It never occurred to me that I could bake a cobbler in my slow cooker until I saw some recipes and decided to try my favorite fruity dessert recipe. It took a bit of experimenting, but the tasty results are "berry" well worth it. -Martha Creveling, Orlando, Florida

This recipe was a hit!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 9, 2013

This is a KEEPER!! I have made this twice now. The first time as directed. Second time (which I like better) I replaced the sugar with Stivea, orange zest with lemon and added 1 tblsp of corn starch to the berrie mixture as it cooked. Made it thicker after cooking. I also doubled the cobbler mixture and 1 1/2 times for the berries. Cooked it on low for 4 hrs and it made it a fluffier biscuit. Family loves this! Served it with fresh whipped cream. Mmm Mm!

I've made this twice. First time exactly as above. Second time I replaced the sugar with stivea. Turned out amazingly juicy. I doubled the recipe but I also cooked it on low for 4 1/2 hours. Seemed like it was fluffier biscuit this way. My family raved over this.

This got a definite thumbs up from my family! I added 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves to the batter for a little extra kick. Amazingly, when the cooking was done, I realized that I had forgotten to add the baking powder!!! It didn't matter--the batter still cooked up very nicely and made a perfect biscuit for the cobbler. I'll definitely be making it again.

It had no taste. It just taste like boring berries. It was missing something. May try it again with different fruit.
