After just two hours in the slow cooker, this aromatic and delicious cake I created was ready to serve. Apples, cinnamon, maple, and nuts combine to make this decadently divine dessert. It is perfect for a winter holiday brunch or the grand finale for any dinner, no matter the season. To live up to its name, serve it with steaming cups of coffee!
