This strawberry dump cobbler recipe will be the most unique cobblers you will ever try. Rather than having dolloped biscuits on top, this strawberry recipe consists of a loose batter that is poured overtop. The batter ends up baking into a thin cake with the fresh strawberries. Cobbler recipes are most popular in the southern United States and consist of a stewed fruit layer topped with dumplings or biscuits. English settlers the United States weren’t able to prepare their traditional suet puddings because they didn’t have access to the proper cooking tools or ingredients. As such, they started topping their fruit fillings with biscuits or dumplings instead. The best thing about cobbler recipes is it can be a base for any variety of fruit that needs to get used up quickly. This fact makes the summer a particularly good time to prepare this dessert because that is when strawberries are at their best. Don’t worry if you don’t have access to the freshest strawberries around; frozen strawberries will work well in this summery dessert leaving it accessible to you all year round.

Cobblers are such easy desserts that they can be prepared any night of the week. They involve staple pantry ingredients, like flour, sugar, and milk, and require very little technical expertise. If you want to get your kids in the kitchen, this dessert would be an excellent place for them to start, since it requires just a little mixing and strawberry slicing. Having kids help with this no-fail dessert recipe will teach them some knife skills for hulling strawberries, as well as the method for measuring dry ingredients. The best method for measuring flour is to use the scoop and sweep method. This involves scooping the flour into the measuring cup and leveling off with a knife. The correct method for trimming strawberries will help you save as much of the strawberry flesh as possible. The key is to use a sharp paring knife to remove the green on the berry. Since this may be dangerous for children, an efficient way would be inserting a straw through the bottom of the strawberry up to the top green part. The kids will love the process of learning how to bake, as well as the finished results.

The most spectacular component to this strawberry dessert recipe is the fact that it contains cream cheese. Cream cheese is not an ingredient found in traditional cobbler recipes, but the tanginess is a welcome pairing to the sweet berries. This dessert would be perfect for when you need to make a dessert, but have to appeal to multiple people, since it is like a cobbler and strawberry cheesecake recipe in one. Strawberries don’t have to be the fruit component, either; blueberries, raspberries or peaches would be delicious when they are in season and at their best. However you choose to prepare this sweet recipe, it will be excellent served warm with a dollop of vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream.
