Crockpot Apple Cake

We’re big apple fans at our house, but occasionally I stock up a little TOO much. Needing to clean out my crisper a little, I wanted to make a delicious apple dessert, but not one that had a ton of unnecessary fat. I came across this super easy Crockpot Apple Cake recipe (really, what’s easier than throwing stuff in a crockpot and leaving it), and had to give it a try. It turned out delicious, especially with a dollop of whipped cream on top!

Crockpot Apple Cake

1 cup Flour
1 cup Sugar
2 tsp. Baking powder
2 tsp. Ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. Salt
4-6 Medium apples, chopped
2 Eggs
2 tsp. Vanilla
½ cup Walnuts, if desired

In bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir in apples, coating lightly.

In separate bowl, mix eggs and vanilla. Pour into apple mixture. Stir until just moistened.

Spoon into a lightly greased crockpot. Cover and bake on high about 3 hours.

Serve warm (although my hubby likes it cold, too) with whipped cream or ice cream on top. Feel free to add a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired.

Notes: See, I told you it was super easy! Add more or less apple, depending on preference. We did six, and there was a happy balance of cake and apple pieces, but that’s just us.

    • Thanks so much, Melissa, I look forward to having you here! I was nervous about a slow-cooker dessert before this, too, but it was WONDERFUL. Plus…easy…bonus!

  • I substituted fresh strawberries for apples and left out the nuts – amazing. Hubby loved it. Going to try frozen cherries next.

    • I love strawberries, so that sounds fabulous! I’m so glad it works with many things 😀

  • Hi, I am always trying to fine new recipes to make in myslow cooker. I have made apple sauce but never a cake I until now. My husband and I loves apple cake and is looking forward to trying this recipe of yours. So in 2 hours and 54 minutes we will see if this is a method we will try in the future. Thank you for sharing this with the world. I will check back with the results. My slower is about big one so I hope 3 hours will be okay. Thank you!

  • I love this recipe. The cake turned out great only had three granny smith apples left so I just used what I had. It was more than enough apples. I think six would have been too much. Next time I will double the cake mix part of the recipe, I would like to have a little more cake than apple ratio. I have a strong feeling I will be making this cake again by mid week, it will be gone once my husband get to it. :-). Mmmmm I wonder how it would taste with pears.

  • Yes it worked perfectly. I think next time I will double the cake mixture and keep the apple amount at three. This way we have a higher cake to apple ratio. Only have a few pieces left do I will be making this cake again this week.
