Blackberries were on sale the other day so I couldn’t help but grab a few punnets. When  I went home I wondered what I would do with them. We usually just eat it plain or as is but I thought I ought to make some dessert using the berries because it was the weekend and hubby always wants to have a good dessert during Sunday lunch.

I didn’t feel like turning the oven on but wanted to have a dessert ready for when we come home. Voila – the slow cooker to the rescue!

I have made a berry cobbler in the slow cooker so I knew I only needed to make a few tweaks here and there. However, that recipe was made of a combination of berries while for this one I am limited to only one kind.

I wasn’t sure if these blackberries would hold up on their own! But I carried on and cooked it in the slow cooker.

The result was unbelievably delicious! It was so good that my little boy kept asking for more. Thankfully, we are a small family so we had a little bit of left-over for the next day which my boy certainly enjoyed.

I love that this is super-easy to make – totally no-fuss and prep time is just about 10 minutes and the result is indeed a heavenly dessert!

We love to serve this warm with either some pouring cream (simple heavy cream or whipping cream) and certainly with ice cream! This is certainly perfect for summer when you don’t wish to turn the oven on! Enjoy!

    Wow. This sounds so easy and looks fabulous. I've never attempted to do a dessert in the slow cooker but now I think I need to.

      I love using the slow cooker for dessert especially during summer! 🙂

    I love using my slow cooker. You know….I have yet to make a dessert in it. I know…seriously what is wrong with me. I will have to give this delicious cobbler a try. Looks easy and would be perfect for entertaining.

    Decadent dessert, looks yumm! i have never used slow-cooker, but have seen many recipes using them!!!

  5. May 6, 2017 / 12:39 pm

    I'm loving my new slow cooker but have never made a dessert in it yet.. Need to try this..

  6. May 6, 2017 / 7:27 pm

    I'm glad you said slow cooker instead of insta-pot. There are so many recipes using that equipment and I don't have it. Your dessert looks amazing. I bet your son did enjoy every bite. Great idea for using the berries but I imagine it would work equally as well with other fruit.

    • May 7, 2017 / 7:47 pm

      You can certainly use your favorite summer fruit. Thanks!

    I have not used slow cooker and I am always amazed at the wonderful recipes that people make in their slow cooker. The cobbler looks amazing and blackberry is a great choice.

      I have been using a slow cooker for over 40 years!!! they are one of the best inventions and saves time and also keeps house cool during summer. I have made pizza, moletin lava cake, soups, a lot of meat recipes in it. I now have an instant Pot which actually the best thing to own if you are short on time! I make a lot of chicken recipes in it and i cook a value pack of drumsticks and it only takes 10 min before it is done! Cooks beans in a little over an hour too. I use it weekly if not daily. You might like the instant pot since it has many uses, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, pressure cooker, sautes..they have gone down considerably in price!! Available at amazon, walmart, and so many other stores. good luck

    Omgggg this looks amazing! I'm such a fan of the slow cooker bc it's more of a *make and leave* sort of thing but DESSERT IN A SLOW COOKER? SUCH GENIUS.

    By the way, I am so loving your blog right now! Everything looks soooo delicious!

    This is awesome! Delicious! I added some lemon juice and zest. It’s good on a hot summer day to plug in on the porch and not have to heat up the kitchen!

    My daughter has celiac disease and can’t have gluten. Can it be made with almond flour and still taste as good ?

      I haven’t tried it with gluten-free flour but I think it shouldn’t be a problem. I’d say give it a go and let us know how it works.

      I haven’t made this exact same recipe in the oven so I don’t wish to guess time, temps, etc because baking instructions need to be precise. This one was made for the slow cooker. I do have another version that’s meant for the oven and you can simply just use blackberries or a combo for it – this one is delicious, too. https://www.manilaspoon.com/2013/07/mixed-berry-and-pecan-cobbler.html

      Yes, they may not hold up their shape as much as the fresh ones but they should work. Enjoy.
