Do you have fresh apples sitting around and want to use those instead of a can of apple pie filling? You are in luck! Cris made up this yummy Homemade Apple Pie Filling in her crock pot!
My store had salted caramel bits in the baking aisle. If your grocery store only has regular caramel bits, that will work too.
Since this is a cake in a crock pot, you will want to fold up 6-8 paper towels and put them under your lid to keep the moisture that gathers on the lid from dripping down on to your cake.
I pulled out good ol’ Cera (my 6 Quart Crock Pot with Ceramic Coated Pot). I find that using a 6-quart crock pot for cakes gives it the room to rise and cooks it through to the center really well. There are a few cakes where Cassie (my 9 x13 casserole slow cooker made by Crock Pot) has done really well, but I have also had a lot of flops with cakes in the casserole crock, so I usually just start out with one of my 6-quart crock pots.

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.
