Recently I cooked up a batch of Slow Cooker Apple Butter. This is the easiest thing ever to do. You start with unsweetened apple sauce and add a lot of spices and some sugar. That cooks all day in the slow cooker making your house smell amazing!
The apple butter is great spread on English muffins, biscuits or toast. It’s also fantastic baked into muffins.
Here’s what you’ll need:
The ingredients are all very basic. You probably have most of them in your pantry right now. This is my favorite kind of recipe. It’s quick, basic and perfect for making when you need a treat to go with your coffee or you want to bake something special for breakfast. I used the homemade apple butter, but you could use store bought.
