We’ve named this slow cooker recipe "Orange Almond Bread," but it veers dangerously close to cake territory with its sweet orange icing and moist, yogurt-infused batter.

  • Remove 1 teaspoon zest and squeeze 1/4 cup juice from orange. In a medium bowl whisk together orange zest, orange juice, and the next six ingredients (through vanilla) until sugar is dissolved. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). Spoon into prepared cooker.

  • Cover and cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until top is set (a tiny area may be slightly wet), giving crockery liner a half-turn halfway through, if possible. (When removing lid, carefully lift so condensation from lid does not drip onto bread.)

  • Turn off cooker. Remove lid. Cover opening of cooker completely with paper towels; re-place lid. Cool 10 to 15 minutes. Remove bread from cooker; peel off paper. Cool completely on a wire rack. If desired, drizzle with Orange Icing and sprinkle with additional almonds and orange zest.
