Recipe Tips

  • The apricots shouldn’t need any additional sugar added to them unless you like your slow cooker desserts super sweet.
  • You can use fresh, tinned, or even frozen apricots in this dessert. I prefer something easy like the tinned apricots.
  • If you plan on using fresh apricots, make sure you remove the seed before placing it into the slow cooker.
  • Using a gluten-free yellow cake mix is perfect if you're catering for anyone that is gluten-sensitive or coeliac.
  • You can try using a different type of cake mix. For example, if you wanted chocolate and apricot, then you can use a chocolate cake mix instead.
