Slow Cooker Blueberry Cobbler

Sweet, juicy blueberry dessert with a buttery cake topping! 🫐 This comforting cobbler is so simple to prepare and absolutely delicious for an anytime-of-year treat. Use fresh or frozen blueberries. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream! Heavenly.

Okay, so this cobbler is not going to win any beauty awards. But, when I tell you it is cozy, comforting, and bursting with beautiful, sweet blueberries, I am basically saying… RUN, don’t walk, to your kitchen. You need a slow cooked dessert filling your home with warm aromas and your bowl with homemade goodness. And you need this blueberry cobbler recipe.

On a lazy rainy Sunday, the boys of the house decided to whip this one up. I enjoy stepping back occasionally, and watching them work. Mixing our freshly picked blueberries with sparkling sugar, stirring buttery cake mix, pouring it on top of the luscious fruit. I can honestly take no credit, except that I was panting like a dog anticipating my bowlful. Ha!

But, enough talk. I’ll let this real life, not-very-styled blueberry bowl speak for itself. It’s telling you to grab the ingredients and get slow cookin’, and we better listen.

So, let’s get into the surprisingly simple process and make you an easy, elegant blueberry cobbler!

We love how versatile this cobbler is, and how good a hot bowlful is with scoops of cold vanilla ice cream. I can’t wait to create more with fall fruits like apples, pears and apricots.

Using fresh summer fruit like blueberries, raspberries, peaches and strawberries, the natural sweetness really pops in every spoonful.

Don't want to use cake mix? Combine 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup milk powder, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt in a medium bowl. Use in place of cake mix in the recipe.
Want more flavor? Stir 1/2 teaspoon of fresh lemon zest into your blueberry mixture. This really brightens up the blueberries.
Using paper towels under the lid will catch condensation and keep it from dripping on the cobbler topping.

    What size slow cooker?

  3. I used a 6-qt. slow cooker, but this recipe would work in a 3- to 5-qt. slow cooker, as well.
