W4DW-Crock Pot Blackberry Cobbler

We are going to take a break from #ProjectPotRoast this week to bring you a dessert recipe for the slow cooker!  I tried this recipe for The Farmer's birthday and was amazed at how good it turned out!  I was planning to make a Cherry Cobbler, but got out a bag of frozen blackberries instead.  Ooops!  Have you ever had to adapt on the fly after the wrong ingredient was thawed out?  The boys didn't seem to mind and were excited I was using the berries they had picked in the pastures.  I guess I will try a Cherry Cobbler in the Crock Pot next time.  :)


Crockpot Blackberry Cobbler

1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon orange peel, optional

Combine flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Combine eggs, milk and oil into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Spread batter evenly onto bottom of a greased 5 quart slow cooker.  In a saucepan, combine berries, water, orange peel and remaining sugar; bring to boil.  Remove from heat and immediately pour over batter.  Cover and cook on High for 2-2.5 hours or until a toothpick inserted into the batter comes out clean.  Turn cooker off.  Uncover and let stand 30 minutes before serving.  Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.  Makes 6 servings.
