We know our readers love old fashioned recipes, and we’re always looking for innovative ways to present them to you. We’re excited to announce a brand new recipe from AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes.com’s Test Kitchen! It might be hard to believe, but one can “bake” old fashioned pineapple upside down cake using cake mix… and using the slow cooker! We tackled the seemingly impossible feat of a slow cooker pineapple upside down cake recipe this past week in our Test Kitchen and it was delicious! In fact, I ate two slices (shhh!).
Slow cooker baking is quite easy, and a helpful technique during summer months when you don’t want your oven to heat up the house. In fact, we have an entire free eCookbook devoted to slow cooker cake mix recipes: Slow Cooker Cake Mix Recipes: 16 To-Die-For Recipes with Cake Mix.
Below, we’ll give you a preview of the slow cooker pineapple upside down cake we prepared this past week:
Betty’s Slow-Cooker Pineapple Upside Down Cake
It’s clunky to leave out a lot of appliances in the kitchen. As many of us use blenders during the summer to prepare smoothies, and even ice cream, a blender might be something that’s already hanging out on your counter. As such, instead of using a hand mixer to blend the cake batter, I tested out Blendtec’s Designer 725 High-Speed Blender, which we’ll be offering as a GIVEAWAY on AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes.com from June 08, 2014 through July 05, 2014.
