Slow-Cooker Summer Cobbler

Slow-Cooker Summer Cobbler

Pop into the slow cooker just before guests start arriving for a family favorite.



  • 1 tablespoon softened butter, for greasing the slow-cooker insert 3 cups sliced peaches (3/4-inch wedges, frozen or fresh)
  • 3 cups mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries and blackberries work best)
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 3/4 cup pecan halves (or roughly chopped pecans)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dried buttermilk (may be omitted if unavailable)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving


  1. Make the filling: Grease the insert of a large slow cooker (5 to 6 quarts) liberally with the 1 tablespoon softened butter. Place the peaches and berries in the insert and sprinkle with the lemon zest, juice, granulated sugar, flour and salt and toss to coat.
  2. Make the topping: In a small food processor, process the pecans, flour, oats, granulated sugar, brown sugar, dried buttermilk powder (if using), cinnamon and salt until well blended. Add the butter and pulse just until the butter is pea-sized (about 5 pulses).
  3. Sprinkle the topping over the fruit. Place a kitchen towel between the insert and the lid (to absorb condensation). Cook on high for 90 minute to 2 hours. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
