I was watching a show and they were talking about slow cooker cakes. I thought to myself, is there a way to do a slow cooker gluten-free cake? So I decided to try it.
It's my Slow Cooker Gluten Free Cinnamon Chocolate Cake.
Note: I indicated the products I used below for your convenience. But, if you use different gluten-free products you use, please feel free to use that and let me know how it goes.
1 stick of butter softened
⅔ cup water
2 teaspoon of Gluten Free almond extract or Gluten Free vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter (we used Simply Jif )
Betty Crocker Yellow Gluten Free Cake Mix
1-2 tablespoon of Cinnamon (use less if you don't want as much of a nutty flavor)
Use a Nonstick spray like Pam spray
2 tablespoon water
½ cup Nutella
½ cup peanut butter
Slow Cooker (oval)
If you use round, be sure to add time to the baking time as it will be thicker.
- Mix well the wet ingredients, 1 stick of butter softened, 3 eggs, ⅔ cup water, 2 teaspoon of almond or vanilla extract GF, 1 cup peanut butter (we used Simply Jif)
- Then lower the speed on the mixer and add the cake mix and cinnamon.
- Mix on high for 2 minutes or what it says on the packaging.
- Spray the slow cooker with a non-stick spray.
- Pour the mixed batter into the slow cooker and cover.
- Bake for 3 hours on low. Check the center to make sure it is cooked. If not, check back in a 15 minutes increments.
- IMPORTANT: After the center is cooked, take the entire porcelain holder off the heating element. Otherwise it may burn. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
- Turn over onto a plate and completely cool.
- To make the icing, add 2 tablespoon water, ½ cup Nutella, and ½ cup peanut butter to a bowl and mix well.
- Add to cooled cake.
- Serve with fresh fruit or a scoop of ice cream.
- Cut and enjoy.
