A slow cooker apricot dump cake is one delicious dessert that you need to try. One of the best things about this cake is how easy it is to make and get cooking in no time at all.

Slow Cooker Apricot Dump Cake

Apricots are an excellent fruit to use in a slow cooker dump cake. You can use fresh, frozen or even tinned apricots. Personally, I tend to use tinned as they cook to be soft, flavorsome, and work perfectly with the cake mix.

There are hundreds of ways you can serve this apricot dump cake. My personal favorite is to have it with a drizzle of some hot custard. Other extras you can have include ingredients like ice cream, heavy cream, or even melted chocolate.

Leftovers of this cake are pretty good the next day. I recommend heating it up in the microwave before eating, but you can also have it cold. It’s pretty much up to you how you have any leftovers of this delicious cake.
