Cherry cobbler is the perfect summer dessert. For starters, it's a great way to use up that seasonal produce. And when you add vanilla ice cream? You can't get better than that. Oh, wait, you can...because you can now make your next cobbler in the slow-cooker. You're welcome.


4 cups pitted cherries

½ cup sugar

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2¼ cups all-purpose flour

⅓ brown sugar

1¼ teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

pinch of salt

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

⅔ cup buttermilk

1 egg, beaten

Vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)


1. In a small bowl, toss the cherries with the sugar, cornstarch and vanilla extract.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and pinch of salt to combine. Add the melted butter, buttermilk and beaten egg, and mix until a smooth batter forms.

3. Pour the cherries into the slow cooker and top with scoops of batter. Cook on high for 2 to 2½ hours.

4. Divide into bowls, and serve with ice cream, if desired.
