  • 1 box Yellow Cake mix 432 grams
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 5 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 teaspoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla


  • Line the bottom and sides of a 5-quart or 6-quart oval or round slow cooker with parchment paper, and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the Cake ingredients until smooth. Transfer to the slow cooker. Place a clean dish towel between the slow cooker and the lid, this is to avoid condensation dripping onto the cake.
  • Cook on High heat for 1 hour.
  • In a medium bowl, stir Topping ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the cake.
  • Replace the towel and cook on High heat setting for another 30 minutes to 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Once done, transfer the ceramic insert from the slow cooker to a cooling rack. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Use the parchment paper, to gently lift the cake, and transfer it to the cooling rack to completely cool.
  • Once the cake has cooled, combine the Glaze ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over the cake.
  • Let the glaze set and slice and serve.
