  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (adjust according to the sweetness of your strawberries)

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup cornmeal

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, for serving (optional)


1. Preheat your oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Prepare the strawberries: In a mixing bowl, combine the sliced strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Toss gently to coat the strawberries evenly. Let the mixture sit while you prepare the crust.

3. Make the cornmeal crust: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the cold cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Pour in the milk and stir until just combined. The dough will be slightly sticky.

4. Assemble the cobbler: Transfer the strawberry mixture into a 10-inch cast-iron skillet or a similar oven-safe skillet. Drop spoonfuls of the cornmeal dough over the strawberries, covering them as evenly as possible.

5. Bake: Place the skillet in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the strawberry filling is bubbling.

6. Serve: Allow the cobbler to cool slightly before serving. Serve warm, optionally topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

7. Enjoy: Dig in and enjoy the delightful combination of juicy strawberries and golden cornmeal crust!

This recipe should give you the perfect balance of crunchy, golden crust on top, and moist, juicy strawberries underneath. It's a wonderful dessert to share with friends and family, especially served warm with a scoop of ice cream on top. Let me know how it turns out for you!
