Slow-Cooker Blueberry Cobbler
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 3 hours
Note: I am giving this five stars but with serious modifications. First of all I use a small slow cooker and use a half recipe. Secondly I cannot STAND the taste of commercial cake mix so I use my own (1.5 cups unbleached flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup milk powder, 1 tsp baking powder,. 1/2 tsp sea salt). Thirdly, and very important, do not put any sugar in with the blueberries. It's not needed. The cake topping is sweet enough with the berries. I do use the vanilla though. I never tried this recipe with store bought mix as I don't use the stuff ever so I can't give an honest review to that version. But with my modifications my husband and I think this is heavenly and one of our favourite desserts. Super simple to make too.
I had high hopes for this cobbler, since I'm always on the search for a good cobbler recipe. Since we don't like things to be too sweet, I adjusted the amount of sugar added to the blueberries from 1 cup to 1/3 cup. However, the French vanilla cake mix's primary ingredient is sugar, so this ended up being WAY too sweet for our taste. It had an odd artificial vanilla flavor that I assume was from the cake mix. Also, even though I followed directions explicitly and cooked this on low for the full 4 hours, the cake mix part seemed mushy and never really developed a 'cake' consistency. I cannot recommend this recipe.
