A super simple and delicious way to make a sweet dish in your Crock Pot. While you cook down your apples the batter is being made. Put it all together and set the timer. What could be easier?
- 6 apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks (3 Granny Smith & 3 Honey Crisp
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1 cup of pumpkin puree
- Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter
- Whipped cream, optional
- Place the apples and sugar in a heavy bottom pot with ¼ cup of water over medium heat and cook them until they are soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes. Mash with a fork or potato masher and set aside. You should have 3 cups.
- Add the dry ingredients to a small bowl and combine with a whisk.
- Place the eggs in a medium size bowl and beat until foamy. Add the brown sugar, melted butter and pumpkin, mixing well. Add in the dry ingredients and beat on high speed for 2 minutes.
- Butter the bottom and sides of your crockpot and place the mashed apples on the bottom. Pour the batter on top and cover.
- Cook on high for 2 hours. Remove lid and cool slightly. Run a knife along the edge and flip over on a platter. Glaze with pumpkin butter and serve with whipped cream.
