendly- If you have allergies in the family, you can substitute gluten-free flour for AP flour, or use a plant-based butter in place of regular butter. Just ensure that your ratios are correct when substituting to get the right consistency.
- Add lime- Adding lime juice and zest will give your homemade cobbler a slightly tart-sweet flavor that is so refreshing!
