About Mango Cobbler

Mango Cobbler is an easy and quick dessert recipe where ripe, juicy mangoes are cooked along with sugar, butter, vanilla, and cornstarch. This bubbly mixture is then topped with a crumbly cobbler topping made with flour and oats. It’s perfect for serving right out of the oven, topped with vanilla ice cream.

Mango cobbler has crispy and crumbly oats topping and gooey sweet fruit, making it irresistible. Serve a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top, and see how this simple dessert becomes your favorite with just one bite.

This super easy dessert can be prepared using fresh or frozen mangoes. I cooked the mangoes along with sugar and cornstarch so that they thicken up and the cobbler is not watery.

You can serve it as a dessert for house parties, weekend meals or to satisfy your sweet tooth after everyday meals.

For The Mango Mixture

To make the mango mixture, you will need fresh, ripe mangoes, granulated white sugar, unsalted butter, vanilla extract, and cornstarch.

Choose ripe and juicy mangoes to make this cobbler: Florida mangoes, Champagne mangoes, or Indian varieties like Alphonso or Kesar work great.

To check if the mango is ripe, gently press it. It should be slightly soft and give back a little. It should also smell fruity and sweet.

This dessert can be made using frozen mangoes, too. Thaw the frozen mango chunks before using them in the recipe.

Cornstarch is used for thickening the mixture.

Use a good quality vanilla extract, as it enhances the flavor and aroma of the mango mixture.

To make this dessert, you can use other fruits such as strawberries, peaches, apples, and blueberries instead of mango. You can also use a mix of different fruits.

For The Topping

The crumbly topping is made with all-purpose flour, rolled oats (old-fashioned oats), baking powder, granulated white sugar, ground cardamom, and cold unsalted butter.

A mixture of all-purpose flour and oats gives that perfect crispy top, and baking powders help it to rise.

I love how a little amount of ground cardamom adds so much flavor to this crusty topping. You can replace cardamom with ground cinnamon, too.

Make sure the butter is cold and cut into small cubes.

Make The Topping

Note – The small pieces of cold butter prevent gluten development. It makes the crust flaky and crumbly. If the butter is softened, the crust will become hard, cracker-like.

    I made this with frozen mango, strawberries & blueberries (thank you Costco!). I increased the sugar by 1/8 c. I did not have any rolled oats, but had some Strawberries & Cream Quaker oats which turned out GREAT as a substitute (a happy discovery!).

    This recipe has a great ratio of wet ingredients vs. dry. I enjoyed mine with a splash of half & half as I thought the ice cream might steal the cobbler’s thunder. Cheers!
