How to Make a Raspberry Zinger Cake in the Slow Cooker

Evenly grease your Crock-pot with cooking spray such as Pam.
Put the lid on the pot and set the heat on HIGH, to prepare the crockpot.
add the melted butter, oil, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl of a stand mixer and combine until smooth and creamy.
Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and raspberry jello in a separate bowl and mix until combined.
Add in the eggs and blend.

For 1 hour, cook on high heat and then switch the heat setting to low. Cook for another 30 minutes to an hour or until a tester comes out clean in the center and the cake is not wobbly.
When done, take off the lid and be cautious of the condensation on the lid to not drop onto the cake.
Let the cake cool until you can take the Crock liner out. Remove the crock and let sit to cool at room temp. If you desire a cooler cake, place the cake or crock in the fridge.

Make the Frosting

Add the cream cheese, and milk in a mixing bowl of a stand mixer and blend. Pour in the vanilla and beat again. Add about 1/3 cup at a time of the powdered sugar and stir until thick and creamy. If your frosting is too thick, then add a bit of milk to thin it out.
Add the frosting all over the cake and sprinkle a good amount of Coconut on top.
Cut into 2-3 inch slices and serve!

Does This Have Real Raspberries?

This Raspberry Zinger cake does indeed use real raspberries. There are two different ways the raspberry flavoring is used. In this recipe, fresh raspberries are used as well as raspberry jello.

Do I Refrigerate Raspberry Zinger Cake?

You will need to put this Zinger Cake in the fridge because of the frosting. The frosting contains cream cheese which would go bad if left out. Putting the cake in the fridge also helps with the shelf life when sealed in an airtight container.

Ingredients
  

  • 6 Tablespoons butter - melted
  • 2/3 cup Oil
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
  • 2 2/3 cups Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Raspberry Jello
  • 1/2 cup fresh Raspberries - washed and drained

FROSTING:

  • 1 - 8- ounce package of Cream Cheese - softened
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
  • 2 - 3 cups Powdered sugar
  • 4 - 6 ounces Shredded Coconut - sweetened
  • Fresh Raspberries to top

Instructions
 

  • First, spray the Crock-Pot with Cooking Spray, place the lid on the crockpot, and turn the heat to HIGH, to heat the crockpot.   In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, blend the melted Butter, and Oil with the Sugar and Vanilla, until smooth and creamy.  In a separate bowl, add the Flour, Baking Powder, salt, and Raspberry Jello, and stir until completely mixed.   Add the eggs to the mixing bowl, and blend.  Add the flour mixture a little at a time, alternating with the Milk, until all ingredients have been added, and mixed until smooth.  Remove the mixing bowl, and fold the fresh Raspberries into the cake batter.  Pour the batter into the crockpot, and cover with the lid.
  • Cook on high heat for 1 hour, and turn the heat setting to low, and cook an additional 30 minutes to an hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, and the cake is no longer wobbly.  When the cake is finished, remove the lid and be careful not to drip any condensation from the lid on the cake.  Allow cake to cool in the crockpot, until the Crock liner can be removed.  Remove the crock, and let cool to room temperature.  Place cake/crock in the refrigerator if the cool cake is preferred.

FROSTING:  

  • In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, place the Cream Cheese, and milk, and blend.  Add Vanilla, and blend.  Add Powdered Sugar about 1/3 cup at a time, and mix until smooth, thick, and creamy.  If Frosting becomes too thick, add a few drops of milk to thin.
  • Frost cake with all of the frosting, and generously sprinkle Coconut on top.  To serve, cut into 2 - 3-inch slices.  Enjoy!

Notes

NOTE:  For best results, place the cake in the refrigerator to cool before serving.  Crock Pot temperatures do vary, so just watch the cake to make sure it's cooking, and when you turn it down, check on it about every 20 minutes until it's done.
