Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

This recipe makes a great cake so I wanted to share it with you.  It is from the Crockin' Girls.

1 box of pineapple cake mix (prepare according to box)
2-3 eggs (will be listed on the box)
vegetable oil (will be listed on the box)
Milk (use instead of water on the box)
1 Can of pineapple rings or 1 fresh pineapple cut into 8 rings
1 Can of maraschino cherries
1 small bag brown sugar
Spray 6-quart slow cooker with bakers joy or spray and flour lightly.
Lightly coat the bottom of the slow cooker with brown sugar.
Place pineapple rings of pineapple on top of the brown sugar. Insert one cherry in the middle of each pineapple ring.
In a separate bowl, make box cake according to the package directions and pour batter into the slow cooker.
Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Remove crock from the base & let cake cool for about 10-15 minutes.
Place a platter over the top of the crock and flip crock over, letting the cake fall onto the platter. Serve as is or top with fresh pineapple and cool whip.
