Easy and comforting dessert on-the-go, is always the Cherry Cobbler, made with fresh sweet cherries.



Cherry cobbler recipe is easy to make when you crave for a warm dessert, as it's very simple with fresh fruit filling and buttery biscuit-like topping.


What type of cherries works best for cobbler? I found the fresh sweet cherries which were perfect for the cherry filling, mostly in the USA you will get Bing, Brooks, Coral or Reinier cherries, which would work well for any kind of cherry filling recipe. 

Canned cherries have a lot of juice which will make it difficult for the cobbler to hold well together. So it's better to use fresh cherries.

You can use any sweet cherry variety you find. Even a combination of some sweet and tart cherries work, but then you will have to increase the quantity of sugar.

You will find more information about cherries in this article.

Cherry Cobbler

Cherry cobbler can be made from fresh cherries or frozen cherries too. 

If you want to make a store fresh cherries, then store the cherries with stem, washed, dry well,  in a Ziploc in the refrigerator.
If you are planning to freeze the cherries then remove the stem, pit them, make them dry and store in a Ziploc in the freezer.


 Ingredients for Fresh Cherry Cobbler:

  • Fresh Pitted Cherries (For the cherry filling):  Use the fresh sweet cherries available near you. Ideally, Bing cherries are the best as they are very sweet but if you can't find them then use any sweet cherry variety you find. 
  • Even a combination of some sweet and tart cherries work, but then you will have to increase the quantity of sugar.
  • Cook the cherries with salt, sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch.

  • But the topping recipe shared by me is very easy to make, so do try that! This needs flour, milk, sugar, salt, milk, and baking powder - a few basic ingredients, that's all!

How to store homemade cherry cobbler?

If you want to refrigerate then either place the dish/pan covered with a plastic wrap or aluminum foil in refrigerator for a week.
When you want to serve, then warm up the cherry cobbler, heat in the oven till the cobbler is heated thoroughly.

If you are planning to freeze the cobbler then cover the pan with ziplock and further with aluminum foil to avoid the freeze burn and it stays good for a month.

When you have to serve the cobbler, then to warm up the cherry cobbler, heat the cobbler in the oven till it's heated all the way through.



How to serve cherry cobbler?

The best match of the cherry cobbler is by serving, a bowl of warm cheery cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

You can optionally add some caramel, fresh pitted cherries as you wish to make it look good.



Tips to make the best classic cherry cobbler:


  • Instead of baking, you can instead use a cast iron pan/skillet which is oven-safe to make this dish.
  • The baking time varies from oven to oven, or as per the quantity of filling and batter used to make the recipe.
  • Closely watch the pan/dish when baking to avoid over baking the dish and top of cobbler getting burned.
  • To make the process easier, use a cherry pitter. That makes the process very simple.
  • You can use a combination of sweet and sour cherries to make the filling, but then remember to add extra sugar to handle that tartness.
  • You can use Bisquick or any cake mix to make the topping too. But the biscuit topping recipe shared by me is very easy and buttery.
  • You can store the cherry cobbler refrigerated for a week. Cover it well with aluminum foil once it has cooled completely. To freeze it cover it well with aluminum foil and then in a Ziploc. It stays good for a month.
  • To reheat cobbler, heat it in microwave or oven till it's heated through.
