I loved the notes included with this slow cooker apple cake recipe. If they hadn’t have been there I would have panicked too. “When I first made this cake I was sure I should have used more flour, sugar and eggs. But I decided to see if the apples were juicy enough to hold things together and wind up with a dense and delicious finish. And it worked!!”
It really is mostly chopped apples coated with what seems like too little cake batter. But go with it!
I made a few changes from the original recipe. I substituted 3 tablespoons canola oil for 1/4 cup melted butter. Decreased the sugar from 1 cup to 3/4 cup. And decreased the chopped nuts from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup.
This slow cooker apple cake turned out better than I expected. It was sweet, but not too sweet, with a nice hint of cinnamon. Chock full of chopped apples, the texture was dense and moist.

Mom and Rod both gave it their enthusiastic approval. I will definitely be making this slow cooker apple cake again.
