What Is Berry Cobbler?
Often, we hear the words crisps, cobblers, and streusels being used interchangeably. However, they are not the same things! So, let’s clear up some confusion and define exactly what a cobbler is. A cobbler is a dessert that is typically made with fruit and a biscuit or cake topping. As the fruit mixture cooks, the bottom portion of the topping soaks up some of the fruit juices and creates a drool-worthy treat. There are many different cobbler variations, but they’re all delicious! For our version, we simplified the steps just a bit, for a hands-off berry cobbler that tastes just as if you spent all day in the kitchen!

How to Make this Mixed Berry Cobbler Recipe
You’re not going to believe how easy this recipe is to make!
- Add the pound cake, berries, sugar, and mascarpone to your slow cooker.
- Dollop the mascarpone on top.
- Cover, and cook on high for 2 hours.
- Top the cobbler with your favorite granola.
- Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Can I Use Frozen Berries?
Yes! If you can’t find fresh berries, feel free to swap them out for frozen ones. You don’t even have to thaw them first! Just keep in mind that the extra liquid will create a thinner layer. So, feel free to add more pound cake to soak it up.
Can I Make this Berry Cobbler In Advance?
We do not recommend making the recipe a day in advance, because the cake layer and granola topping will become too soggy.
Although best served fresh, leftovers should be covered and stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
