“Yummy, easy cake baked in the crockpot with minimal ingredients. My 2yr old son wanted to bake a cake in July, sooo, not wanting to use the oven (heating up the house) I put this in the crockpot. Please note I have a 6qt crockpot. I think if I had cooked it for a shorter time it would have been a bit more like pudding cake but it was delicious & super moist!!”
