  1. Hmm... sheer paradise in a crock pot! Can't wait to test this recipe out. Thanks for posting it.

  2. Come back and let me know how you enjoyed it :-)

  3. Is this best done in one of those small crockpots or can I use my 5 qt.?

  4. 5 qt is the size I use, of course, I noticed the older ones are taller and narrower than the newer ones. You might want to check with the toothpick sooner if you think yours might be shorter and wider.

    Baking in a crockpot is sometimes a trial by error.

    I have successfully doubled the recipe in a 6 qt. The biggest part it just not cooking beyond when the cake tests done.

  5. Oh, Brenda you are ruining my diet. But I have to give this recipe a try.

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. I went ahead and made this today and have added a photo. As you can see, I put my nuts (Almonds) on last, that way everyone can add whatever kind they like best.

    I also used splenda, this time. It didn't seem to change the texture or taste.
