As we move into the colder darker drearier seasons of the year, we start spending more time in the kitchen than at the beach. Nothing seems to make a home feel like it is preparing for the holidays like the smell of baking. But sometimes you just do not have the time to labor over a kitchen stove for hours.
Luckily, we have found the most amazing apple cobbler recipe ever! It only takes three ingredients, a crockpot and a few minutes of prep time. And we are going to share it with you here, now.
To make this seasonal crowd pleaser, all you need is two cans of apple pie filling, one box of vanilla cake mix, and one stick of butter. The only kitchen appliance you will need is a crock pot.
To start, open the cans of apple pie filling and place them into the crock pot. Then, open the cake mix and pour it over the top of the filling. Finally, melt the butter and then pour it evenly over the top. Now, simply set the crock pot on high and walk away. In about four hours, you will taste one of the most delicious apple cobblers you have ever tried. And your friends and family will be blown away. For an added touch of wow, serve the cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This recipe started us to thinking about some of the other great crockpot recipes we have tried, and we thought we would share another seasonal smash with you here.
Since we are on the subject of desserts, we found this great recipe for another classic fruit dish: Peach cobbler. See easy it is how a can of peaches, and just three other ingredients can effortlessly transform into a the piece de resistance of any summer meal.
To make this awesome dessert you will need a slow cooker, two twenty one ounce cans of peaches, one box of vanilla cake mix, eight ounces unsalted butter (cut into small pieces), a third of a cup of walnuts, and some vanilla ice cream to top.
Place the peaches into the slow cooker, then add the cake mix, butter, and walnuts. Then set the cooker on high, and let cook for two to two and a half hours.
To serve, scoop out a serving spoon’s worth of the cobbler into a ramekin or small bowl, and then top with the ice cream.
Oh…yes. That is it. This recipe is so simple and delicious, that there really is no excuse not to serve it at every barbecue and potluck next summer. It will become your signature dessert, and everyone will love you for it. What more could you ask for in life?
After the apple and peach cobbler recipes, we will never look at our slow cooker the same way again. It has become our go to appliance of choice for amazing desserts that are sure to please any crowd in every season..
