Don’t throw out the bag of apples still on your counter that have lost their tartness. Bake them. No, not in the oven. In the slow cooker.

How do you bake apples in the slow cooker?

Okay, maybe the slow cooker doesn’t have a baking selection. You can, however, use the appliance to cook apples that taste like they were baked.

This recipe is good for one or two people. If baking for one, eat a serving and store the other in the fridge for later.

Stay-at-home moms and wives can prepare this apple dessert and have it ready within four hours if cooked on high. Otherwise, cook it on low so it’s hot and ready as soon as you get home from work.

Oven-Bake Your Apples

Oven-bake your apples in a pie or cobbler if you prefer. Make an autumn apple dump cake.

Easy Way to Make Apple Dump Cake

The easy way to make an Apple dump cake is use apples instead of the pumpkin in Kitchen Southern Hospitality’s yummy Pumpkin Pecan Dump Cake.

The Pumpkin Pecan Dump Cake Recipe includes a can of pumpkin. When you use fresh apples, cut them into small chunks and put them into a greased pan. Next, follow the pumpkin dump cake recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 bag Small Organic Apples
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Honey (any kind of honey will do) Use 2 Tablespoons for less calories.
  • 4 teaspoons Cinnamon Or shake liberally like I did.
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  1. Peel then slice the apples. Put the apple slices into the slow cooker. Add the cinnamon, honey, and water. Put the lid on, and cook for four hours in the slow cooker on high (or for eight hours on low). If cooking all day, add another 1/2 cup of water.

Recipe Notes

The nutrition values are estimated, not exact. You can cut a large portion of the calories out by eliminating the honey or using only half of what the recipe calls for.

The two servings were great for my 21-Day Fix eating plan. However, I could have cut back on the amount of honey used. Those calories can add up quickly. I saved the juice and used it as a sweetener for green tea the next day. Amazing!

Slow-cooker apples as well as apple dump cake definitely make wonderful fall desserts. Of course, eating a fresh apple every day is always good advice – may help keep the doctor away.

  1. I just wanted to let you know that I cooked these all day on low, and we thought that the extra 1/2 cup of water was unnecessary. We had so much cooking liquid. I’m glad for your idea to make apple cinnamon sweet tea. It was delicious.

I'd love to hear from you! Leave comments below:
