Dessert Recipes for Crockpots

Crockpots aren't just for meals! There's all kinds of desserts you can make with your crockpot. Two are listed below. Be sure to see our website for other crockpot recipes.


* 3 lbs. cooking apples

* 10 slices of bread, cubed (about 4 cups)

* 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

* 1/4 tsp. nutmeg

* 1/8 tsp. salt

* 3/4 c. brown sugar

* 1/2 c. butter or margarine, melted

Wash apples, peel, core, cut into eighths; place in bottom on crock.
Combine bread cubes, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, sugar, butter; toss
together. Place on top of apples in crock. Cover. Place crock into outer
shell. Cook on low setting 2 to 4 hours. Makes 6 to 8 servings.


* 3/4 cup dried apricots

* 1 cup flour

* 2 tsp baking powder

* 1/4 tsp baking soda

* 1/2 tsp salt

* 1/2 cup sugar

* 3/4 cup milk

* 1 egg, slightly beaten

* 1 Tbsp grated orange peel

* 1 Tbsp vegetable oil

* 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

* 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Dip a knife into flour and chop the apricots finely. Flour the knife
often to keep the cut up fruit from sticking together. Sift the remaining
flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar into a large bowl.
Combine the milk, egg, orange peel, and oil. Stir the flour mixture and
the whole wheat flour. Fold in the cut up apricots, any flour left on the
cutting block and the walnuts. Pour into a well greased,
floured baking unit. Cover and place on a rack in the slow cooker, but
prop the lid open a fraction with a toothpick or a twist of foil to let
excess steam escape. Cook on High for 4 to 6 hours. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
