Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp
ground ginger
1/4 tsp
ground cloves
1/8 tsp
kosher salt
1/2 c
(1 stick) unsalted butter at room temperature
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 large
eggs
1 c
unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp
vanilla
confectioners sugar for serving

Directions Step-By-Step

1
1.Place a 15-inch piece of parchment paper in the bowl of a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, letting the excess come up the sides. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt.

2.Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then the applesauce and vanilla (the mixture will look curdled). Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated.
3
3.Transfer the batter to the prepared slow cooker and cook, covered, until set and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean, 2 to 2 1/2 hours on high.

4.Holding the parchment, transfer the cake to a rack and let cool for at least 15 minutes. Dust with the confectioners' sugar and serve with ice cream, if desired.
