I was curious how a cake would turn out in my crock pot, because I have never made anything but dinners in it (I don't think). This is the same recipe that is in my Fix-it-or-forget-it crock pot cookbook, except for your additions of the baking chocolate and the nuts (both of which I didn't do). I used my 5 qt. crock pot, and I sprayed it with cooking spray before I began, for easier clean-up. I cooked the cake on HIGH for 2 hours, and we ate dinner quite later than I thought, so it actually sat on the counter (with the crock still with the lid on, but turned off and unplugged) for about 2 1/2 hours. The cake was still fine (still a little warm, even), the pudding layer was great, and it wasn't dried out or rock hard or anything. My husband ate his with vanilla ice cream, but I had mine plain, and it was really good. This is a great recipe. I'd say it serves 4. Thanks for posting it.
I think my problem is that I have an abnormally large crockpot...I hope that's the problem. For us, this was virtually inedible, unfortunately. It was extremely hard / chewy, but the parts that were not that way were tasty. Very soon (within just a couple hours) it was rock-solid, and we had to soak the crockpot for several days to get it to come out. I think This would work quite well in a small crockpot. It smelled delicious, though!
This was easy and it smelled great. Heck, it was pretty good. It just wasn't as rich tasting as it smelled or looked. I'll try it again and see if I can tweak it. It is worth trying. Thanks for posting it!
This was very easy and very good. Best of all, I was able to use the crockpot and not heat the house up.
I'm so glad this was on here! I lost my recipe and this looks pretty close to what I used to make. I can't wait to get out the crock pot and make this! Thanks Cookgirl & Bo:-)
