Crock-Pot Raspberry Blueberry Muffins

Muffins in the Crock-Pot?!
This months Challenge for the Crock-Pot Ladies was making muffins in the Crock-Pot.

I have to say I am rather surprised this could be done and can't wait to
make them myself.

Prep Time: 15min
Cook Time: 3 hours
Yields: 10 large muffins

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Stick Unsalted Butter, Melted
3/4 Cups Whole Milk*
1 Large Egg
1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Mini-Chocolate Chips
3/4 Cup Raspberries
3/4 Cup Blueberries
Jumbo Muffin Cups with foil and paper.
  1. In a medium bowl, combine 1 3/4 cups of the flour, 1/2 cup of the sugar, the baking powder, and salt.
  2. Add the butter and combine.
  3. In a second bowl, mix together the milk, egg, and vanilla.
  4. Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until combined; the batter will be lumpy.
  5. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  6. Toss the berries with the remaining 1/4 cup flour in a bowl.
  7. Gently fold the berry mixture into the batter.
  8. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full.
  9. Place about 6 ounces water in bottom of crock-pot.
  10. Fold a piece of foil in half so that it can fit in the bottom of the crock and fold up edges making a rim so that the water will not be able to get on the foil. Spray with a little Pam.
  11. Place foil in crock, avoiding getting water on top and muffin cups on top of foil.
  12. You should be able to fit 5 jumbo muffin cups if you are using a 6.5 quart crock-pot.
  13. Sprinkle each muffin with a little of the remaining sugar.
  14. Add another folded piece of foil on top of those and place remaining muffin cups on top, spraying foil with Pam first.
  15. Sprinkle those muffins with a little sugar as well.
  16. Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 – 3 hours.
  17. Muffins are done when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  18. Let cool before trying to remove from crock.
The one thing I am discovering about making muffins in the crock is the will not have that “crown” you may be used to. I did a test batch with a boxed mix and those didn’t have the crown either.
You can also make the second layer of muffins separately either later or in a second crock.
