Slow Cooker Apple Cake

Since aquiring (thanks next door neighbours who left their place in a stinky shambles, but also left a lot of free stuff for the rest of the building) a round 6 quart cooker I’m able to try out some cake/dessert recipes that I’ve wanted to try – the only pan I have that will fit in my oval cooker is a tiny loaf pan – this round one fits 4-5 cup bowls/circular casseroles.

So I’m trying out an apple cake!

Slow Cooker Apple Cake
1 cup flour
3/4 cups brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped fine
2 tsp vanilla
6 Tbsp. water+2 Tbsps. ground flax(refrigerated for 1 hour)-or 2 eggs

Mix together dry ingredients then add in apple pieces and stir to coat.

Beat eggs (or flax egg substitue) and vanilla together.

Fold egg mixture into dry ingredients.  I had to add about a 1/4 cup of water to incorporate all the dry ingredients.

Scrape batter into a well greased 4 cup casserole dish or bowl.

Batter in the baking dish.

Cook on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

This was super-easy and quick (except the worry-free cooking time) and worked perfectly – I will definitely be baking more often with this new round slow cooker.  The cake is small but a perfect size for 2 people who don’t eat sweets a lot.  One family would probably finish it for a desert.

Finished cake!
