Slow Cooker Sunday: Fruit Cobbler (Dessert)

Now I know I've already posted one Slow Cooker Sunday recipe today, and I also know that I've also posted this recipe several months ago, but this is the first time I've tried doing the fruit (in fact any dessert) in the slow cooker. Plus it's my blog and I want to post it again, so there you go. I've used the slow cooker for the first part of the recipe as I have no idea if the cobbler bit would cook in it, another time I'll test that out.

Fruit Cobbler

Serves 4-6

  • 800g of mixed fruit, I went for apples, plums, pears and nectarines
  • 160g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 300g self raising flour, sifted
  • 85g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 150g Rachel’s Low Fat Natural Bio Live Yogurt


  1. In the slow cooker take the fruit, 100g of the caster sugar and add the water, cook until the fruit softens. Tip: leave the fruit to cool before adding the cobbler pieces this will stop some of the fruit bubbling out over the dish.
  2. To make the cobbler, add the sifted flour, butter, baking powder and the remainder of the sugar (60g) and using a food processor or mixer whiz together for a few seconds on pulse speed until fine crumbs form.
  3. Add the milk and yogurt and whiz again until a soft dough forms . You can either spoon the mixture in scattered clumps over the fruit or add a little more flour and roll out the dough using a cutter. Leave some gaps for the cobble effect.
  4. Bake the cobbler for 30-35 minutes until the topping is golden and the fruit is visibly bubbling beneath.
  5. Serve with vanilla ice-cream, custard or clotted cream.

    I've done dumplings in the slow cooker so I suppose you could do the cobbler in there too…just wouldn't be as golden & crispy as in the oven.
    The crumble I made the other week looked very much like this as I set the kitchen aid to mix the crumble but forgot about it so it ended up in a lump!

    This does sound as lovely as when you first mentioned it. I have never done a pudding in my slow cooker yet probably because we don't tend to eat them very often. Glad that you are making such great use of your new cooking appliance xx

    I make fruit cobbler all the time (love it!) and never thought it could be made in a slow cooker! In fact, it sounds like its quicker to make it there than in a regular oven (35 mins here to 55 mins in the oven!) although I don't pre-soften the fruit. It looks lovely though 🙂

    Slow cookers are excellent for puddings.I made an oven baked cobbler last week but now you've done it in the slow cooker I think I'll give it a go too.
    P.S. I was going to add two recipes too but didn't in the end.
