This sounds like a lovely recipe! Can I use a Slow Cooker liner to make this cake? Also, I have a 6 quart slow cooker, is that a suitable size for preparation? Thank you again for sharing this, I'm so eager to prepare it!

Hi Candice! We haven't tested the recipe using a slow cooker liner, but I think it would work just fine. However, using a 6 quart slow cooker will make the cake much thinner and it will cook faster than the listed time. You could try doubling the ingredients, although we haven't tested this and I can't say for certain that you would have success. If you decide to try, let us know how it turns out for you!
