Why is it Called Cobbler?
Fun fact: just like other berry cobbler recipes, blueberry cobbler got its name due to the biscuit-like crust that instead of being smooth like a pie crust, is bumpy, giving it a cobbled appearance.
The next time you serve this delicious blueberry dessert or any cobbler recipe you can tell your guests where the name comes from.
Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?
I haven't made this with frozen berries, but I don't see why not. Just check on it to make sure the crust doesn't over cook as the blueberries may take longer to cook. It might be better to let the berries thaw a little first.

• Push the flour mixture to one side of the bowl and add the egg and whisk it.
• Next, mix in milk, vanilla, and canola oil.
• Mix thoroughly until the mixture is fully combined.
• Pour batter into the bottom of your slow cooker.
• Gently spread it in an even layer.
• In a large bowl, toss the blueberries in the remainder of the sugar.
• Pour the blueberries and sugar into the slow cooker, covering the batter completely.
• Cook on high for about 2 hours. Don't let the crust burn.
• When the blueberry cobbler is done cooking, turn off the slow cooker and let the cobbler cool a little before serving.
• Serve the cobbler directly from the slow cooker. Be sure to scoop from the bottom to get the cobbler crust with your blueberry mixture.

What to Serve With Blueberry Cobbler
• Blueberry cobbler is delicious on its own, but you can take this delicious fruity dessert to the next level by serving alongside a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream if you prefer.
• The added creaminess from the ice cream takes this delicious summer dessert to the next level.
• Let it cool just a bit. You don't have to let it sit until it's room temperature, but just until the fruit cobbler is warm enough to enjoy.
Slow Cooker Blueberry Cobbler Tips
- To keep your cobbler from sticking to the bottom of the crockpot, be sure to spray the bottom and sides of your slow cooker with non-stick spray. The crust won’t stick to the bottom of the slow cooker as much as the sides, but the sides can. The nonstick cooking spray works well!
- When tossing your blueberries, not all of the sugar will hold onto the blueberries. This is okay. Just toss and distribute the blueberries and sugar evenly on top of your cobbler crust.
How to Store Blueberry Cobbler
Do you have some leftovers? You can store your blueberry cobbler in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. Alternatively you can pack it into disposable containers and send it home with your guests.
