Course: Dessert
Servings: 8 people

Ingredients

  • 20 oz cinnamon swirl crumb cake mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 serving instant French vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flour

Instructions

  • Mix together your cake mix (without the swirl packet), sour cream, pudding mix, water and oil until well blended.
  • Spoon batter (it will be thick) into a slightly greased 6-quart crock pot (I used Sir Hamilton, my Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker)
  • Sprinkle reserved swirl packet on top of your batter
  • Using a spatula, swirl in the packet
  • Put 2-4 paper towels under the lid of your crock pot, cover and cook on high for 1 1/2-2 hours
  • About 30 minutes before your cake is done, mix together your brown sugar, cinnamon and flour and sprinkle on top
  • Cook the remaining 30 minutes uncovered

Notes

  • While this batter would fit in a 4-quart crock pot, use a 6-quart crock pot. I tried it in a 4-quart and the sides burnt before the center was done since this is such a thick batter.
  • You can decide how much cinnamon you want in the topping. We love cinnamon, so we like it more on the 2 tablespoon side, but it is completely up to you.
  • The paper towels under the lid keep the condensation that gathers on the lid from dripping down on your cake.
  • After you swirl in the swirl packet, your cake is going to look all crazy. Don't worry. That is normal, and the end product is delicious!
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
