Crockpot cakes are some of my favorites! They’re very easy which is nice but I also like the fact that if I put a liner in there I can get away with almost no cleanup afterwords.

Sure, Crockpots can go into the dishwasher but it’s so much nicer to be able to just toss the liner and not have to worry about taking up a ton of room in the dishwasher or the sink with a dirty slow cooker insert.

Sometimes when I really ant to make a cake but I don’t want to deal with being in the kitchen for an hour or more I’ll just whip up a slow cooker dessert. They’re awesome for even busy weeknights when you don’t want the hassle of baking but would like a special treat!

If you are trying to pick out some of the best supplies to stock your kitchen for cake mix recipes and baking in general, these are some of our favorites and must have items.

I like half sheet baking pans that are quality (hello no noisy pops or sloshed cookie dough from twisting), I line my cookie sheets with silicone baking mats. These are a must when doing cake mix recipes which can settle and become thin at lot easier than traditional cookie dough.

Of course mixing bowls, a mixer, spatula, and some whisks should be on your list if you don’t have ones that you love. I also like to have a set of cooling racks so that my recipes can properly cool before they’re scarfed down by my family!

Ingredients needed for a pineapple coconut Crockpot cake:

For this recipe we will have two different sections because we are making the cake and then the glaze!

For the cake we will start with a boxed cake mix…that’s kind of the whole point over here 😉 and then we will be using some water, eggs, butter, crushed pineapple, chopped pecans, and coconut. The pecans go really well with the coconut in terms of texture and flavor but you can swap them out for a different nut of your choosing or leave them out altogether if you like!

When making the glaze you will need some butter, pecans, pineapple juice (from the canned pineapples), powdered sugar, and more coconut!

As far as ingredients go you should be able to get everything relatively easily online for delivery or in a grocery store. There’s nothing tricky about this one, the slow cooker does all the work for us and the ingredients are simple…what more could we ask for?!
