How to make strawberry cobbler

Next, mix the strawberries with corn starch and sugar and pour it into a deep oven safe dish. Now make the batter to top the simple cobbler with. I like my batter to be on the thicker side so it has a cake-y texture.
Top the strawberries with the batter and bake in the oven until golden brown and strawberries are bubbling. Serve this easy strawberry cobbler with a big scoop pf vanilla ice cream.

How to thicken the strawberry cobbler
I like a delicious homemade cobbler recipe that has a thickened filling. To thicken this cobbler, make sure the strawberries are not cut into small pieces. I usually just cut them into halves. And then mix the strawberries with two to three tablespoons of corn starch. Corn starch mixes with juicy strawberries and sugar makes the cobbler pretty thick and tasty.
Want to jazz things up in this strawberry cobbler recipe?
There are a few ways for you to jazz up the ingredients in this old fashioned cobbler recipe:
- Strawberry rhubarb cobbler: Add one cup rhubarb to the original strawberry cobbler recipe.
- Strawberry blueberry cobbler: Use ½ lb strawberries and ½ lb blueberries. You can also use thawed frozen fruit.
- Strawberry blackberry cobbler: Use ½ lb strawberries and ½ lb blackberries. Use an additional ½ tablespoon cornstarch.
It's best to eat the cobbler the same day you make it as it tastes fresh and the topping is cake-y and super tasty. When cobblers stay out for a while then they don't taste as fresh and flavorful as they do when they're fresh.
