I call this strawberry cobbler foolproof because I am not a good baker but this comes out perfectly every time. Probably due to the fact this super easy, cakey cobbler is inspired by the Pioneer Woman, but also because it’s simple and un-complicated. It’s easy to remember because it’s just 1-1-1-1-1:
1 stick of butter
1 cup milk
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 pint berries
Seriously, it’s that easy. The blackberry version with vanilla ice cream has been an absolute dessert staple in our house because it’s mind-blowingly delicious and because it always turns out amazing. This is less crumbley than traditional cobbler, and more cakey. The edges crisp up and become chewy and wonderful like the edges of brownies and it’s to die for.
With summer’s berry bounty, switch it up by trying strawberry cobbler! Equally delicious, and strawberries lend themselves to more ice cream options, (try coffee, mint chocolate chip, or cookie dough!) Honestly, any fruit would be fantastic in this simple cobbler base.
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 cup sugar, plus ¼ cup for sprinkling
- 1 cup Self-rising flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 pint strawberries, green tops removed and cut in half, (any fruit would work!)
- Ice cream, for serving, (vanilla is classic, but lots of flavors would be great!)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Melt the butter in a microwavable dish.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar and flour.
- Whisk in the milk, and then add the butter until it's all mixed and smooth.
- Butter a baking dish, and then pour the batter in.
- Wash and dry your berries, then add them evenly to the top of the batter.
- Sprinkle ¼ cup of sugar over the top.
- Bake for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. Serve hot with ice cream!
