This is from the Better Homes and Garden Slow cooker book. I adapted it to what I had on hand and used the technique. It is something I had never heard of and tried. I liked it! Something different when the oven is in use. (or for summer when you do not want oven on)

I used chunky applesauce and no sweetener, as I'm diabetic. I crock/baked it for 2 hours and then took the lid off for the last 20 minutes. I put the mixture right into the crock, first putting some parchment paper on the bottom and then greasing the whole thing. It came out great, and using a fruit spread and butter made up for the lack of sweetener in the bread. I'll be definitely making this again! Thanks!
I finally got to make this recipe tag...and am so glad I made such a wonderful choice. I do not have any canning jars, so I had to half the recipe and cook it in a round 20-oz glass casserole dish instead. My only complaint...halving the recipe didn't make enough. I will have to buy some canning jars so that I can make the full recipe! This round I did not add any nuts, or fresh apple however; I look forward to adding some chopped pecans and fresh apple the next time I make this. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe Connie. Made and reviewed for the Make My Recipe #14 Tag Game.
I made only 1/2 the recipe since I realized I didn't have any pint jars. I used a round dish instead and it turned out perfect. This recipe is quick and easy to put together and I will be making this again for a quick snack. Thanks for posting Chef1Mom. Reviewed for Spring 2008 PAC.
