The good thing about slow cookers: It’s super easy! All you do is mix and leave. The bad thing about slow cookers: You need lots of patience to wait for the deliciousness to finish cooking. I made this awesome berry grunt, filled with the best fruit of the season: Berries! This dessert is like eating muffin tops with a bed of berry pie filling underneath. Awesome.

CrockPot Berry Grunt
Adapted from Merry Gourmet
- 32 ounces of berries (I used a mix of raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries)
- 2 cups of flour, divided
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp of sugar (I only used 1/4 of a cup in the berry mix and it was totally sweet enough for me)
- juice of half a lemon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup +2 tbsp of milk
- 3 tbsp of melted unsalted butter
- a pinch of salt
- In a large bowl, mix the berries, 1/4 cup of flour, lemon juice, 1/2 cup of sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon together until all the berries are covered.
- Evenly spread the berry mix in a slow-cooker.
- In another bowl, mix the baking powder, 2 tbsp of sugar, 1+ 3/4 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of milk, melted butter, and salt. Stir until well combined.
- Dollop the batter on top of the berries in the slow-cooker, making it evenly spread out as possible.
- Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top of the batter for an extra kick of delicious.
- Cook in the slow-cooker for 4 hours on medium heat. The batter should be thoroughly cooked.
- Serve warm! I sprinkled some latik, which is toasted coconut milk crumbles that I made to pass the time during the making of this grunt.
