Mixed Berry Cobbler in a Crock pot

Making desserts in the crock pot is easily one of the best inventions ever! Well, maybe it's not that great but I seriously love being able to mix some ingredients together and dump it all in a crock pot. You can check on this dish once an hour versus having to check it every twenty minutes. (It also eliminates having the oven on during a hot summer day.) I had company for dinner and they loved this dessert. Ken even said it was the best cobbler he had ever had.

My cobbler is a little on the runny side because I was distracted at the grocery store and forgot the tapioca.

  • 1 package (15 ounces) frozen mixed berries
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • Cool whip or vanilla ice cream
  1. Spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Mix berries, sugar, tapioca and lemon peel.
  3. Pour mixture into crock pot.
  4. Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder and nutmeg. Mix well.
  5. Add milk and butter to flour mixture.
  6. Pour flour mixture over berries. 
  7. Cook on low for four hours or until cobber topping is cooked.
  8. Top with Cool Whip or serve with vanilla ice cream.
