What is Cobbler anyway?

Besides being a fine Southern dish, cobbler goes waaaayyyy back. All of the way to the original British colonies. So it is no surprise that its strong food roots are still well established here in the South.

Cobblers were born out of necessity. Many early settlers found the ingredients required to make their normal puddings to be scarce to none. Out of the lack of having traditional ingredients, the cobbler was born. Stewed fruit was taken and covered with a biscuit like topping and it quickly became a New World favorite.

When Colonist migrated South, they brought those recipes with them. Finding an abundance of fresh fruit here in the South’s kinder climate, all sorts of delicious desserts were incorporated into the new pudding of the new world. As for the origin of the name? It has very little to do with the trade it is normally associated with but more with how the dessert looks after baking.

Southern Cooking Traditions

We talk a lot here about nostalgic cooking. It is recipes like cobblers and pies that really bring back some memories for me. One of our favorites and many others here in the south is PEACH COBBLER. You can run your mouse over that word and be taken directly to a wonderful recipe for that bite of heaven.

I am also a huge proponent for the scratch made, old way of cooking. On the other hand, I also work for a living. Sometimes, even today, much like the early settlers did, we have to find new and innovative ways of doing things. For todays working families, Crock Pots and Electric Pressure cookers really help bring the family around the dinner table. Busy folks can have the time and luxury of a home cooked meal even while working.

So you will see, in order to start and maintain a real tradition in your house of cooking and eating together, you can take a few short cuts too!

How to make Cobbler in the Crock Pot

You will find that most cobblers, even ones you make in the crock pot, all come together in the same manner. Commonly referred to as the “Cup-A” recipe, this one is fairly easy to remember. Let’s show you!

~Ingredients~

  • 1 cup Self Rising Flour
  • 2 cups Fresh or Frozen and thawed Blueberries
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/2 Melted Butter
  • 1 & 1/4 cup sugar, divided(1/4 cup split between berries and topping)

~Method~

  1. In a large bowl, mix self rising flour, 1 cup of the sugar and milk. There will be some lumps. Add in melted butter and mix well. Pour into a well greased liner pot of crock pot. Also coat berries with 2 tablespoons of sugar and allow them to sit.
  2. Sprinkle blueberries over the top of the cobbler mix in the crock pot liner. Evenly distribute them so you will not have to stir them. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar over the top.
  3. Cover and bake in the crock pot on Low for 2 hours or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks

  • Crock pot cooking can sometimes be weird. For example, I own two crock pots. They both have the same temperature type settings but one cooks a little hotter than the other. I suggest you get to know your crock pot before baking in it. If you have had yours for a while, you certainly know if it has any weird habits and can adjust your cooking time accordingly. Crock pots are a lot like your oven though. Once you can smell the food, it is usually close to done. Careful attention if you’ve never baked in one is to watch to make sure the bottom does not burn.
  • Why the sugar on top? For a crispy, crunchy top, that is why! the sugar caramelizes and turns into a real thing of beauty on top of the cobbler. It also enhances the natural sweetness of the fruit.
  • You will have lumps! In any and all cake baking, it is a wonderful suggestion not to mix your batter too much. It does and will affect the finished cake if overmixed. If the lumps bug you, simply mix with a flat whisk like the one found at the bottom of this post. Do it early and effectively, focusing on the lumps only and kind of smashing them with the whisk. Doing this will help you clear the lumps and not over mix the batter!
