It’s so easy to make Raspberry Cobbler at home! Fresh, juicy raspberries topped with a sweet biscuit like topping. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delicious, light tasting, and fluffy cobbler dessert recipe.
Raspberry Cobbler Recipe
Fruit desserts like crisps, crumbles, and cobblers are some of my very favorite dessert recipes to make during the summertime with all the fresh fruit available. This Raspberry Cobbler has everything you could want! Warm, juicy fresh raspberries covered in a sweet biscuit topping, and then baked in butter.
Top each serving with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and you’re ready to go. The warm fruit + biscuit cobbler topping is so good paired with the cool and creamy ice cream. Or you can make homemade whipped cream for topping the cobbler with.
You only need 6 simple pantry staple baking ingredients to make this recipe!
- Salted Butter – You want to melt the butter in the microwave before adding it into the baking dish.
- All-Purpose Flour – A gluten-free flour can be used here if needed. I use unbleached all-purpose white flour.
- Granulated Sugar
- Whole Milk – Do not use a milk that is lower in fat than whole milk. For best results, use whole milk or even half & half.
- Baking Powder – Helps the cobbler rise and be fluffy & light.
- Fresh Raspberries – Be sure to wash these and pat them dry gently before using them. For best results, do not use frozen raspberries.
How To Make Homemade Raspberry Cobbler From Scratch
Learn how to make this easy raspberry cobbler recipe. And be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page for the full recipe and detailed instructions.
Step One : Melt the butter and pour it into an 8×8 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Step Two : In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, milk, and baking powder until combined well and no flour pockets remain. Pour this over the melted butter in the baking dish.
Step Three : Evenly scatter the raspberries on top of the batter. Do not stir them in. Just place them on top of the batter. As the cobbler bakes, the biscuit batter will rise and cook on top of the raspberries.
Step Four : Bake for 45-50 minutes. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
Tips For Success
Here are a few of my helpful tips that will make this recipe a success in your own kitchen.
- Use Fresh Raspberries : I do not recommend using frozen raspberries. They don’t give off as much sweet juice as the fresh ones do, which makes the final dish kind of drier. If you really must use frozen raspberries, then I would recommend that you let them thaw before using them in the recipe. But again, for best results, use fresh raspberries and not frozen.
- Whole Milk : The higher the fat content of the milk when baking, the better. I do not recommend using any milk that’s lower in fat than whole milk. If wanted, you can use half & half.
- Serve With Ice Cream : This is my #1 tip for any cobbler or fruit crisp recipe. Serve with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top of the cobbler. It instantly takes this recipe from good to ‘out-of-this-world-delicous’.
- Butter : The recipe calls for salted butter but you can use unsalted butter if that’s what you have. Just be sure to add some salt in with the baking powder. I would use about 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
Raspberry Cobbler FAQ’s
- Can I Freeze Cobbler?
- Yes you can freeze cobbler. Prepare and bake as directed. Let the cobbler cool to room temperature and then double wrap it in Saran Wrap and then tin foil. Store in the freezer for up to 2 months.
- When ready to serve, let the cobbler thaw in the fridge overnight.
- The cobbler topping might get soggy once it’s thawed so I would maybe recommend baking it for a short time to get the cobbler topping more crisp & soft. Plus, you probably want the cobbler warm for serving anyways.
- How To Store Leftovers of Cobbler
- Leftovers will keep well in the fridge, in an air-tight container, for up to 4 days.
- I just warm up leftovers in the microwave and then serve it with a scoop of ice cream.
- Serving Suggestions
- The only way to serve this cobbler is with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top. Trust me!
- You can also make some homemade whipped cream, or buy some canned spray whipped cream at the store.
