Apple Crisp in the Slow Cooker

I’m on a roll with slow cooked desserts.  This apple crisp is an adaptation of my Apple Crinkle.

I decided to give it a whirl in the slow cooker and it turned out beautifully.  I dressed it up a bit with a handful of dried cranberries and chopped pecans.

Apple Cider Cake

We’ve already covered the beauty of a dressed up cake mix in last week’s Ingredient Spotlight. The recipe for this cake continues that theme.

I almost named it Apple Cider Donut Cake, because it reminds me of them.  The cake is moist, with a whisper of apple flavor.  It tastes wonderful with a glass of apple cider. [Read more…]
