If you have a slow cooker, you probably know just how versatile they can be. Some of the more familiar uses may be for a meat stew, some kind of vegetable soup or even a chili. What some people forget, however, is that they can be just as effective at making delicious desserts—and you barely have to do anything. With spring upon us, we may want to start using fresher and lighter ingredients in our recipes—and that goes for desserts as well.
With that in mind, we have a delicious blueberry cobbler recipe for you today that you can make in your slow cooker with very little effort. All you need to do is throw in the ingredients and forget about it. Your family and your taste buds are sure to thank you for this tasty recipe.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 4 cups of blueberries
- 1 cup of sugar (plus two tablespoons)
- 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 tube of pre-made biscuit dough
Here’s what you do:
1. First, use some of your butter to grease up the inside of your slow cooker. After that, throw in your blueberries, a cup of sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and vanilla and stir it all up until it’s evenly combined.
2. Once that’s all in there, open up your tube of pre-made dough and break it up into separate biscuits. Then, cut each of those biscuits into a few chunks. Layer your pieces of biscuit evenly over the berries in the slow cooker. After that, mix together your two tablespoons of sugar with one teaspoon of cinnamon and delicately sprinkle that over the top of everything.
3. Next, get three to four paper towels and carefully drape them over the top of your slow cooker to absorb any excess moisture during the cooking process. After that, cover the slow cooker and let it cook on high for two hours.
4. Once it’s done, scoop out your delicious cobbler and serve it with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream (or both)!
As you can see, making this delicious and fruity dessert is about as easy as it gets. If done correctly, the resulting blueberry cobbler will have a nice, fluffy top which is golden-brown and can be pulled apart easily. When you scoop into it with a spoon, the bottom should be gooey and sweet with a kick of tartness as well. And be sure to not to skimp on the ice cream, as we said.
While the above is pretty straightforward, there are still a few things you can do to tweak this recipe so that it fits your tastes. For one thing, you can make the crust a little bit crispier if you spread a tablespoon of melted butter on top of the biscuits before adding your cinnamon sugar. Similarly, the basis of this recipe works for any kind of berry cobbler that you may have in mind. Once you’ve mastered this, give it a shot with raspberries, strawberries or a mix! No matter how you spin it, this one is sure to be delicious.
