When we think of slow cooker recipes generally familiar, savory dishes like beef stews or bean chilis come to mind but what about dessert? My berry cobbler recipe will convince you that sweets and slow cookers are a case of opposites that attract! Baking this cobbler recipe in a slow cooker yields a richer, creamier pastry than a conventional oven and brings out the sugary sweetness of these mixed berries. Top off your berry cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy this classic summer dessert.
Yields: 4-6 Servings
- 2½ cups all purpose flour, divided
- 1¼ cups sugar, divided
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 4 tablespoons canola oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups fresh berries (blueberries, strawberries and/or raspberries)
- Serve with vanilla ice cream
- In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. Then add the eggs, milk and oil. Stir to combine.
- Prepare the slow cook pot by applying a thin layer of vegetable oil. Transfer mixture to pot and lightly tap sides to evenly spread.
- In a separate bowl, combine the remaining flour, sugar and salt. Add berries and toss to coat. Spoon berry mixture equally on top of batter.
- Place lid on cooker and lock. SLOW COOK for 2 hours.
- When ready, removed lid and let cool for 10 minutes. Spoon into bowls and top with ice cream.
