The tasted for this is amazing.. Only thing I would change is use a bigger slow cooker. Cooked in my 1.5L and it was to small.. Outside was cooked inside still runny, and it started overflowing If cooking in 1.5L I wouldn’t add as much of the cake mix. A must try recipe ?

Thank you for adding the Notes in your recipe, I would have trouble turning my slow cooker over to get the cake out, so using a cake tin will be much easier.
