I loved the lemon flavor and I liked that it is so easy to prepare.

Hi Karen, This recipe was tested in a 3-4 quart slow cooker. We would not recommend doubling the recipe, as it may not cook as evenly.

The recipe references inserting a foil liner inside the slow cooker made from a sheet of aluminum foil. This helps to prevent excessive browning of the dessert cake.
