  • 4 Granny Smith apples sliced
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup dairy free butter melted
  • 1 yellow cake mix 1 box, I use Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Classic Yellow Cake Mix
  • ¼ cup pecans chopped, optional


  • Use a wider slow cooker if you have one. That gives the cake more of a crumbly top surface. I used a 10" diameter slow cooker and one of those big oval ones would work too. If you have the regular size crockpot then it will work too.
  • Peel and slice the apples and drop them right into the crock~pot.
  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the apples.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon to coat all of the apples with the sugar mixture.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave for a few seconds. Set aside.
  • Pour the cake mix into a medium sized bowl.
  • Stir in the butter and mix well. I use my fingers at the end to 'pinch and roll' to help incorporate the butter evenly and get that fine crumbly texture.
  • Sprinkle half of the cake mix/vegan butter mixture over the apples. Stir in well.
  • Sprinkle the rest of the cake mixture over the top of the mixed apples. Do NOT mix in.
  • Cover and cook on low 2 to 3 hours.



Use a big spoon to serve into bowls. Sprinkle chopped pecans over the top if you like.
