Old-Fashioned Strawberry Cobbler #Recipe from @PegCochran

Looks like it's strawberry week here on Mystery Lovers' Kitchen!  They are so bountiful right now and I love the scent when I walk by the stack of containers in the grocery store.

This recipe is super easy and really lets the fruit shine.  We added a dollop of whipped cream, and it was delicious.  The recipe is courtesy of


4 cups strawberries sliced (one large container)
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup (half a stick) butter, cut into cubes

Pre-heat oven to 375.

Spread the sliced strawberries in a square 8x8 pan (spray with non-stick spray)

Mix dry ingredients--flour, baking powder and sugar.   Add the beaten egg and mix with a fork until the egg is incorporated and the mixture looks crumbly.

Spread this mixture over the berries in the pan.

Dot with butter cubes (you can be as OCD as you want about lining up the cubes of butter)

Bake for approximately 45 minutes (depending on how hot your oven is) and let cool if you can wait!

Top with whipped cream if desired and ENJOY!

And speaking of berries...Berried Secrets, first in my brand new Cranberry Cove series, is coming out on August 4!  I'm giving away an ARC (Advance Reader Copy) on my Facebook page and the contest ends at midnight on Sunday so hurry over!

  1. The strawberry cobbler looks delicious! Thank you for sharing the recipe. Congrats on Buried Secrets coming out next month! (I entered the contest on your Facebook page - :D )

  2. You cannot go wrong with strawberries, sugar and butter. Wonder if my market will have any strawberries? Or the local farmers market, maybe. Looking forward to the new book, since I live in cranberry country.

    1. Sheila, our market still has strawberries and now they are probably local. Summer is such a wonderful time--melons, berries, fresh corn...wish it lasted longer!

  3. I have a love/hate relationship with you ladies. I love your books and all, but I hate all these yummy looking dishes you keep posting, when I don't have the ingredients to make em. ;) I'm cooking/baking challenged, and don't keep much in the cupboards, so I always have to go to the grocery store anytime I see a recipe I want to try. I don't even have eggs in the fridge right now! lol

    1. This is super easy--even if you don't bake much. That's what I like about it!

  4. I haven enjoyed peach, blueberry, and blackberry cobblers, but never a strawberry one. I'll have to rectify that situation!

  5. Nicely done. I like that the butter gets put on top, not cut into the dry ingredients.
    Easy peasy

    1. Yes, that is different and makes it a lot easier!

  6. So delicious and easy. Definitely more strawberries for me.


  7. Bet you could do that with just about any fruit!

  8. My husband made this for dessert last night using the last of our strawberries that we had. It was so delicious last night that I had a bite or two with my coffee this morning. Thank you.

  9. I think even I can make this strawberry cobbler.

  10. do you use self rising flour or reg all purpose
