Strawberry Banana Cobbler

On my quest to clean up the fridge I stumbled upon 2 eggs chilling in an 18 egg carton, 2 half sticks of butter, and some strawberries that no one was going to eat on their own anymore. Hmmm... glance over at fruit basket. Bananas. Strawberry Banana....??? Another awesome combination. I've also been wanting to make a cobbler for a while since I've never made one before and this blog is starting to become an excuse to make new things. I read a bunch of different recipes and came up with what I think is a pretty generic cobbler topping. I would say the only thing that stands out from mine is that I used more butter (go figure) than all those that I read and I added vanilla. I also forgot to measure stuff, I need to work on getting better at that. 

Anyways, I now present to you: Strawberry Banana Cobbler

Fruit Layer
I shouldn't even bother writing this part out, but here it goes anyway: a bowls worth of slightly wrinkly strawberries and two bananas, all sliced and mixed together with a few spoons of sugar and a few spoons of flour to keep it from all getting super soggy

Cobbler Topping
1 cup flour (the one thing I remember to measure)
1 stick of butter, cut into little pieces 
couple spoons of sugar 
a teaspoon-ish of baking power
a blob of milk (I used skim, don't think it matters, my guess it was around a 1/4 cup)
one egg (ugh still have one lingering in the fridge!)
a plop of vanilla 

Butter a baking dish really well and pour in the fruit mixture evenly. Mix all the cobbler topping ingredients together to make a dough, it will be very sticky. Place the dough in chunks over the fruit filling and bake at 350 until the golden, about 30 minutes.

Sooooooooooo yummy, just make sure to save some for your big brother so when he comes over he doesn't complain that he never gets to eat the stuff you're making and posting on your blog.  


  1. Looks yummy!

    Haha,...I knew it! "...this blog is starting to become an excuse to make new things."

  2. LOL yessssss. Have to add though, my mom didn't like this at all.

  3. MMM strawberry banana cobbler! YUM! I can't wait till fall when apples are in season. I love apple cobbler and crisps!

  4. According to my mom, it wasn't sweet enough. I suppose you could add more sugar, but I'm going to the beach in 2 weeks, I'm trying to somewhat watch what I'm eating!
