Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Dump Cake

Slave admits to feeling guilty when fixing a great desert or cookies only to find many friends can not enjoy because of diabetes. Every year more strides are being made against this once deadly disease. Until then we have to modify how and what we eat. No Big Deal. Slave was asked why a “dump” type cake in the slow cooker? Well, it is an option if your oven is busy, it doesn't heat up the house or at least the kitchen, and it is part of our “Rock Around the Crock” features!

You only need a few ingredients and your slow cooker to assemble this sweet treat. I usually don't mention brand names but since this bakes, you will need a sweetener that can handle the heat. Read the labels and find one that you like and can be substituted evenly with normal sugar, or adjust according to the package directions.

6 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
¼ C Splenda non sugar sweetener
1 ½ tsp cinnamon, divided
1 box yellow cake mix
½ C quick oats
1 stick butter (or substitute) sliced into ½ pieces

Wipe out the slow cooker and spray it well!
Wash, peel, and chop the apples. Placing them in bowl under a damp paper towel to keep from turning brown as you work.

Place apples in bottom of crock pot. Sprinkle with Splenda and ½ tsp cinnamon.

Place cake mix in larger bowl. Add oats and remaining cinnamon. Mix with a fork and break apart any large lumps. Sprinkle over the apples. 

Place slices of butter on top.
Do Not Stir!

Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours.


To serve: Scoop right out of cooker with a large metal serving spoon.
Some sugar-free ice milk goes well with this!

Here is a rare recording of Louie Prima:

So honored to be allowed to be Master Indy's slave and to serve Him


To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
