Crock Pot Apple Cake
Apple pie, apple butter, applesauce, Apple computer... anything apple is good in my book! Last month I pinned this recipe for Vegan Slow Cooker Apple Pie Cake and was eager to give it a try. I had never made a cake in the crock pot before, but it seemed easy enough! (I was right. SO EASY.)
I decided to make it for a Frock Swap party a few weeks ago and it was a big hit! No leftovers! Nick was pretty bummed that he didn't get to try any, so I decided to make it again (uhh, actually 3 times now...) and it's gone over pretty well each time. Trust me, you're gonna want to make this one too.
Here's what you need! (Recipe adapted from Vegan in the Freezer)
- 4 Granny Smith apples
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup vegan butter (we use Earth Balance)
- 1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
- Crock pot (I used a 5 qt. size)
The ingredients above are all vegan-friendly, however, you could easily substitute the sugar, butter, and cake mix for non-vegan versions.
Here's what you do!
- Peel and slice apples and place directly in the crock pot.
- In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar. Pour on top of the apples and stir to coat the apples evenly.
- Measure out your butter and melt it in the microwave.
- In a large bowl, combine dry cake mix and melted butter. Stir well. The mixture should have a crumbly, doughy consistency.
- Sprinkle half of the cake mix into the apples and stir to combine.
- Sprinkle the rest of the cake mix on top of the apples but do NOT mix in.
- Cover and cook on low for 3 hours.
- Serve warm!
For added goodness, we've been eating this with some vanilla soy ice cream... DROOL. SO GOOD. Think you'll make it? Be sure to let us know if you do!
