Slow Cooker Time LOW3 hr

Cooking Vessel Size5- to 7-quart oval slow cooker


  • 3/4 cup butter, at room temperature (Judges 5:25)
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar (Jeremiah 6:20)
  • 3 eggs (Jeremiah 17:11)
  • 1 3/4 cup flour (Exodus 29:2)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (Luke 13:21)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (Kings 10:10)
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch allspice
  • 1 pinch salt (Leviticus 2:13)
  • 1/2 cup water (Genesis 24:17)
  • 1 cup raisins (Samuel 30:12)
  • 1/2 cup dried figs, chopped (Jeremiah 24:5)
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds (Genesis 43:11)
  • 1 golden delicious or granny smith apple, chopped into small pieces (Song of Solomon 2:5)
  • For the Icing:
  • 2 tablespoons softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon milk
  • Vanilla extract, to taste


  1. Prepare your large oval slow cooker by cutting an oval shape of parchment paper to fit in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place parchment in bottom of slow cooker and then spray the sides of the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. Using a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Add the dry mixture alternately with the water to creamed mixture, beating the entire time.

  3. Fold in raisins, figs, apples and almonds. Mix well. Pour into the prepared slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for about 3 hours (some slow cookers will take longer and some will take shorter). To check for doneness: insert a toothpick into the center of the cake and if it comes out clean the cake is done. Let cool for 20 minutes while preparing icing.

  4. Use a mixer to mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla together until creamy and smooth.

  5. Gently run a sharp knife around the edges of the cake and invert over onto a serving plate until cake drops out. Discard the parchment paper.

  6. Use a small spatula to ice the cake. Serve with milk and enjoy!

This looks like a really nice dessert to have when company comes over. My daughter is allergic to the nuts, so I would have to use peanuts or sunflower seeds instead, but I think it would still be delicious. Have you ever substituted an ingredient for something else in this recipe?

Why is there no print button????? Pain in the neck looking for one!
