What is Bisquick strawberry cobbler?
Bisquick strawberry cobbler is a dessert that has a fresh fruit layer and a biscuit-like topping. As you drop dollops of Bisquick batter on the fruit, it gives the dish a cobbled appearance when done baking.
Next to blueberries, strawberries are my all-time favorite berries, and this cobbler is one of my favorite recipes to make every year.
Strawberry cobbler with Bisquick comes together quickly and easily. The berries are mixed with lemon juice, vanilla, cornstarch, and a bit of sugar to create a wonderful strawberry sauce at the bottom of the dish.
And the Bisquick topping is so good too! The texture ranges somewhere between biscuits and cake. The interior is soft and cake-like, while the exterior has a crispy crust resembling a biscuit.

- Bisquick baking mix is the main ingredient in the cobbler batter. It’s made of flour, salt, baking powder, and a little shortening, giving the cobbler a soft, cake-like texture.
- Sugar: I like to sweeten the topping with granulated sugar and sprinkle some turbinado sugar on top before baking to create a beautiful golden brown, rustic-looking crust.
- Milk helps to bind the batter. I like whole milk, but you can use whatever milk you have available.
- Melted butter: I opted for unsalted butter in this recipe.
- Strawberries: Fresh, sun-ripened strawberries give the best taste, that’s sweet, fruity, and aromatic.
- Granulated sugar sweetens up the strawberries and gives the fruit filling a saucy, jam-like consistency.
- Cornstarch helps to thicken the cobbler filling.
- Vanilla extract: A splash of vanilla enhances the other flavors.
- Lemon juice + zest adds a bright note that helps to balance the sweetness of the berries and sugar.
Can I use frozen strawberries?
While I prefer fresh strawberries, you can also use frozen strawberries. Just note that frozen strawberries will add more liquid.
Simply set your strawberries in the refrigerator overnight to thaw. Then drain the excess liquid before using them for this Bisquick cobbler.
If you have a bounty of fresh strawberries, you can always freeze and use them later to make this yummy fruit dessert. Then you can bake this cobbler all year long!

Tips for success
Bisquick strawberry cobbler is so easy to whip up, and I have a few tips and tricks that will make this treat a hit with your family and friends!
- Prepare strawberries: Wash your berries thoroughly and then gently pat them dry with a tea towel or paper towel.
- Hull strawberries: Insert the tip of a small knife into the top of a strawberry at an angle. Then rotate the fruit until you can pull the stem out.
- Adjust the sugar: If your berries are not very sweet or juicy, increase the amount of sugar as you macerate the berries. If, by contrast, your berries are very sweet, reduce the sugar. You may only need a few tablespoons.
- Place the baking dish on a sheet pan: In case you are worried that the cobbler might bubble over, place a sheet pan on the oven rack under the baking dish.
- Cast-iron skillet: Feel free to prepare the cobbler in a cast-iron skillet instead of a ceramic dish.
- Cool before serving: Allow the cobbler to cool for a couple of minutes before serving. It gives the strawberry juice time to set up a little.
I like to spoon warm Bisquick strawberry cobbler into dessert bowls and then add a spoonful of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Talk about heavenly!
