Are you looking for a quick and easy recipe that is great for breakfast or as a dessert? Then you simply must try this Crock Pot Blueberry Cake from Gooseberry Patch’s Super Fast Slow Cooking!
I absolutely love anything blueberry. One of my first memories is of my dad whipping up a batch of blueberry pancakes while we were on vacation. We were at a picnic area right below Devil’s Tower in Wyoming and it was just so perfect. From there I have since fell in love with blueberries…blueberry muffins, blueberry cupcakes, blueberry cake donuts…you get the idea.
I had never had a blueberry cake before though, so this Crock Pot Blueberry Cake was something I wanted to try. And it is so delicious!
Crock Pot Blueberry Cake
This Crock Pot Blueberry Cake is super easy to make and only has six ingredients! Mommy score!
First, you will want to hold out 1/3 cup of the blueberry muffin mix and put it in a separate bowl. We will get back to it in just a minute.
Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.
Then mix together the remaining muffin mix, your milk, egg and cinnamon until it is just combined.
Pour it into your crock pot and make sure it is spread evenly.
Note: I used my old school crock pot…you know the round one that isn’t very wide from the 80’s or 90’s. This recipe doesn’t make a ton (which is perfect for my family of 3), so I didn’t want it to be too thin.
Now, let’s go back to the 1/3 cup of blueberry muffin mix we set aside at the beginning. Add 1/3 packed cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of softened butter.
If you are like me and have a hard time remembering to set butter out to soften, I have you covered! Simply take whatever measurement you need softened and place it in the microwave on the defrost setting for 15 seconds. Check and see if it is softened. If it is not, turn it over and try another 10-15 seconds on the defrost setting. Make sure to adjust to your microwave. You don’t want it to get too soft and hard to work with.
Take a knife and fork and cut your muffin mix, brown sugar and softened butter together. I may or may not get impatient at times due to my lack of “cutting” skills and dig in with my hands after a minute or two. Do whatever works best for you.
Now take your crumble and sprinkle it over the top of the batter in your crock pot. Try to get it as even as possible.
Next you will want to take 6-8 paper towels and cover the top of your crock pot before placing the lid on to catch any condensation.
Cover and cook on high for 1-1/2 hours.
Once your Crock Pot Blueberry Cake is done, turn off your crock pot and let it stand for about 10 minutes. Then loosen the edges with a knife and serve it up!
It was so yummy and easy to make! Enjoy!
