Strawberry Cobbler - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Strawberry Cobbler will become a favorite dessert recipe.  It is quick and easy to make and one your family and guests will love.  It reminds me of the old-time cobblers our grandmothers used to make. We love to go to the Farmers Market and get fresh strawberries and make this delicious cobbler.

Strawberry Cobbler Ingredients Needed:


Lemon juice


White granulated sugar


Red food coloring (Optional)

All-purpose flour

Baking powder




This easy cobbler is a great way to enjoy fresh strawberries. You can top it with ice cream or whipped topping for a real treat. If you love cobblers you will also love this old fashioned recipe for Deep Dish Blackberry Cobbler.

You could also make this using strawberry pie filling or make it using other fresh fruits.

    Could you use self rising flour instead of plainflour for the Strawberry Cobbler?

  2. This looks like a crust my grandmother use to make. I am going to try this.

  3. Can you use frozen strawberries? I have a lot in the freezer!!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      They should work ok, although I have not tried it, Buretta.

  4. do you think this would work with the tart cherries I have from my tree?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I think it would, Gary. You may have to add more sugar to the strawberries.

  5. The Southern Lady says:

    SO glad you enjoyed it!

  6. Louise Maney says:

    Any adjustments if I mix rhubarb with the strawberries?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I have not made it that way but I would still do it the same, Louise.
