Reviews for Black and Blue Cobbler
"very good!I made the following changes:I made 1 & 1/2 of the batter crust. I used the 1/2 portion batter recipe as a topping.before I made the berry portion I took the 3/4 cup of water & made it hot then added a half box of berry jello, stirred until powder was dissolved. I added it to ingredients in the saucepan and made the berry portion according to instructions."
"It was ok. I expected more of a cobbler topping. I don't think I'd make it again. It wasn't a cobbler."
"This recipe is now a go to for smaller gatherings. Never any leftovers and always compliments. Reliable slow cooker performance as is."
"Made half the recipe in a 2-quart slow cooker. I used a 12-ounce bag of frozen mixed berries, which I thawed before cooking to see how much juice there was (it came to 2 tbsp). I used the juice to replace part of the water. We liked this a lot, and the 2-hour cooking time was just right. Next time I may add tapioca or cornstarch for a thicker berry sauce."
"Delicious and easy!"
