Ingredients

CAKE BATTER

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, about 3 cups, (or any cooking apple), peeled and chopped.

PUDDING MIXTURE

  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider or juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

WHIIPPED CREAM TOPPING (OPTIONAL)

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

Spray a large slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.

CAKE BATTER

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Using a pastry blender or two forks, cut the butter in, until the mixture resembles small peas.  Add the milk and vanilla and stir just until moistened.  Spread the batter evenly in the bottom of the prepared slow cooker.  Sprinkle the chopped apples over the batter.

PUDDING MIXTURE

  1. To a small bowl, add the apple cider or juice, sugar, cinnamon, melted butter and vanilla.  Mix just until combined and pour the batter evenly over the apples and cake batter.  DO NOT STIR!
  2. Cover with the crockpot lid and cook on high for 2 1/2 hours.  Check apples with a knife or fork to see if they’re tender enough.  Cook for an additional 1/2 hour if necessary.  Mine were very tender after 2 1/2 hours.
  3. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  4. Refrigerate leftovers and re-warm later in a microwave.

WHIPPED CREAM TOPPING (OPTIONAL)

  1. Add whipping cream to a mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or use a hand mixer.  Whisk on medium speed until whipping cream starts to slightly thicken.  Add the powdered sugar and whisk on high for a few seconds until the whipping cream forms soft peaks.  Serve immediately or refrigerate.
