Are you honestly telling us you could resist a helping of this strawberry cobbler? 10 mins’ prep, 15 mins in the oven and it’s yours…  |  Photo by Toby Murphy, styling by Jules Mercer, recipe courtesy of Quivertree Publications

What you need (serves 4)

15g melted butter

2 cups (500g)

strawberries, hulled

60g unsalted butter, at room temperature

110g sugar

150g cake flour

125ml milk

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

65g sugar

125ml warm water

whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, to serve

What you do

Preheat the oven to 180°C

Coat the bottom of a 13 cm x 9 cm rectangular or large oval ovenproof dish with 15g melted butter (use a pastry brush if you have one)

Spread strawberries evenly on the bottom of the dish

Place dish on a lined baking sheet and set aside

In a medium bowl, mix 60g unsalted butter, 110g sugar, cake flour, milk, baking powder and vanilla extract together with a wooden spoon

Spoon batter over the fruit in the dish and spread evenly

Mix 65g sugar and warm water together

Pour evenly over the top of the batter. (This gives the cobbler a golden brown crust and makes the strawberries softer and sweeter)

Bake for 25–30 minutes, until topping is golden brown and fruit is bubbling

Enjoy warm as is, or with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream
