This one works GREAT!! I have another one but just need to find it

Blueberry Cobbler

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar, divided (1/4 cup and 2 Tbsp)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 pinch cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups blueberries (or berry of your choice)
1/4 cup water

In a bowl, combine flour, half of the divided sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
In a smaller bowl, combine eggs, milk and oil.
Stir this into the dry ingredients until moistened.
Grease the crockpot well and spread the batter evenly on the bottom.
In a saucepan, combine blueberries, water and the other half of the
divided sugar, bring to a boil and remove from heat.
Pour intocrockpot and cook on high for 2 hours, then turn off crockpot,
uncover and let set for 30 minutes before eating.
It will still be very warm after 30 minutes

note: This was doubled and intended for a 5 quart
crockpot, but I halved it.
To double for the 5 quart, pinches become 1/4 teaspoons.

4 eggs
3/4 cup oil

Mix all together well. Spray the inside of the crockpot with nonstick spray and pour the batter in. Cook on low for 6 hours. Serve with ice cream if desired. This makes a LOT of cake and it's very rich.

Crockpot Rice Pudding with Fruit

1/2 gallon milk*
1 cup uncooked rice
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cold margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt -- optional
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup dried apricots or peaches -- minced
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

*Use half nonfat and half whole milk or all nonfat for lower fat content. Can substitute evaporated milk for a very rich flavor.
The cooking time will vary greatly, anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours. The longer it cooks, the thicker it will be.
It is important to have the dried apricots minced.
Put all ingredients into the crockpot.
Stir to blend well.
Cover and cook on high for 1 1/2 hours; stir once after about an hour.
Or, cook on high for the first 30 minutes, turn to low and cook as long as desired.
Check after the first 2 hours of low cooking and stir.
If the rice is not absorbing the milk quickly enough, turn the crockpot up to high again.
Keep cover on at all times.
Crockpot temperatures vary widely among different brands.
Only experimentation can tell you the correct amount of time for cooking in your crockpot.
Rarely will a crockpot recipe fail, though, as the long, slow cooking process does not require precise timing.
