Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour or all purpose flour (about 125g)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar about 150g
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or regular milk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large baking apples peeled and diced

Sauce

  • 1 cup brown sugar about 200g
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water

Instructions

  • Lightly grease a 3-4 quart slow cooker (mine is a 2.5qt casserole slow cooker, so it has a wider base).
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour, ¾ cup brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon until combined.
  • Stir in buttermilk, oil, and vanilla until smooth (will be thick). Stir in apples and spread in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • For the sauce, whisk together 1 cup brown sugar and corn starch until combined. Sprinkle over cake batter and spread evenly.
  • Melt butter in hot water and pour over brown sugar in slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 2.5-3 hours until cake is set (will be moist) on top. Sauce will be thin at first -- for a thicker sauce, let sit for 10-20 minutes before serving.
