Slow Cookers are arguably one of the world’s greatest inventions. When you need something easy, they are number one. If you want supper ready by a certain time but have to spend the day at work, the slow cooker makes life easier.
Slow cookers can be your best friend if you want spectacular desserts. Try these ideas and find some new favorites. They are quick to prepare and delicious to eat. One of my favorite recipes to cook in the slow cooker is Apple Crumble.
Apple crumble is an absolute classic. A favorite dessert of many, it also has many health benefits due to ingredients such as rolled oats and of course, apples. It is delicious for a dessert on both a balmy summer evening and a crisp winter night. This dessert is great as is, or served with ice cream or whipped cream.
* 4-5 peeled apples, cut into slices
* 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/2 cup flour (use whole wheat for a boost of fibre)
* 3/4 cup oats, rolled
* 1 tsp ground cinnamon
* 1 tsp ground nutmeg
* 4 tbsp softened butter
* Raisins, chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Spread butter along bottom and sides of slow cooker, and lay apples in the bottom. Mix sugar, flour, rolled oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Use knife to cut butter into the mixture. Sprinkle the flour mixture over the apples. Set slow cooker to low and leave for 3-5 hours.
