Dessert In A Crock Pot? Count Me In!


Apple recipes are so simple to make.  All of them are similar and have lots of elements that go together well.  The best way to prep apples is with spices.  They really bring out the flavors of the apples.  My favorites for this recipe are nutmeg and cinnamon.  They give the perfect touch of spice while not overbearing.  They are sweet and wonderfully soft and the best dessert, EVER!

Check out what our friends over at Amanda’s Cookin’ had to say about this,

“If you’re looking for an easy dessert, this cake mix apple cobbler is as easy as “set it and forget it”. You’ll use the crock pot for this delicious treat, and using a cake mix as the base makes it convenient and simple.”

I absolutely agree. This is convenient, simple, yet still utterly delicious. The crock pot has become my best friend for making apple cobbler.



2 (20 oz) cans of apple pie filling (1 can if using a crock smaller than 4.5 quart)

1 Betty Crocker white cake mix

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

6 tablespoons Land O’ Lakes unsalted butter, melted

Cinnamon sugar (optional)

Vanilla ice cream (optional)



Empty both cans of apple pie filling into the crock. If you like, sprinkle apples with cinnamon sugar.

Mix cinnamon into the dry cake mix, then sprinkle dry cake mix mixture on top of the apples.

Spoon the melted butter onto the cake mix layer. Do not mix the butter with the cake mix. The moisture generated from the slow cooker will bake the cake.

Cook on high setting for 4 hours (or on low for 6 hours).

Spoon cobbler into dishes and serve topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.





Quick Tip: If you have the time, I recommend cooking on low.  It makes a huge difference!
