Fruit cobbler with fresh or frozen berries
Sweet, tart and tangy strawberry blueberry cobblers are perfect to make as a patriotic dessert for holidays. It’s always a big hit whenever I serve it for Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day barbecues and potlucks.
You can use either fresh or frozen berries, or a combination, to make this delicious summer-inspired dish any time of the year!
Ingredients for the best strawberry and blueberry cobbler recipe
The two simple key components for making this red white and blue dessert recipe are the fruit filling and fluffy biscuit topping.
To make the blueberry strawberry cobbler filling you need:
- corn starch
- lemon juice
You can use either fresh strawberries and blueberries or frozen, or a combination of the two. If you use frozen berries just be sure to thaw and drain them first. I suggest defrosting them in a colander to help remove most of the moisture.
For the scratch-made biscuit topping you need:
- self-rising flour
TFN’s Tip: You can easily make your own self-rising flour in a large batch and keep it on hand whenever needed. In a container with a lid combine 4 cups of flour, 2 tablespoons of baking powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Mix well to combine and keep stored at room temperature for up to 6 months.
How to make this easy cobbler with strawberries and blueberries
Cobblers are one of the easiest dessert recipes to make. From start to finish this patriotic dessert takes less than an hour. It comes together in 5 minutes with these 4 simple steps:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Meanwhile, stir together the strawberries, blueberries, cornstarch, 1 cup of sugar, and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Pour the mixture into the bottom of a casserole dish.
Drop the biscuit dough with a large spoon and press lightly to partially submerge them into the fruit cobbler mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes until the filling is bubbling and the biscuits are golden.
Let the blueberry and strawberry cobbler rest for at least 20 minutes before using a large spoon to serve with your favorite cobbler toppings.
Strawberry Blueberry Cobbler Recipe variations and substitutions
- Whole milk can be swapped with 2% milk, but not skim milk or non-fat milk.. The fat is what makes the biscuits rise perfectly with just the right fluffy, tender texture. Get more tips for making the best easy Drop Biscuits with Self Rising Flour.
- We made this a red white and blue dessert with strawberries, blueberries, and vanilla ice cream. However, you can certainly prepare as a delicious fruit cobbler with just blueberries or strawberries (the recipes are linked). And if you don’t want to include ice cream, no problem: Strawberry and blueberry cobbler still makes a wonderful patriotic dessert dish!
- For a star shaped biscuit topping, use my easy 3 Ingredient biscuits and use star shaped biscuit cutter for a patriotic dessert.
- Swap the sugar in this recipe 1:1 with Splenda baking mix sugar, if you like. If you don’t have Splenda baking sugar, you can use a blend of 1/2 Splenda and 1/2 sugar. But do not use just regular Splenda to make fruit cobbler as it won’t properly thicken the fruit.
- Make this a gluten-free fruit cobbler recipe by swapping self-rising flour with your favorite GF-friendly baking mix.
