Pineapple Carrot Raisin Spice Cake




That time has come...this is our last slow cooker/crock pot installment. Since our previous dessert seamed to be such a big hit I had to find yet another one to give a try. This recipe was so simple and yet extremely delish. The aroma that filled the house was incredible, there is nothing better than the scent of cake. Yes... I said cake, cake in the slow cooker. This to me was a very strange idea at first but I am so happy that I tried it, the moist and soft lecture just melts in your mouth and the flavors worked very well together. So last but certainly not least I give to you........



1 - 18.25 oz.
- Spice Cake Mix
1 - 3.4 oz. - Instant Butterscotch Pudding Mix
1 C. - Water
2 C. - Shredded Carrots
¾ C. - Oil
4 - Eggs
1 – 8oz. - Can Crushed Pineapple
1 C. - Sour Cream
½ C. - Raisins
1 Tub Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients with the exception of the frosting, spray the slow cooker with cooking spray and pour the mixture inside. Cover and cook on low for 3½ – 5 hours. Check with a toothpick about 3 ½ hours into the cook time to see how it's coming along. After cake is done, let cool. When the cake has completely cooled frost with the cream cheese frosting and serve.

I never think to use a crockpot for dessert. Spice cake must smell hypnotic while it's cookin'!
Looks fantastic.
