Has your mom ever called you and said, “Hi! Can you make a cobbler for tomorrow’s party? Thanks! Bye!” That was the conversation I had with my mom this morning. Seriously. I’m heading over to my parent’s farm tomorrow to attend my mom’s garden club show and fundraiser. And apparently they need more silent auction prizes, so my mom thought I could just whip up a berry cobbler to bring over. Ohhhhh moms :)
So that’s literally what I did today. I whipped up the easiest and fastest strawberry cobbler recipe I had on hand. No fuss, no complex ingredients, just the standard butter, sugar and flour. But of course I couldn’t let it be that simple, so I added shredded coconut and chopped walnuts for a little extra crunch.
Do you have a favorite go-to berry cobbler recipe? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
Ingredients (serves 10)
For the filling:
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup water
3 cups California Giant strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 tablespoons butter, diced
For the topping:
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
½ cup chopped walnuts
3 tablespoons butter
½ cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup California Giant strawberries, whole, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a pie plate (or any 2 quart baking dish you have on hand).
In a pan, over medium heat, combine sugar, cornstarch and water, until thick. Add strawberries and remove from heat. Pour mixture into baking dish. Top with two tablespoons of butter.
For the topping, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, coconut and walnuts in a bowl. Cut in the three tablespoons of butter. Stir in the whipping cream. Spoon mixture, in clumps, on top of strawberries. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until berries are bubbly and topping is browned.
When cobbler is cool, arrange whole strawberries on top.
