Crock-Pot Express Crock Berry Cobbler

There is no better way to celebrate the arrival of spring (finally!) than with a berry cobbler. We made ours in our new handy-dandy Crock-Pot Express Crock and it was delicious! Thanks to the Crock-Pot Brand for sponsoring this post! The stars of the show are undoubtedly the 4 cups (two cups of each) of blueberries and raspberries that bubble into a single juicy, fruity layer topping the cobbler. But the dessert would be incomplete without the cobbler base which, in my opinion, is the perfect carb- fluffy, with a dash of cinnamon. Top with a scoop of ice cream and watch as it disappears.

Funny story: This was actually the very first dish I made in our brand new multi-cooker. And don’t you know it, the one time in my life that I don’t read the directions, they turn out to be super important. The dessert photographed here is actually my second attempt- the first time around, I made an irreparable mistake. As I would soon learn, the first step in successfully cooking with our shiny new Crock-Pot Express Crock is ensuring the machine has enough moisture in it to cook properly. It’s as simple as pouring a cup of water in the bottom of the pan… but I didn’t do that.  Instead, I unknowingly spread my cobbler base directly on the bottom of the pan. So, when the error code popped up on the screen, the only thing I could do to fix it was to start over.

But once I knew what I was doing, it was super easy. I covered the bottom with a cup of water, set the steamer rack that was included in the base of the pot, and this time I cooked my cobbler in a 7 inch springform pan. The machine was happy to have water, the cobbler was safely above the water line, and I was ecstatic that I had redeemed myself. The moral of my story: read the directions. Simple, I know, but it’s always tempting to cut corners. I strongly recommend that you fight that urge to save yourself from embarrassing incidents- like this one.

Cobbler Base
 1 cup Flour
 3 tbsp Sugar
 1 tsp Baking powder
 ¼ tsp Cinnamon
 1 Egg
 ¼ cup Milk
 2 tbsp Oil
Fruit Filling
 2 cups Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
 2 cups Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
 1 cup Sugar
 ¼ cup Flour
 ½ tbsp Lemon juice
  tsp Salt

Cobbler Base
1

In large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, mixing well. Add the wet ingredients and whisk just until the mixture becomes homogenous. Pour the batter into the bottom of a greased 7 inch springform pan (or whatever size pan fits in your multi-cooker). Level into an even layer.

Fruit Topping
2

In a separate bowl, combine all of the topping ingredients. Mix to coat the berries, then pour the entire mixture on top of the batter in the prepared pan. Place in your multi-cooker and cook using the pressure cooker function until a toothpick inserted in the cobbler comes out clean.

3

(I don't have a great sense of how much time it needs. I steamed mine for 40 minutes and it was done. The original recipes says to cook for 2 - 2 1/2 hours, in a 5 qt cooker. Use your best judgement and check the progress periodically.) Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream, if desired.
