Cranberry Slow Cooker Cake

Want your house to smell amazing?

Want your tummy to be filled with soft, lightly orange scented, cranberry filled deliciousness?




Cranberry Slow Cooker Cake
What's In It:
1 c butter
1 1/2 c sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 t vanilla
zest from 1 orange
1 t baking powder*
1/2 t salt
3 c all purpose flour 
12 oz cranberries

What To Do With It:
Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time.  Stir in vanilla, then orange zest, baking powder, and salt. Add flour.  
Fold in cranberries by hand.
Cut a piece of parchment or wax paper to fit in the bottom of your slow cooker.  Add dough to the slow cooker.  This is some thick dough, so you're going to have to smash it down - I used my hands, you can do what'ch'ya feel. 

Cover and cook on HIGH in slow cooker for 3 hours or until a toothpick comes out clean.  I cooked exactly 3 hours and the bottom of my cake was a little more done that I'd like, so I'm gonna try 2hr 45min next time.  

Allow the cake to cool in the slow cooker.  Loosen the sides with a knife and then turn out onto a plate. 


  1. Seriously? I didn't believe it, so I had to pop over. So simple and delicious looking. I am making this tomorrow. Thank you for sharing at our Ladies Night! XO Donna

    1. I'm so excited to hear how it goes! I hope you LOVE it! :)

  2. How much flour? Don't see it listed in the ingredients. Also, what size crockpot? Thanks! :)

  3. Ack! I just added the flour's 3 cups. I used an oval 7.2qt

    Sorry for the error!

  4. Not sure if I just missed it but is that 3 hours on high or 3 hours on low? It sounds like a great cake!

  5. Holy Honey...I must have been out of my mind on a sugar high when I wrote this post. GOOD-NESS! I am so sorry for all the errors, it should be on HIGH.

  6. Just curious, why the asterisk on the 1 tsp Baking Powder?

    1. Oh - I use homemade baking powder by mixing two parts cream of tartar and one part baking soda and then just substitute an equal volume of the mixture for baking powder. Using regular baking powder will work wonderfully as well. :-)
