Expert Tips

Slow cookers vary. Keep an eye on your cake while it's baking so it does not get overdone. Use a slow cooker with a white ceramic base for best results.

This decadent dessert is perfect for entertaining guests because it can be made ahead of time. Sweetened whipped cream is the perfect topping for this delicious treat.
