Ramekin Strawberry Cobbler ~ SUPER EASY!

Today I bought some ramekins- I didn’t have any, and found a set of 4 at TJ Maxx for only six dollars. So I got them, and then I had to figure out what on earth I wanted to do with them. I have been trying to figure out what to do with the leftover strawberries I had. I thought about making these Strawberry Cucpakes, but I wasn’t sure I had enough strawberries to make them. And, my dad just made a German Chocolate cake and told me that he didn’t want anymore cake in the house. I asked him what I could do with my strawberries, and he suggested doing something with my new ramekins.

My grandmother had this recipe she used to make easy cobblers- and he said I could do that in my little dishes. So I found a recipe online for strawberry pie filling and decided to use it as a guideline for making the strawberry part of the cobbler, since I already had the recipe for the cobbler part. This recipe was really simple and the product was incredibly delicious. I could only eat half of one because it was so rich and delicious. This is good with a dollop of whipped cream, too.

Strawberry Filling Ingredients

  • 1 lb strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8th teaspoon salt

Strawberry Filling Instructions

  1. Boil 1/2 cup of water in a small pot.
  2. Slice 1 cup of strawberries and add them to the pot of boiling water.
  3. Crush the strawberries in the pot of water using a potato masher.
  4. Allow it to simmer for a few minutes.
  5. Heat another pan while the strawberries are simmering.
  6. Pour the strawberry mixture into the warm pan. Add the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Continue to simmer until the mixture gets thick.
  7. After the mixture thickens, remove it from the heat.
  8. While waiting on this to cool, dice what is left of the strawberries. Put these sliced strawberries into 2 6oz ramekins.
  9. Pour the cooled strawberry mixture on top of the diced berries in the ramekins. Set to the side.

Breading Ingredients

  • 6 slices of bread
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 stick butter

Breading Directions

  1. Melt butter in the same pan you used for the strawberries.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in sugar and beaten egg.
  3. Tear the bread into small pieces and stir it into the butter/sugar/egg mixture.
  4. Cover the strawberry filling with the bread mixture.
  5. Bake the ramekins at 400° until the bread is golden brown.

  1. Ooh! I have ramekins that don’t get used near enough. Looks great!

  2. I’ve been researching more recipes for my ramekins. And they taste as good as they look- better, actually haha.

  3. My favorite picture is the one of the stick of butter… you just know that’s going to be good. Also, gonna show the wife, she’s on a strawberry kick.

    • I can’t wait to get a better camera. I do all my pictures with my iPhone because my digital camera is so old that my phone takes better pictures.

      And tell the wife if she has any good strawberry ideas to let me know. I plan to drown in them this summer.

  4. As soon as we move and I get my ramekins out of storage and get near a real store that sells strawberries I am making these. Probably several times… Thanks for sharing this.

  5. Big thumbs up to all of that!
