{Crock Pot} Apple Pie Coffee Cake


It's hard to believe that my crock pot was just sitting in the cabinet collecting dust just a few months ago.  For some reason, I never gave it a chance.  Now, I used it at least once to twice a week.  Mostly, just for main dishes, but, the occasional dessert tossed in there too. 



Speaking of desserts...
Warm apples and cinnamon! One of the best combinations for fall. This cake is perfect for this time of year. Serve it warm plain or with a bit of ice cream or whipped topping. It will be a perfect addition to a holiday meal.
{A great alternative for this..use any flavor pie filling you love or you can add some chopped nuts for some extra fun}

Adapted From


Ingredients:
for apple mixture:
1-20oz apple pie filling
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 TBSP brown sugar

for cake batter:
2-9oz yellow cake mix (Jiffy works well)
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
3 TBSP butter
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:
Spray crock pot with non stick cooking spray or butter generously.   In a mixing bowl, combine apple mixture.  Spread 1/2 of apple mixture on the bottom of crock pot.   In another mixing bowl, mix cake batter ingredients well.  Spread 1/2 of the cake batter on top of the apple mixture.  Then, top with remaining apple mixture and finish with remaining better.  Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours. When baked, turn off crock pot and let cake cool with lid ajar for 20 minutes.  To serve, invert cake onto a serving plate. Retrieve any apple left on the cake and spoon on top.

  12. Is there a reason you use 2 9-oz cake mixes...? Wouldn't 1 18-oz mix work? Just checking... ;-)
