Tips for Making Apple Pudding Cake
This recipe is for people who love apple desserts but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. It’s also a great option for those who are looking for a gluten-free dessert.
I recommend using a very large slow cooker, so you can make your cake in one batch. I like to use Gala apples because they’re tart and sweet at the same time, but feel free to experiment with different varieties!

Apple Variations for the Perfect Slow-Cooked Dessert
Apple variations for the perfect slow-cooked dessert
Cooking apples provide a sweet, tart, and juicy flavor to the slow-cooked dessert. The key is to use a combination of varieties that will provide a balance of flavors and textures. Applesauce recipes are an excellent way to use up leftover apples, as well as an easy way to add some extra sweetness and moisture to baked goods like muffins or cakes.
Apples can also be used in other ways such as pies, crisps, tarts, or cobblers.
Picking the right apple for baking is not always an easy task. There are so many varieties available in supermarkets that it can be difficult to know which ones will work best for your recipe. . Below, we have put together a list of good apple types for baking.
Granny Smith apples – These are tart and often yellow, but they have a good balance of sweetness and acidity. The best option for pie recipes.
Braeburn apples – These are more tart than Granny Smiths and have a great texture with an ample amount of crunch. They work well in meringues and pastries like pies and tarts.
Golden Delicious apples – These are more sweet than tart and have a nice, deep yellow color. They have a more aromatic smell and a good balance of crunch and sweetness. They’re best for baking purposes when used in desserts with chocolate or caramel flavors.
Rome apples – These apples are slightly sweeter than Granny Smiths but still work well in pies, tarts, cobblers, crisps, or meringues because they hold their shape well during baking. They have a nice floral aroma and a fresh taste. The most important thing to remember when cooking with apples is that they release a lot of liquid while they cook. Make sure you have enough extra flour or cornstarch on hand to keep the pastry from becoming soggy and messy.
Slow Cooker Apple Pudding Cake
- 2 cups (500 g) all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup (160 g) plus 1/4 cup (60 g) granulated sugar, divided
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup (125 g) unsalted butter, cold
- 1 cup (250 ml) milk
- 4 apples, peeled, cored, and diced
- 1 ½ cups (370 ml) freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1/2 cup (125 g) clear honey
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
Cut cold butter into flour mixture until you have coarse crumbs. Stir in milk until moistened.
Grease the bottom and sides of the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon batter into the bottom of the slow cooker and spread out evenly. Place the diced apples over the batter evenly.
In a medium-size bowl, combine orange juice, honey, remaining sugar, melted butter, and ground cinnamon. Whisk well. Pour honey mixture over apples.
Place a paper towel over the opening of the crock pot. Cover slow cooker and cook on high-heat setting for 2-3 hours or until apples are tender.

This was a hit. Made it yesterday, Thanksgiving. I only used 4 packets of honey, since that’s all I had. I had small apples from a relatives backyard, so I just cut up what looked like a good amount. Made it before dinner, so I had everyone sneaking a bite here and there. Only had a little left, so ate it today, cold. Was even better, but then I always like apple pie cold. I will definitely make it again, especially since the relative gave me a bag of apples to bring home. Will make it with peaches too! Every thought it was perfect, even though I used less honey.
