Ingredients

Brown Sugar Mixture

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Cake Batter

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 Granny Smith apples peeled and chopped, mixed with 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-3 tbsp milk depending on thickness desired

Instructions

  • Generously grease a 6 cup Bundt pan. 
  • In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside. 
  • In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time and continue to mix. Add vanilla. 
  • In another bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Add the dry mixture to the wet, and stir until blended. 
  • Add the milk and beat until smooth. 
  • Sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture into the bottom of the Bundt pan. Shake it a bit to get some of the sugar up the center post and on the sides of the pan as well. 
  • Add 1/2 of the apples on top of the brown sugar mixture. DO NOT STIR. 
  • Cover the apples with 1/2 of the cake batter, being sure to distribute it evenly around the pan and smooth it out. Repeat the layers. Cover the pan with foil.

  • Place the trivet in the bottom of the Crockpot Express and pour in 1 cup of water. Using a sling, lower the pan onto the trivet. Close and lock the lid, and switch the steam release valve to the closed position. 
  • Press "Dessert" and set the time for 35 minutes (low pressure.) When the cooking time is up, do a quick pressure release and carefully remove the pan from the CPE with the sling. Let cool on a baking rack for at least 10 minutes.
  • After cooling, flip the pan over onto a plate to remove the cake. Prepare the glaze and drizzle all over the top of the cake. Serve with vanilla ice cream for an extra dose of deliciousness!
