Forget dinner– let’s skip straight to dessert. What could possibly be better than dumping everything in the crock pot and having your entire house filled with the glorious, sweet, satisfying smell of freshly baked dessert?! Cooking dessert in the crock pot requires a little more attention to detail than the normal dump-and-go meal prep, but I think you’ll really like this recipe. In all honesty, it still only took me 6 minutes from start to finish to get everything into the crock pot. Since this is a slow cooking method, you won’t dry out or burn the edges of your tasty treat like you might in the regular oven. Plus, it is way better to use the crock pot for a few hours than to heat up the entire house with conventional baking.
This cobbler recipe can also be made using a variety of other fruits. Go for what is in season, grown locally or on sale in the freezer section; I would suggest trying cherries, peaches, apples, mixed berries or maybe some ripe pears. It you want this dish to be even more divine, throw in a 1/2 c. of butterscotch morsels or chocolate chips with the top layer. Enjoy!
1 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
2 t. vanilla
2 t. butter, melted
1/2 c. half and half or milk
16 oz. fresh or frozen blueberries
1 c. quick oats
1/3 c. flour
2 t. melted butter
1/2 t. cinnamon
2 T. brown sugar
Spray the entire crock pot with a non-stick spray. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Add the melted butter and half and half. Dump in blueberries and stir well. Pour into crock pot. Then, in another separate bowl, cut together the topping ingredients. Sprinkle topping on top of mixture already in crock pot and DO NOT MIX. Cook 4 hours on low or 2 hours on high.

A picture would have been nice.
Thanks for the feedback, Linda. You are right– pictures are a great addition and I’m trying to include them more often. Can I answer any questions for you about the cobbler? I hope you give the recipe a try and enjoy!
I made this and it’s delicious. My whole family enjoyed it. Really yummy atop vanilla ice cream. Very easy and quick to make as well.
Thanks, Sherry! I love your suggestion about putting it on ice cream. Crock pot desserts are such an easy treat and it’s great for the whole family!
