Black and Blue Cobbler Recipe

Black and Blue Cobbler Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 2 hours + standing YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
