Slow Cooker Cherry Buckle Recipe

Publisher Photo
This is my version of a recipe I saw on a cooking show. When the enticing aromas of this down-home dessert drift into the kitchen, it's hard not to take a peek in the slow cooker, but keep that lid on! For a really decadent dessert, top servings off with vanilla ice cream.—Sherri Melotik, Oak Creek, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 28, 2014

It was easy and good, but it was also overly sweet. My family and our guests felt like it needed a little tartness. I think I might make it again but would add some lemon juice/zest? Possibly some dried sour cherries?
