This is a rhubarb bake. I am cooking it right now, in fact. The first step is in the crockpot, then you bake it in the oven:

You take 1 - 2 long stalks rhubarb, dice and place in crockpot.

Then dice 1 1/2 to 2 Fuji applies, put into crock

1 orange with juice and part of rind into crockpot - (later you will remove the rind)
also
about 1/2 cup raisins, then add:
3/4 cup sugar (white or brown)
1 cinnamon stick
2 whole cloves
1 whole allspice (can be omitted if its too strong)

Slow cook all the above in the crockpot (mixed well) on low for 3 to 4 hours.

When crockpot time is up, remove the orange rind and whole spices - then spoon into a baking dish that will fit.

Combine 1/4 cup margarine, 1/3 cup sugar, and 1/3 cup flour and sprinkle over ingredients in baking dish - bake in oven then at 400 for 20 to 25 min.

I hope its ok since step #2 is baking in the oven - this isn't "just" a crockpot recipe. You can adjust this to your taste, and also I adjust a little for altitude since I live at 8,500 ft.

It's a dump cake recipe from dutch oven cooking:

1 Can pie fruit (if you really like fruit use 2 cans)
1/2 can soda pop
1 cake mix spread dry across the top
1 stick butter cut up across the top
cover top of crockpot with a tea towel then the lid

Usually takes about 2.5 to 3 hrs, but watch it as the pots cook differently.

Flavor combinations:
cherries, coke, semi-sweet choc pieces, devil's food cake (clearly death by chocolate, but usually makes my new 10 year old scouts a dutch oven convert)

peaches, sprite, yellow cake (my girl boy scouts - it's a BSA coed program- have one many a contest with this one, but more dates with the first one)

apples, sprite, spice cake or gingerbread

pineapple, sprite, yellow cake

bananas, sprite, spice cake

bananas, choc. chips, sprite, yellow cake

Crockpot Bread Pudding - Makes 6 servings

I used my 3.5 quart slow cooker

8 slices bread cubed - I used cinnamon raisin bread
4 eggs - I used 1 cup of eggbeaters
2 cups of milk
1/4 cup sugar - I used Splenda
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
1/2 cup raisins -(use only 1/4 cup if using raisin bread) I put in dried cherries
1/2 tsp cinnamon - I put in about 2 teaspoons or maybe a tablespoon as we love cinnamon

Sauce
2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine
2 Tablespoons of flour
1 Cup of water
3/4 Cup of Sugar
1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Place bread cubes in greased slow cooker.

2. Beat together eggs and milk. Stir in sugar, butter, raisins, and cinnamon. Pour over bread and stir.

3. Cover and cook on High for 1 hour. Reduce heat to low and cook 3 - 4 hours, or until thermometer reaches 160 degrees.

4. Make sauce just before pudding is done baking.
Begin by melting butter in saucepan. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add water, sugar, and vanilla. Bring to a boil. Cook stirring constantly for 2 minutes, or until thickened.

5. Serve sauce over warm bread pudding.

I made this for potluck once before and am doing so again next week for bosses day. It's a crockpot cake! SO DELICIOUS & SIMPLE!!! 3-5 ingredients depending on how fancy you want to get...

I doubled the recipe and it was gone without a crumb to spare.

All you need is:

2 cans of pie filling (any flavor..I used cherry before and am going to try strawberry this time)
1 stick of butter
1 box of cake mix (any flavor...I think chocolate works best)

If you want to add a little extra flavor, add a splash of vanilla.

Use a crockpot liner for easy clean up. I still sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Dump both cans of the filling in the bottom. If adding vanilla do so now. Then sprinkle dry cake mix over filling. Melt the stick of butter and pour over cake mix. When I served mine up I grated a little chocolate over it. It can also be served with ice cream. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
