What is a Cobbler?

Blueberry cobbler is a simple dessert that consists of a cake-like crust and a sweet, dense filling made with berries.

I find that the best way to make this recipe is with frozen blueberries. This will allow the dish to cook at a higher temperature without having blueberry juices run out of the pan.

Blueberries are absolute perfection and not just because they’re delicious – their intense color makes them perfect as an ingredient on top of sweet treats like cobblers and pies. I think you will agree this is a simple recipe!

This recipe is super easy and a great way to use fruit. It’s the perfect dessert for summer parties or BBQ’s because I can turn it on a few hours before dessert time. There’s something about having a warm dessert with some cold ice cream on top that really makes you feel at home, no?

Get started by gathering your ingredients before starting on your recipe and then follow these steps below.

Ingredient List

  • 4 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 box uncooked cake mix of your choice
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces

Supplies

Slow Cooker
Slow Cooker Liners

Prepare the inside of your slow cooker, either with non-stick spray or coat it with melted butter. 

There’s no mixing bowl needed, this is just like an easy dump cake recipe.

Start with your fruit layer and then sprinkle the dry cake mix on top. 

Top the dry ingredients with the butter pieces and give it all a good mix.

Top with more blueberries and cook on low for 3-4 hours until your delicious dessert is golden brown on top.

You are going to want to top your Blueberry Cobbler with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Do I need to Refrigerate my Cobbler?

Yes. Because you are using fruit, it is a good idea to refrigerate your room temperature cobbler.

I find the easiest way to do so is to transfer my finished dessert to a casserole dish and then wrap it in plastic wrap. Or you can use an airtight container of your choice.

Do I Need to Thaw my Frozen Fruit When I make a Cobbler?

No need to thaw your frozen fruit when making your crock pot cobbler.

What Kind of Fruit Can I Substitute with?

You can use a variety of different types of fruit. Fresh fruit like fresh peach slices (cake mix peach cobbler recipe), fresh blackberries (blackberry cobbler) and other fresh berries and more.

You can also use a variety of canned fruits to make fruit cobblers. I have used a can of cherry pie filling and blueberry pie mix and a can of peaches.

Can I Use a Different Type of Cake Mix?

Yes! This is the easiest recipe to customize with different cake mixes. I have made this classic dessert with a chocolate cake mix, white cake mix, lemon cake mix, spice and butter pecan cake mix.

This Delicious 3 ingredient Crock Pot Blueberry Cobbler recipe can be made with fresh or frozen blueberries! Serve it warm with some vanilla ice cream for an easy dessert!

What size slow cooker is this recipe intended for? I think it must be for larger (6 qt or more) crock pots, because I've been cooking this for over 6 hours and it's still not browning. It seems overloaded with blueberries, too. Could you please specify what size slow cooker to use with this recipe? I always read comments to look for missing information, but the only comments I see were written before trying the recipe.

Do you cover the slow cooker or leave it open?!

Yes, for any slow cooker / crock pot recipe, you want to keep it covered while cooking.

That looks absolutely delicious. I thin it would be good with blackberries too.

Wow 6 pounds? Good job- nothing beats fresh handpicked berries! This cobbler looks amazing too.

I love fruit desserts and we have a lot of berries here in Vermont so I make a lot of cobblers and crumbles.
