Southern Tasting Apple Cobbler In A Crock Pot

I have tried several ways to make my apple cobbler and apple crisp but this is by far the best way. I promise you will love it and refuse to make any other way. This recipe is short, easy and to the point. I bet you have everything you need right in your cupboards.

You literally need 15 minutes and then 2 hours to let it cook in your crockpot. I always make this when I’m invited to a party or trying to lift the mood of one of my kids or husband. I want them to feel that I deeply care about their problem but the truth is I don’t have time to REALLY care unless it’s a serious issue. Fortunately, haven’t experienced that just your average teenage meltdown.

I Won’t Let You Leave With That German Chocolate Cake

So you think you are just going to grow up and leave me huh? Not so fast their baby boy. I know when you look in the mirror you see someone that is 6’3, facial hair, and body becoming more muscular. But that not me. I’ll tell you what I see.

On February 10, 2004, I gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy. He instantly stole my heart and I stole his. I could not go into another room without him wanting to be right with me. I remember the first time that I enrolled Elijah in a camp. We would only be separated for 4 hours and his big sister would be in the next room. But that didn’t matter to him. He cried and the instructors told me just to go and they would hold him until he calmed down. But the funny part is, when we walked through the doors the instructors thought he was at least 4. They were shocked when I told them he was 2.

When I returned to pick them up, there my baby was sitting on one of the instructor’s lap. She couldn’t have been more than 5’2 and 115 pounds. So he looked gigantic sitting on her lap and still in tears. When he saw me he ran towards me and leaped into my arms. That memory is forever engraved in my brain. I loved that moment so much! I think I missed him more than he missed me.

So yeah that’s what I see when I look at you. My curly head sweetie pie that needs his mama.

So needless to say when told me that you wanted a German Chocolate Cake for your birthday, I was honored to make it. He’s my baby and I’ll make him anything.

Elijah,

“I promise I will let you go one day but today you will not leave with that German Chocolate Cake. I’m going to enjoy watching you eat every bite.”

Makenzie’s Deadliest Chocolate Cake

There is nothing worse than seeing a cake that takes your breath away and then you taste it. It’s thick, dry and you are choking to death. Talk about major buzz kill!!!! Well, push that bad experience aside because I have a treat for you.

Over the weekend I made 2, triple-layer chocolate cakes and the frosting was made from peanut chew candy bars. I have never made a frosting out of a candy bar but I was excited to try something different and mix it up a little bit.

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 3- 3/4 cups Flour
  • 2 cups  Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 cups Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/2 cups melted butter
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 cups Coffee
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • Parchment paper

In a large bowl combine all of your dry ingredients and mix together. In a separate bowl add all of the wet ingredients, whisk and slowly add in your dry ingredients.

Line your 3 pans with parchment paper and leave a little extra paper on all sides of the pan. This will make it easier to remove the cakes from the pan.

Bake on 350 degrees for 35 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
