CROCKPOT/SLOW-COOKER PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE



 

Yes, you heard me right. A crockpot cake. Pretty awesome, isn’t it? Okay, let’s get started.


2  cups frozen pineapple, sliced (do not defrost)
1  tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon vanilla
1⁄4 cup brown sugar
Sprinkle of cinnamon
1 -9  ounce Jiffy white cake mix (or 1/2 package of a 2-layer size cake mix)
4  tablespoons melted butter


I used a large crockpot and coated the inside with cooking spray
 


Measure out the two cups of frozen fruit. I used pineapple for this recipe because I didn't have any other frozen fruit, but I'd only use peaches or the pineapple. Add them to a mixing bowl first, then add the tablespoon of cornstarch and the vanilla extract; mix them together and put the mixture into the bowl.
 
Now, sprinkle the brown sugar over top making sure to spread it out so it’s covering most of the fruit as best you can. Use a couple shakes of cinnamon over the sugar

Next up is the cake mix. You can use Jiffy or half a box of regular cake mix. Make sure to break up any lumps. You don’t want to bite into the cake and wind up with a mouth full of cake flour dust or worse yet, a paste ball. Eww.

Melt the butter in a measuring cup and pour it right over the top. Cover the mixture with the lid; set the slow-cooker on high and let it cook for 3 to 3 ½ hours.

 

And when it’s done. Let it cool slightly. Now, unplug the crockpot and keep the lid on until you're ready to serve it. Understand that this will not come out looking like it's been baked in the cake pan, but trust me, that doesn't matter. When you're ready to serve it, scoop out a serving onto a dessert plate, add a scoop of ice cream. 4-6 servings of good old yumminess!!!

 Now, wait for it . . . wait for it!  BAM! You've just been crowned  "Chef Julia Wild!"
