Crockpot Cobbler – Easy Berry Cobbler Recipe

This crockpot cobbler is perfect all year round because during the summer we all crave fruit desserts, but in the winter we all look for something warm and hearty. It’s a win-win, folks! A crockpot cake like this is always a great choice.

I love recipes that are semi-homemade – meaning that we get to use a cake mix instead of having to worry about starting from scratch. This easy berry cobbler recipe has that old world taste but without all the fuss.

Easy Berry Crockpot Cobbler Recipe

To get started, you will naturally need a crockpot. A slow cooker is a woman’s best friend. Honestly! I lean on mine SO HARD these days because there’s something really freeing about throwing a ton of ingredients into a machine and then walking away.

Walking a-w-a-y. No stove sitting when there is a crockpot on duty. A literal lifesaver – especially on those days when I have SO much work to do and not enough time. If you want to surprise the kids with a little something sweet after dinner, a berry cobbler will certainly hit the spot.

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. 

Personally, I tend to lean towards the blueberry cobbler recipe over anything else, but that is just me. Crockpot recipes are very forgiving – so do what you like. 

Do I Have To Use The Cake Mix?

Well, this recipe includes cake mix as the main ingredient as an attempt to make this crockpot cake EASY for the maker. Unforutently, I don’t know what this recipe would taste like if you tried to swap out proper ingredients instead of the pre-made cake mix. 

So, for this particular recipe, the answer is yes. You have to use the cake mix. But I am sure if you look online, you will find plenty of recipes that will show you the right amount of ingredients for the other way. 

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.
