  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 2 Gala apples cut into 1 inch cubes


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Lightly coat the inside of a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. If using an InstantPot or if your slow cooker has the "Saute" function: add 3 tablespoon of coconut oil to the slow cooker once hot, add the cubed apples and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. If your slow cooker doesn't have the "Saute" option, cook the apples in a medium skillet on medium - low heat for 5 minutes, and add to the slow cooker after that.
  4. In a medium bowl stir together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add milk and melted coconut oil, stir just until combined. Spoon batter evenly into the prepared cooker over the apples.
  5. In a medium saucepan combine the water, apple sauce, brown sugar, and butter. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve brown sugar. Reduce heat to low and boil gently, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Carefully pour the sauce over the batter in the cooker.
  6. Cover and cook on low-heat setting or on Slow Cooker setting if using an InstantPot for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until a thermometer inserted in the center of cake registers 200F.
  7. To serve, spoon pudding cake into individual dessert dishes top with ice cream and caramel sauce. If desired, garnish with cinnamon sticks.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
