Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Lightly coat a 3 1/2- or 4-qt. slow cooker with cooking spray. In a large bowl combine yogurt, milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir in next five ingredients (through salt). Stir in apples, walnuts, and cherries. Spoon batter into prepared cooker.

  • Cover and cook on low 2 1/4 to 2 3/4 hours or until cake registers 190°F to 200°F and center appears nearly set, giving crockery liner a half-turn halfway through, if possible.

  • Turn off cooker. If possible, remove crockery liner from cooker. Cool, uncovered, 10 minutes. Remove cake; cool completely on a wire rack. If desired, serve with ice cream.


To toast nuts, preheat oven to 350°F. Spread nuts in a shallow baking pan. Bake 5 to 10 minutes or until light brown, watching carefully and stirring once or twice.
