With rich brown sugar, gorgeous berries, and a delightfully crispy crust, Brown Sugar Strawberry Cobbler for Two is the perfect treat for sharing… or not!
Y’all know strawberries are, by far, my favorite berry to bake with. I’ll put those things in baked donuts and on top of brownies and in decadent frostings. I’ve even got two more strawberry recipes lined up this month from back when I bought a flat from the local FFA club.
The newest addition to the vault of strawberry recipes on the blog is this Brown Sugar Strawberry Cobbler for Two. I love the combination of strawberries and brown sugar, which is why this cobbler is one of my favorite desserts. I also love the way the cobbler batter and the melted butter bake up together to create a gorgeous light and perfectly-crunchy crust.
In my house, this is the kind of dessert meant to be enjoyed during those few hours after the kids are bed. Whether you want to share with your significant other is up to you.
Brown Sugar Strawberry Cobbler for Two
2 tbs butter
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
dash of salt
1 cup strawberries, sliced
2 tbs sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt the butter in a small cast iron skillet or other dish of a similar size (about 6 1/2 inches across). If the dish is stove top safe, you can melt the butter there; otherwise, use the preheating oven. Meanwhile, combine in a medium bowl the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, milk, vanilla, and salt. In a separate medium bowl, toss the strawberries with the sugar.
When butter is fully melted, drizzle the flour mixture over the top. Don’t stir the two components together. Layer the strawberries over the cobbler mixture and, again do not stir.
Bake the cobbler for 25-30 minutes, or until the rim is golden and the center is set. Serve warm (with ice cream!)
You could quadruple this recipe and cook it in a 9 x 13 dish.

This looks delicious! Next time I want to turn the oven on – I’m trying it!
You should! Because I know you’ll appreciate this: I often cut the sugar in half (half what goes into the cobbler and also what goes on the berries) and sub whole wheat flour. Still yummy!
