Crock Pot Blackberry Cobbler
A baked dessert still bubbling when it hits our plates warms our hearts as well as our tummies. Crockpot blackberry cobbler is a sweet twist to a Southern favorite. Just toss a few ingredients together and you have a delicious dessert for your family table. This could also be a fun addition to the holiday table, as well!
Just a Few Tips
You can use a variety of fruits or berries for this recipe. Try it with sliced peaches or apples!
Blackberries hold their shape very well in a cobbler. If you want, however, you can run the berries in a food processor for a puree.
You can use either fresh or frozen berries and get the same delicious results!
I had said before that you can use frozen but otherwise get creative with what berries are in season. It is Fall as I write this and blueberries and raspberries are at their peak. If you use raspberries, drizzle a little chocolate over the cobbler with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Working Your Cobbler Magic
Let’s start at a familiar part for all of us at Oh My Gravy! The crockpot liner. I swear by these whether you use the plastic kind or if you use aluminum foil. It makes cleanup a breeze and helps keep you where you want to be. With your family.
After you line your crockpot, pour in your berries. I rinse mine beforehand even if I use frozen. It gives me a calm mind not having to worry about what companies wash their produce or who has handled it.
Sprinkle the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of the sugar on top. Pour in 2 tablespoons of the melted butter and toss well until everything is coated.
I generally try to keep it all in a single dish cooking system (all in the crockpot), but this time you will need to mix the batter in a separate bowl. So let’s put the flour, 3/4 cup of the sugar, baking powder, and salt in your bowl and blend well.
Add your milk, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of the melted butter and mix smooth like you would a cake batter. Don’t over mix. The lumps will resolve themselves in the baking process.
Pour the batter over the blackberries in the crockpot as evenly as you can. You may need to spread it some, but remember it will spread on its own, as well.
Mix 1 tablespoon of sugar with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the batter.
Cover and bake in the crockpot for 2 1/2 hours on high. Remember, just like with the oven door, don’t go peeking every few minutes. It will interfere with the cooking process.
I hope you enjoy this crockpot blackberry cobbler recipe as you can alter it to fit any fresh or frozen berry, which is my favorite part. Having so many options makes this Oh My Gravy Good!
