Fantastic. It's wonderful room temperature. Everyone at a Christmas party loved it. I sprinkled mine with white sugar before serving. It only needed 115 minutes in the crockpot on high. You can change up the dates with raisins or dried cranberries. Also the chocolate chips can be changed up with white, butterscotch etc. and you can use a tsp. of vanilla, rum or almond extract. The possibilities are endless. I also made with white flour and it was good! I highly recommend this recipe. I cooked mine in a rival cake/bread pan insert made for crock pots. Lined the bottom with waxed paper, and used cooking spray (Pam). Cool on wire rack 6 minutes then invert onto wire rack, remove waxed paper & cool completely. Perfect for the holidays because it's no fuss, easy and yummy for a busy time of the year.
This is so fantastic! I actually ended up using all whole wheat flour and half pecans. Tastes AMAZING warm with vanilla ice cream! Made for ZWT 9
