This Slow Cooker Berry Cobbler is an easy dessert recipe that uses fresh or frozen berries so it’s the perfect sweet treat year round! Just 10 minutes prep!

I don’t know if there’s anything better than a warm dessert with vanilla ice cream!

We have a whole list of favorites (like my Grandma’s Hot Fudge Sundae Cake, this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp, or a slice of this Apple Upside Down Cake), but the ease of this Slow Cooker Berry Cobbler takes it right to the top of the list.

Berry Cobbler

With just 5-10 minutes of active prep time, it’s the perfect dessert to whip up in the afternoon if you find a moment of quiet, or while dinner is cooking for an after dinner treat.

This Berry Cobbler is also incredibly versatile.

You can use any berries you have, or add in other fruit that you have laying around and need to be used.

You can use fresh or frozen berries, so you can make it year round without sacrificing any flavor, but it tastes like summer.

How to make Crockpot Berry Cobbler:

Making cobbler in the slow cooker is not quite the same as making it in the oven.

There are several different ways to make cobbler, and they are all quite different.

Some cobbler recipes have a layer of fruit on the top, and crumbly biscuit-like cakes on the top.

Some cobbler recipes, like this one, have a layer of cake on the bottom, and a thick layer of fruit filling on top.

If you prefer your cobbler with crumbly biscuits, then this slow cooker version might not be your thing.

Crockpot cobbler will still have a thick cake layer, and a thick, oozing fruit layer, but slow cookers can’t do “crisp”. It is like a combination of cobbler and pudding cake, and we are 100% in love.

Variations on this Berry Cobbler:

As I mentioned above, you can make this crockpot cobbler with any fruit you have lying around. Try:

  • peaches and raspberries
  • strawberries, blackberries and blueberries
  • blueberries, with some lemon zest added to the cake batter
  • peaches, pears and pineapple
  • get creative!

    I only have a 6 quart slow cooker, so I’m wondering if you think it will work using that, and decreasing the length of cooking time. Thanks!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Hi Becca! It will, but the cook time really depends more on the area of the bottom than the capacity, so if it’s a smaller but deeper 6 quart, then you may not have to change the cook time much. If it’s wide and your cake layer will be much thinner, then you’ll want to reduce the cook time.

    This cobbler is so delicious! It couldn’t be any easier to make using my crock pot. Thanks for the great dessert!

  3. Susan Irick says

    Cooked this for the family yesterday – it was gone before bedtime ! Everyone loved it ! Thanks for the great recipe !

  4. Jan Jenkins says

    I know this is very random..I’m good friends with a gal in Washington..same last name as yours. Never seen another Fehr in phone books. I’m making a double batch of berry cobbler today from your recipe which is how I came across your name. Thanks for the recipe too.

    • Ashley Fehr says

      I haven’t ever tried doubling it, so I’m not totally sure. My only concern would be that it would have to cook longer so that the cake in the bottom was completely cooked through, so hopefully the bottom wouldn’t get too dark. I think it’s worth a shot! I’d love to hear how it works if you try it!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Let me know how it turns out! I’ve never tried with less sugar, though you could reduce the sugar in the berries without affecting the recipe much (aside from the sweetness).

  5. Izzy @ She Likes Food says

    Berry desserts with vanilla ice cream are my favorite things ever this time of year!! I just want a huge bowl of this right now! And I’m thinking that in a few months I will not want to turn my oven on at all, so a slow cooker dessert would be so nice!

  6. Rachel @ Bakerita says

    OMG yaaaas I have never made slow cooker cobbler but I need to get going on that – I love how easy it is to just throw together, set and forget. Need a big bowl of this with ice cream!

  7. Dorothy Dunton says

    Hi Ashley! I just made a mixed berry cobbler day before yesterday! I used frozen berries because even though berries are in the stores, they are terribly expensive and who knows where they come from! I will be trying this slow cooker version next!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Yes, frozen berries are awesome! We have “berries” in grocery stores year round but they are nothing like the real deal! It’s just too bad our growing season is so short here — only a couple weeks! But when they come I am ready! πŸ˜‰

  8. Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary says

    The comfort food diet?! Now THAT is a diet I can get behind, since I’m 100% against dieting. I just can’t restrict myself from all the delicious things in life… so that type of diet has my name written all over it! And so does this slow cooker cobbler! Can you believe I have NEVER made a dessert in the slow cooker! I know – whaaaa? I need to fix that. Pronto. And starting with this! Love love loooooove this cobbler, girlfriend! Looks seriously delicious and I’m loving all that fruit! Gimme! Pinned! Cheers, sweets!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Seriously, I have only made a handful of desserts in my slow cooker but it’s so perfect for those warm, melty-ice-cream types! (The best, obviously!). And yeah — that’s about the only kind of diet I can handle! LOl.

  9. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says

    I agree, slow cooker desserts are the best! I’ve only made one dessert in my slow cooker before, so I definitely need to change that. I absolutely love the idea of making cobbler in there! So perfect for the summer because then you don’t have to heat your house up! Wishing I had this for breakfast!
