Gene, the Christmas Angel, has struck again. He came bearing his usual Holiday gift baskets filled with more food than even an army could eat...so I've got about thirty apples in my kitchen. Even my chickens can't help me eat that many before they go bad. This slow cooker apple cake recipe from Fix-It And Forget-It Lightly is just the thing to use up the extra apples because it's so easy, and the results are positively scrumptious.

According to cooks around the web, you can replace eggbeaters with 1/3 cup of egg whites or egg whites from 2 eggs. Best apples for this recipe would probably be Granny Smith, McIntosh, Matsu, Honeycrisp, or Pink Lady (Cripps Pink). The worst apple for this recipe is Red Delicious, so  you're better off choosing anything else.
