It never occurred to me that I could bake a cobbler in my slow cooker until I saw some recipes and decided to try my favorite fruity dessert recipe.  It took a bit of experimenting, but the tasty results are “berry” well worth it.

Black and Blue Cobbler Recipe


Black and Blue Cobbler

1 cup flour

1 ½ cups sugar, divided

1 tsp. baking powder

¼ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. nutmeg (ground)

2 eggs, lightly beaten

2 Tbsp. milk

2 Tbsp. canola oil

2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

¾ cup water

1 tsp. grated orange peel

Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, optional


In a large bowl, combine the flour, ¾ cup sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Combine the eggs, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Spread the batter evenly onto the bottom of greased 5 quart slow cooker.

In a large saucepan, combine the berries, water, orange peel and remaining sugar; bring to a boil.  Remove from the heat; immediately pour over batter.  Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2 ½ hours or until a toothpick inserted into the batter comes out clean.

Turn cooker off.  Uncover and let stand for 30 minutes before serving.  Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.           6 servings
