  1. The recipe works very well indeed and I certainly do appreciate the low fat and sugar. In my personal opinion it could use a couple more Tbsp of Splenda. I used just 1 Tbsp of sugar and filled the rest of the 1/2 cup with Splenda and I used 1/4 cup of Splenda Brown Blend (as recommended by Splenda). This is a lovely year round dessert, easy and not kitchen heating for the summer and a warming, comforting dessert for winter. I love that it's made with things that I always have on hand. Made for PAC, Spring 09.
  2. A query... I do not have a slow cooker. Can this be steamed? On what heat and for how long?
  3. This was like a grand experiment for me. I've never tried making cake in a crockpot before. Because my crockpot is so freaking huge, I doubled the recipe, but left the cooking time the same. I timed it so it would be done a couple hours after dinner. What a low-calorie, low-fat treat! Thanks for posting!


I'm primarily into baking, having held two baking jobs in my reasonably short employment history. I'm getting more into vegan cooking but am not by any means a vegan (i'm not ready to eliminate yogurt). At the moment, I'm an mdiv student, learning lots and writing lots of short papers.
