I have been making this cobbler for over twenty years. It's quick and easy which is the best part...besides the taste. I have been craving strawberry cobbler so I picked up a can of strawberry pie filing the last time I was in the store. I have made various flavors of the years but strawberry is my favorite.

This recipe makes a 9 x 13 dish but I usually make a half batch and bake in a skillet or and 8 x 8 pan.

Ingredients (9 x 13 dish)

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 large (21oz) can of fruit or pie filling
  • ¾ cup of milk
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • dash salt


  • Melt butter in the bottom of your baking dish (I just stick mine in the over while it is preheating).
  • In a separate dish mix milk, flour, sugar (1/cup), vanilla, and baking powder and pour over the melted butter. DO NOT STIR.
  • Pour fruit over butter. DO NOT STIR.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour

(For 8x8 dish)

If you are making a smaller batch simply half all of the ingredients and use 1 (15oz) can of fruit or pie filling. There is no exact proportion of fruit to batter so you can add as much or as little as you like. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
