Double Apple Cake

Posted on

I love apples and cake. Why not make it better by putting it in a crockpot? Win!!! I found this on MyRecipes and thought it sounded great. It gets better….under 250 calories per serving!!!!

Cooking spray
6.75 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup dried apple slices, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon powdered sugar (optional)

1. Coat a 5-quart round electric slow cooker with cooking spray. Line bottom of slow cooker with parchment paper. Place 2 (30-inch-long) strips of parchment paper in an X pattern under parchment paper liner in slow cooker. Coat parchment with cooking spray.

2. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, brown sugar, and next 6 ingredients (through cloves) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine applesauce and next 4 ingredients (through egg) in a small bowl. Add applesauce mixture to flour mixture, stirring until smooth. Stir in dried apple.

3. Pour batter into prepared slow cooker, spreading into an even layer. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until puffed and a wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean. Cut into wedges. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.

  1. I have some apples in the fridge I need to use. This looks yummy…just may have to try it. I’ve never made a cake in the crock pot.
