Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground cinnamon
  • Grated rind of 1 lemon
  • 4 cups (1 L) quartered strawberries or 20 oz (600 g) unsweetened frozen strawberries
  • 2 cups (500 mL) chopped apple (about 3 apples)
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice
  • Topping
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) cold butter cut in small bits
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Milk soured* or buttermilk

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).

In medium bowl, mix together sugar, flour, cinnamon and lemon rind. Add strawberries, apple and lemon juice; toss to coat. Spoon into 13 x 9 inch (33 x 23 cm) baking dish or casserole; bake for 10 min.

Topping

: Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; using fingers or pastry blender, cut in butter until crumbly. Using fork, stir in milk just until blended. Spoon over fruit, covering completely. Bake for 40 min or until golden and bubbling.

Variation: Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler:

Increase sugar in fruit mixture to 3/4 cup (180 mL). Substitute 4 cups (1 L) coarsely chopped rhubarb for apples. Reduce strawberries to 3 cups (750 mL).

Tips

*You can replace buttermilk by sour milk or yogurt. To make sour milk, add 1 tbsp (15 mL) of white vinegar (or lemon juice) to 1 cup (250 mL) milk.

Healthy Eating Tip: Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and contain fibre. One cup (250 mL) of sliced strawberries has only about 50 calories.
