Pressure-Cooker Black and Blue Cobbler

It never occurred to me that I could bake a cobbler in my pressure cooker until I saw some recipes and decided to try my favorite fruity dessert recipe. It took a bit of experimenting, but the tasty results were "berry" well worth it. -Martha Creveling, Orlando, Florida
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Cook: 15 min. + standing
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • Optional: Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream


  • In an 8-qt. electric pressure cooker, add 1 cup of water.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Combine the eggs, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spread the batter evenly onto the bottom of a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish.
  • In a large saucepan, combine the berries, water, orange zest and remaining sugar; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; immediately pour over batter. Place a piece of aluminum foil loosely on top of dish to prevent moisture from getting inside. Fold an 18x12-in. piece of foil lengthwise into thirds, making a sling. Place dish on a trivet; using foil sling, lower dish and trivet into pressure cooker. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 15 minutes. Allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes and then quick-release any remaining pressure.
  • Using sling, lift dish from pressure cooker. Uncover and let stand for 30 minutes before serving. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
