Berry Skillet Cobbler
This Berry Skillet Cobbler contains fresh strawberries and juicy blueberries that are combined with a hint of sweetness and baked with a brown sugar topping. It’s easy to prepare and is bursting with fresh flavors!
One of my favorite summer treats just happens to involve fresh fruit. Considering that I visit my local farmer’s market on a weekly basis, I’m always stocking up on the good stuff. Strawberries, fresh corn, tomatoes, and blueberries often find its way into my basket. And I just keep on coming back for more!
And dare I mention the word “fall.”
Sorry, guys, but I just had to throw that in there. Fall means that the farmer’s markets will soon come to an end, which signals that winter is just around the horizon. Ok, so I definitely got too far ahead of myself on that one!
After all, I plan on living about 2.1 thousand miles away from the snowy midwest come the winter. Yep, Hawaii is calling my name! Only kidding…that’s just my dream that has yet to come true. But one day…
Let me back up a bit and let’s pretend that I didn’t mention fall or winter. K? Good. Let’s relish what’s left of this gorgeous summer we’ve been having and chow down on this Berry Skillet Cobbler. It’s the perfect summer dish that just screams warm weather, sunshine, and all things fresh and delicious.
This Berry Skillet Cobbler contains fresh strawberries and juicy blueberries that are combined with a hint of sweetness and baked with a brown sugar topping. It’s easy to prepare and is bursting with fresh flavors. Plus, you can have this dessert prepped and ready to eat in less than a half hour. And that’s a winner in my book!
Besides the deliciously sweet taste, this Berry Skillet Cobbler is baked in mini skillets. A
nd if you’ve been hanging around here long enough, you know that I’m a huge sucker for mini foods. They’re fun to make, even better to eat, and are just plain adorable! So I couldn’t pass up the chance to use my mini skillets for this cobbler recipe. It makes about eight (3.5 inch) mini skillet cobblers. But if you don’t have those on-hand, feel free to use a regular, 12 inch skillet or casserole dish.
So let’s get down to the recipe!
This Berry Skillet Cobbler is a breeze to prepare and contains just a few simple ingredients. My favorite part of this dish is the crunchy, flavorful topping. I have a gigantic weak spot for cobblers and crisps, so I usually double the luscious crust. This Berry Skillet Cobbler contains a brown sugar and cinnamon topping.
And the secret ingredient that takes this crust to a whole new level is almond extract. Instead of using vanilla, I swapped it out for almond. It gives the topping such an amazing flavor.
This cobbler also bakes up with a nice crust on the outside and soft on the inside. It’s also the perfect complement for the sweet strawberries and blueberries.
Simply combine some sliced strawberries and blueberries with some sugar and lemon juice. Place it into the bottom of the skillet and spread the brown sugar mixture on top. Within minutes, this Berry Skillet Cobbler is bubbling with flavor and ready to be devoured.
If you’re feeling adventurous (which I know you are!) add a generous helping of ice cream on top, grab a spoon, and dig in to this Berry Skillet Cobbler. Filled with fresh flavors and bursting with fruit, this is one dish that you’ll be making all year long!

For half a second, I really thought that you’d move to Hawaii. Too bad it’s not real! Ugh. I moved away from the Midwest 18 years ago to be in a warmer area of the country, but now I’ve acclimated and I want to go warmer.
Did you use little skillets? They look cute! And the cobbler looks incredible no matter what size it is. Want it with ice cream!
I wish I could move somewhere warm! I love every season in the midwest, except for winter! 🙂 Yes, these are mini skillets and I love them! Thanks for the kind words, Mir!

I’ve been so busy this summer, I’ve only made it to the farmer’s market ONCE!! Terrible!

Enjoy the summer while it lasts 🙂
