This absolutely lush dessert recipe is to die for Joanne Talarico 😋😍 Thanks so much for sharing your yummy creation with us 😊 I halved the recipe for my family of 5 – I used 2×410gm pink lady apple slices in juice, 1/2cup caramel topping and 1×380gm vanilla cake mix. I needed to stretch out the cooking time a little in order for us to have time to digest our dinner so I cooked it with a tea towel under the lid in my 3lt sc on high for 2hrs and then reduced to low for another 2hrs. I also left it on keep warm for a good 1/2hr before serving with caramel crunch ice cream. Completely mouthwatering dessert, highly recommend you try this one for yourself 😁

I made a gluten free version of this for my dad for father’s day. They didn’t have a GF vanilla cake mix available so used chocolate. Added vanilla icecream and fed about 20 people for dessert! 🤤

Best tasting recipe love love the desert it’s soo easy to make 😍

Doreen for sure you can use fresh apples just stew first. I haven’t tried with condensed caramel but experimenting is half the fun. Might turn out really sweet but give it a go and please let me know how you go

Lisa for half the recipe I would suggest a 3 litre cooker and for the full recipe a large 5 or 6 litre cooker.

What size slow cooker would you suggest for both the full recipe and those that have halved it Paulene Christie? 🙂

Can I use fresh apples and stew them first and also used tin of condensed milk caramel. Recipe looks delicious but we don’t have all the ingredients here in Cairo.

Used NZ ingredients. One tin Watties sliced apple @ 770g, one Edmonds vanilla cake mix @ 555g, with one egg and bit of water, made up just like the packet says, and half a bottle of Delmaine caramel topping. Next time I’d be tempted to use the whole bottle of caramel topping cos I love it so much! For two of us we got 6 large , I mean LARGE servings!

Hi,which Caramel topping do you use please?


September 2, 2019

This was amazing and so freaking easing to make. I made mine with gluten free vanilla cake mix and left out the caramel as my monsters are not fans, and served with ice cream. It turned out so well and my fussy monsters have requested it again . 10 outta 10 from us in the Hudson household

This is the most yummiest dessert I’ve made. The whole family loved it. They wanted more and are always asking for me to make it again.
It’s to die for. I’ve told family members about this dessert.
Due to being lactose intolerant I substituted the dairy to lactose/dairy free.

Do you need to drain the liquid out of the apples or add it in also?

Recipe states high Tess 🙂


August 27, 2019

do you cook on high or low


August 26, 2019

I made this tonight super easy! I only used 1 x 800g tin of sliced apples
And made up 1 packet of cake mix.

I didnt use caramel because the brand i bought didnt taste very nice so i left it out.

Cooked on low for 3 hours, i didnt read it properly where it said cook on high. Oops. It came out perfect cooked on low though as the amount of ingredients were reduced.

Absolutely fantastic. Only used one tin apple,1/2 cup caramel and one cake mix. Took over 5 hours but I have a old cooker. Will definitely do again. So yummy

Looks delicious & so easy✅

This is a lovely three ingredient dessert. I halved the recipe to use in my 1.5l baby cooker, but it was still too much. I used about 3/4 of the apples, with 1/2 cup caramel topping and about 3/4 cake mix. (Butter cake) Will definitely make again. Thank you for the recipe Joanne.
