Slow cooker apple cinnamon raisin bread

Slow cooker apple cinnamon raisin bread(July 3, 2013) As part of our new slower cooker try-outs, we decided to slow cook a banana bread from Moms with Crockpots but the bananas had gotten moldy so plan B it was, apple sauce instead, cinnamon and raisins.

When checking if it was cooked with a wooden skewer (toothpick was too small) we removed the lid straight not to wet the bread with the lid condensation. We left it to rest for an hour with lid on so it wouldn’t dry out and keep warm for later.

It’s not the best looking bread but some simple vanilla icing could solve that turning it more into a cake and be very tasty! We had it just like that and it was awesome and very moist.

Below is a copy of our recipe, for you to print if you’d like, from the modified original, which we will still try!

Total time: 

Serves: 8-12
 

Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar (lightly packed)
  • 2 eggs well beaten
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup cinnamon
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ to ¾ cup apple cubes (peeled)

Instructions
  1. Line the slow cooker with parchment paper for quick/easy clean up but it will not give you a perfect bread, you will have the paper folds indented in it. If you want a perfect round/oval just grease and flour the inside of your slow cooker.
  2. Mix the butter and sugar with the hand mixer until well blended.
  3. Add the eggs, vanilla and apple sauce, mix well.
  4. Mix together in another bowl, the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.
  5. Add to the first mixture slowly while mixing until well blended.
  6. Add raisins and apple cubes in the mix, folding them in gently until it’s well blended.
  7. Pour into the lined/greased slow cooker.
  8. Cover and cook on high 2-3 hours (we left ours 3 hours) then turn it off to let cool.
  9. When cooled, pull out on the paper or turn it upside down to get the bread out onto a serving plate.
