Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler

Peach desserts are definitely some of our favorites, so we decided to use them as a base for this recipe. We give you: slow cooker peach cobbler. This dish has only five essential ingredients and is absolutely delectable. Prep your peaches – using fresh when possible, but frozen or canned are just as yummy! – plop ‘em in the slow cooker, then cover them up with a box of yellow cake mix and some butter. The juices thicken and caramelize into perfection, and you’re left with a golden brown topping that is INSANELY good. It’s easy and wonderful and what are you waiting for?! Try it out and see how great it is for yourself! Click here for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Pineapple Spoon Cake

Okay, so are you wondering what exactly pineapple spoon cake is? You start with a regular, ol’ store-bought yellow cake mix, and then to that, you’re going to add all the necessary fixings to really spruce it up. Crushed pineapple to start – and make sure to save all the juices, since you’ll use those later – then shredded coconut and chopped pecans for a little tropical-flavored crunch.

Slow Cooker Coconut Cake

Want a cake that is moist and delicious? Then bake it in the slow cooker! Yes, once again, our trusty-dusty slow cooker works its magic, and we reap the benefits. Coconut cake is one of our favorites and while we can easily make this in the oven, there’s something fun about using the slow cooker. This recipe combines two of our favorite kitchen elements: the slow cooker and baking, so why not combine the two. We love the idea of using our kitchen tools in different ways, and baking in the slow cooker is pretty much genius! Here’s our recipe.
