November 13 Applesauce Cake

Most of the slow cooking we have been doing is of the traditional  type. Other than Crock Pot yogurt we have tried nothing other than dinner. I decided to change this. Audrey and Maurene love applesauce so I thought this recipe from Family Circle would be a good bet.

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
Coat slow cooker bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Place 1 long sheet of nonstick foil in bottom of slow cooker bowl, with ends hanging over handles. Whisk together flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside. Beat together butter and brown sugar on high speed for 1 minute. Beat in egg. Scrape down sides of bowl and, on low speed, beat in buttermilk (mixture will look curdled). Beat in applesauce. Add flour mixture to bowl and beat on low speed until combined. Spread batter into slow cooker. Place a clean dish towel over slow cooker then put cover on top. Cook on high for 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Use foil handles to lift cake out of slow cooker. Cut into slices and serve with caramel sauce, whipped cream and pecans.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Crack egg
  2. Help measure and add ingredients
  3. Operate stand mixer
  4. Help pour batter into slow cooker
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Help measure and add ingredients
  3. Hold bowl so Audrey can pour ingredients
The problem with this recipe was the towel that did not allow you to see the progress of the cake. We burned it in 2 hours. Burned it pretty bad. Once you cut the edges off and added caramel sauce it was not bad.
