Crock Pot cake | Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

I like this easy crock pot recipe as it is one that has only 4 ingredients in it.  Cake cooked in the CROCK POT is moist and can be served with coffee or tea or as a dessert served warm with ice cream or cream.  A quick and easy icing is to drop chocolate chips and peanut butter on the warm cake and leave a minute or two then swirl them together with a knife.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

2 cups of chocolate cake mix or muffin mix *
3/4 cup of water
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup chopped nuts or chocolate chips
1 egg (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well for 2 minutes.  Pour batter into greased crock pot or a cake tin that will fit in your crock pot.  Cover with paper towels and cover with lid.  Cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

*Look at the packet and try and pick a mix that uses only 1 egg if possible.  I added the egg with the muffin mix and the chocolate chips. If the mixture looks too thick add a little more water.

Paulineh’s Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce

SpaghettiSauceIngredientsThis recipe for crock pot spaghetti sauce is one I have made for many years and is a fairly simple one.  The only preparation is the browning of the onion, garlic and meat.  Just turn on the crock pot add the ingredients and cook on low.  You then only need to cook whatever spaghetti or pasta you like to go with the sauce.  I usually use spaghetti but occasionally I will use fettuccine.

This crock pot spaghetti sauce recipe will serve at least 8 to 10 people so it is good for a big family, a party or even to freeze for future use when you are busy. You can also adapt it and add mushrooms, bacon or chili for a different taste.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do and find it easy to prepare.

Paulineh's Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce

2 lb (1 kg) minced steak (use the best quality you can afford)SpaghettiSaucefrying
3 tabs oil
2 onions chopped finely
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teas oregano
2 teas basil
2 cans whole or chopped tomatoes
5 ounces (140g) tomato paste
3/4 cup beef stock
1/2 cup red wine
1 tab sugar
salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese for topping (optional)

Place the 2 tabs oil in a frying pan and heat, add the onion and garlic and stir until transparent.  Place in the base of the crock pot.  Add 1 tab oil and brown the meat in 3 batches and adding to the crock pot as they brown.  Now add the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, beef stock, red wine, herbs and salt and pepper and mix well.  Put on the lid of the crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours.  In the last hour stir and add the sugar.  This cuts down on the acid from the tomatoes.

SpaghettiSauceTo serve cook the spaghetti or other pasta and pour the sauce on top or stir through.  Add Parmesan cheese if you like it.  You can also serve some crusty bread to mop up the sauce and a tossed salad.  Freeze any sauce that is left over for another meal.  I hope you like my crock pot spaghetti sauce.

Cooking on a budget is more often easier than you think.  Here are a few tips for cheap easy meals using your slow cooker. Don't forget to ask your mother and grandmother for their tips too as they had to be experts in the depression years.

Buy in bulk or when on special

You don't have to be a big family to benefit but you will need a big enough freezer or pantry cupboard to cope with this method of cooking on a budget.  This includes meat and vegetables and make sure to prepare them properly for the freezer or for bottling and canning.   When you find groceries you use often  ''on special' then buy them up too.  Items like canned tomatoes and beans are two that I stock up on.

Slow Cooked Beef Stroganoff

BeefstroganoffI felt like having an old and favorite dish this week called Beef  Stroganoff but this time I made it in the slow cooker.  I haven't made it in the slow cooker before but it turned out great and the meat was tender.  I cut down on the fat by not frying the onion and beef before adding them to the pot but you can if you want to if you like that better.

Beef Stroganoff is a great recipe for the family and is a real warming meal on a cold night and easy to make in the slow cooker as well.  You can serve it with rice but I like noodles with this dish.
