Crock Pot-ing Up Some Berry Cobbler!

Since my most latest crock pot attempts have been very successful I decided to take it to the next level with a dessert in the crock pot. I want to say berries are in season, because a couple weeks ago I got some on sale, but I actually don't really know. This recipe calls for frozen berries so we don't have to worry, those are always in season ;)

1. First we make the topping for the cobbler, I guess that's the cobbler of the berry cobbler. So for the cobbler, in a large bowl mix together 1 cup flour,  ¾ cup sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder (which I forgot the second time I made this), ¼ teaspoon of salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

2. In a separate smaller bowl combine 2 eggs, 3 tablespoons of oil and 2 tablespoons of milk. Don't mix it with the dry ingredients just yet. (I got a nice surprise of turning around and finding I had a little helper!)

3. In a pretty big pan you're going to add in the berries (about pretty big bag of frozen berries works great, anything more than 3 cups and you'll have a nice ratio of berries!), 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of water and 3 tablespoons of quick-cooking tapioca. (When I was in the grocery store I really had no idea where the tapioca was located and I had to google it. It ended up being right by the pudding cups, Jello etc, which of course in retrospect makes so much sense!)

4. Just cook till boiling. While you wait, continue to step 5, its pretty quick, but you'll have time!

5. Now you can mix together your egg mixture with the flour mixture. Just mix enough so that they are combined but don't over mix. (Told you it was quick!)

6. Pour your boiled berries into the crock pot and scoop on top, the cobbler mix. Turn the crock-pot on high and cook for 1:45hrs-2hrs.

7. Here it is after 2hrs! So yummy! My house smelled amazing! I made this for my bible study and I think they really liked it!

Can you guess what I had for breakfast that morning? Yep, more Berry Cobbler.

Then I made more this past weekend! Mmm...but that was the batch without baking powder so we just ate all yummy berries underneath. My mother in law just went to Holland and brought back this Dutch pancake mix, so I made those and poured the berries over the top and with some homemade whipped cream. The whipped cream is so easy: 1 cup of heavy cream mix till soft peaks, 1 tablespoon confectioners sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla extra, mix till it looks like whipped cream! So yummy! Whenever you order this in restaurants you don't get too many berries, so I loved having more berries than pancakes!

INGREDIENTS: 1 cup flour, 3/4 cup sugar plus 1 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon, chinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 2 eggs, 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons milk, 1 big bag frozen berries, 1 cup water and 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
