Just made this its turned out brilliantly. I used a cake tin since i have a 6lt. I might double it next time or use a smaller tin. Yay

Cook cakes on low
When cooking a new cake for the first time just keep an eye on it and check with a skewer as you would a normal cake in the oven
Whatever batter mix you like is perfectly ok for slow cookers too 🙂

Made this cake today and added about 3 tablespoons of Nutella, yummy! I doubled the recipe and the size was perfect for my 3 litre slow cooker. It took about an hour longer too 🙂

I have a rectangle slow cooker with a removable crock insert what can I use to cook cakes and muffins in? Would a silicone loaf pan and silicone muffin pan be best? And put it on the wire rack?

The quantities were too small for my size slow cooker- we only seem to have one size here in Australia?
So I doubled the flour, cocoa, milk, added 3 eggs, and 1 1/2 cups brown sugar and 5 tablespoon s melted butter- worked perfectly for my 6 liter cooker- ! Yumm .

This was my first slow cooker cake and i will never do it in the oven again! I used coffee milk instead of plain milk and it was delicious!

The Icing recipe/method for this cake was as follows:
Place 1- 1&1/2 cups of pure icing sugar and 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder into a bowl. Mix to combine. Then you just add milk a little at a time mixing quite vigorously to combine and to also get rid of any lumps in the icing sugar. 1-2 tablespoons of milk should be plenty. I just add milk and mix intermittently until it’s the icing consistency I want, thick or more runny. On this cake I refrigerated the icing while the cake cooked and then iced while just slightly warm and it was lovely.
