Strawberry Cobbler for Two

It is a little slice of heaven. Sinful heaven

Because if we made strawberry cobbler for four we still wouldn’t have any leftovers.

Strawberry Cobbler

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, halved
  • 1 tsp cinnamon sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (or 1/4 cup regular milk)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar

Combine strawberries, honey, lemon juice and cinnamon sugar in a small bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder. Cut butter into flour mix, until crumbly. Add sugar and buttermilk or milk. Stir to incorporate. The mix will be wet, more of a drop biscuit or almost a cake batter consistency. Preheat oven to 400. Stir cornstarch into berries and divide berries evenly between two buttered 12-ounce dishes or a single two-quart casserole dish. Use a spoon to spread batter evenly over top. (It doesn’t have to be perfect.) Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired. Place baking dish on a cookie sheet lined with foil to catch any leaks. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until tops are golden. They will rise in the oven and fall somewhat and crack once they’re cooled.

    Ha, I would be totally the same, no matter how much I made I would eat it all! Looks great, I have been thinking cobbler too but it will have to be with winter fruit now.

  3. rsmacaalay says:

    Look at those flavours bursting out, mmmmm!

  4. Perfect and looks so tempting with that juice oozing out and just waiting to be eaten!

  5. Gah! I can’t wait to get strawberries from the farmers market now. The store-bought ones will have to do for another two weeks. This looks great!

    Yesterday I had a cranberry orange smoothie for dessert. Your dessert looks better. :D

  11. Oh yay, this looks great and you’re the only person besides me that I’ve seen make a straight strawberry cobbler/crisp without adding rhubarb or some other fruit! Your’s really is a cobbler, though, and one I’ll have to give a go while the strawberries are around. I have two pints in the fridge right now…hmmm.

  12. Two words: gooey goodness.

  13. Tandy says:

    Always a good reason to not make leftovers :)

  14. billpeeler says:

    I love everything about this recipe – this looks awesome, right up my alley!

  15. Eva Taylor says:

    When the temperatures are still a little chilly here in Toronto, a cobbler sounds like a very tasty way to end a meal. I love the colour, Greg, absolutely gorgeous, indeed.

  16. Strawberry heaven. :-) Mandy

  17. Very nice recipe with all healthy ingredients.

  18. Andrea says:

    Oh, I just want to dive into that dish!

  19. TasteFood says:

    So lovely. Love strawberries and cobblers, and two is just right.

  20. Kelly @ Inspired Edibles says:

    Looks ooey, gooey, gorgeous!

  21. zestybeandog says:

    Cobbler is one of my favorite things to make a dessert! I can’t think of a better way to use strawberries!

  22. Courtney says:

    Is it bad that I’d even settle for licking the dish??

  23. Karen says:

    Strawberry cobbler sounds great. I’m waiting from our summer strawberries to arrive.

  24. Kristy says:

    I’d have to make a cobbler for 16 to have a fighting chance in this house. :) Sooooooo good!

  25. All that syrupy strawberry juice… I want this so badly right now!

  26. theslowroasteditalian says:

    This looks amazing! Never had strawberry cobbler, but this is on my list for the summer!!!

  27. Sophie33 says:

    A delightful dessert which I would tottaly devour with my husband Peter! Yum!

  28. egg me on says:

    Ha, two? I could eat that all by myself. The crusty-cobbler topping looks great. And just look at the way the strawberries ooze down the side ………………..

  29. Looks like dangerous gooey goodness to me. :-)

  30. Amber says:

    Your strawberry cobbler looks amazing! Strawberries will soon be in season, so I’m bookmarking this recipe for about a month from now!

  31. Portion control is a hazy concept when desserts like this are involved, and really, it’s mostly fruit and milk, right? How bad can it be for you? ;-)

  32. Mmmm, looking forward to strawberry season already.

  33. Good thinking. I need to get on board with that type of baking. Make only what we SHOULD eat in one sitting. :)

  34. I love any kind of cobbler but blackberry and strawberry are favorites. This looks great.

  35. kat says:

    i love recipes that are just for two! this looks good!

  36. Jessica says:

    haha, before I had seen what you had written above the recipe, I was going to say that I’d make this as-is for myself. And with vanilla ice cream.
