What ingredients do you need for a crockpot cobbler? Combine boxed vanilla cake, frozen berries, brown sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch, and butter.

Semi-homemade recipes are my absolute favorite because you can keep the majority of your list in your pantry – ready to go. Starting a cake from scratch can really deter most people from ever starting!

This recipe takes about 3 minutes to prep. This easy berry cobbler recipe has that old world taste but without all the fuss.

A note about the size of the cake mix for this crockpot cobbler. Be sure to use a 9-ounce cake mix while making this berry cobbler. This recipe is crafted with that size in mind. Your typical boxed cake mix is much larger.

Crockpot Cobbler Ingredients:

  • 1 package, 12 oz, frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, red and black raspberries) Keep frozen.
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 small package, 9oz, white or yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick, 1/2 cup, melted butter
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional for serving

Crockpot Cobbler Directions:

Spray your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. We’ve made this recipe before and have done it without the nonstick spray and noticed that there can be parts of the cake that starts to burn – the edges specifically.

A quick spray can eliminate this issue. Make sure you cover all-around your crockpot. 

Place your frozen berries into your slow cooker. Add the cornstarch and mix well. Stir in your brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla and mix well to evenly coat. At this point, you will want to sprinkle in your cake mix all over on top.

Next up, drizzle in your melted butter. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. This is the easy part when it comes to our crockpot cobbler.

How will you know when your crockpot cobbler is done? Cooking is usually done when the cake begins to brown on the edges and/or pull away. When you see this happen, turn off your slow cooker, Open the lid and allow to cool for about 20 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

What Crockpot should I buy?

There are so many great crockpot options available online right now. Most of which are available under $50. I suggest this brand because the price is right and the value is absolutely there. 

Can I Use Other Fruit Besides The Mixed Frozen Bag?

Yes! If you are craving a peach cobbler recipe or even a cherry cobbler recipe, you can tweak this recipe and adjust the ingredients as needed. Use what you love. I always believe in that life motto.

What Can I Serve With My Crockpot Cobbler?

I like to keep things simple and serve the cobbler either as is, with a scoop of ice cream, or a heaping tablespoon of whipped cream. Yum and yum.
