  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 3 medium peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  • 2 tablespoon snipped crystallized ginger or 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

  • 1 cup milk

  • ½ cup crushed graham crackers

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 egg

  • 2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon grated whole nutmeg or ground nutmeg

  • Vanilla ice cream (optional)


  1. Generously coat a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Add peaches to cooker. In a small saucepan combine the next three ingredients (through ginger). Cook and stir over medium-high heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture over peaches; stir gently to coat.

  2. In a bowl combine milk and crushed graham cracker. In a large bowl beat together the 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter on medium until combined. Beat in egg. In a bowl stir together the next four ingredients (through nutmeg). Add half of the flour mixture to butter mixture, beating on low until combined. Stir in graham cracker mixture. Beat in the remaining flour mixture just until combined.

  3. Spread batter over peach mixture in cooker. Cover top of slow cooker with foil; place lid on top. Cook on high for 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 hours or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of cake layer comes out clean, giving crockery liner a half turn halfway through cooking, if possible.

  4. Turn off cooker. If possible remove crockery liner from cooker; cool, covered, up to 1 hour on a wire rack before serving.

  5. To serve, remove lid and foil. To unmold cake, run a butter knife around edge of crockery liner. Place a large plate over the crockery liner. Using pot holders, carefully invert cake onto plate. Serve cake warm or at room temperature. If desired, top each serving with ice cream.
