Slow Cooker 3-Ingredient Blackberry Cobbler
Okay, you might be thinking “come on Karen, this isn’t a real recipe!” Just give it a chance. That’s all I’m asking. My family and I were DYING over this dessert. We were all in a major depression that there wasn’t enough for us to have seconds.
We were in the mood for a fruit cobbler and went grocery shopping to figure out what to make. We hemmed and hawed whether frozen produce would work. I thought maybe frozen mangoes would be delicious. However in the end we noticed fresh blackberries were on sale and thought that slow cooker 3-ingredient blackberry cobbler would be the perfect choice. We were so right. The tartness from the berries with the sweet cake mix was the perfect combination and when we topped it with vanilla ice cream it was pure heaven in our mouths.
To tell you the truth, I’m not entirely sure that frozen fruit would work optimally in this recipe. I actually don’t think it would. Too much liquid and sogginess. I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t say for sure but if you have the option please go for the fresh blackberries. It is worth it!
We used half a cake mix and a 12 oz package of black berries, however if you want more than 4 servings you can easily just use a whole cake mix, a stick of butter and 2 packages of blackberries. This is what I’m going to do next time…definitely.
