Slow Cooker Zucchini Cake Recipe


Still have zucchini in the garden, in the refrigerator crisper, and on the kitchen counters? This moist and delicious Slow Cooker Zucchini Cake with Caramel Sauce is a great choice to use it up. Not only is it quick and easy to mix; it “bakes” in the slow cooker in 2 to 2 1/2 hours – relatively quick for a slow cooker. Not only is it easy and quick, this delicious cake is good served warm or at room temperature, and is actually pretty enough for company.
