Slow Cooker Applesauce Spice Cake

This is another one of those recipes that's all over the Internet ... probably because it's so good and so easy to make.  Of course I've had to adjust it a bit for the almond and coconut four, but this just makes it that much more delicious as far as I'm concerned. It's also another way for you to use that lovely rosy applesauce I showed you how to make a couple of days ago.  (This photo is from

Ingredients :

-  1 cup of almond flour
-  1/2 cup of coconut flour
-  1 tablespoon of baking powder
-  1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
-  1 1/2 teaspoons of ground ginger
-  1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves
-  a pinch of sea salt
-  1/2 a cup of butter at room temperature
-  3/4 cup of coconut sugar, honey or maple syrup (Coconut sugar is best here because it gives more of that brown sugar flavour, but if you don't have it the other options will work as well.)
-   3 large eggs
-  1 cup of applesauce
-  1 teaspoon of vanilla

Check Amazon for any hard-to-find ingredients.

Directions :

  • Place a 15 inch piece of parchment paper in the bowl of your slow cooker, letting the excess come up the sides.  You don't have to do this.  It just makes it easier to remove. If you prefer, just use some of the butter to grease the sides.
  • In a large bowl mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, spices and salt.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the butter with the sugar in a large bowl until it's light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time, then the appesauce and vanilla.  (The mixture will look curdled.)
  • Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture a bit at a time, mixing until just incorporated.
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook until set and a wooden toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.  This will take about 2 to 2 1/2 hours on high.
  • Holding the parchment, transfer the cake to a rack and let it cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting. Alternatively just let it cool in the cooker.

To serve you can dust this with coconut icing sugar or serve it with ice cream.
