Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Since slow cookers often cook differently, the first time you cook a cake in the slow cooker may take some trial and error to find the right amount of time to cook the cake to doneness. Start gently lifting the cover at about 2 hours, pressing the center of the cake lightly with your finger. If it doesn't spring back to the touch, replace the cover, and check every 15 minutes until done.
  • tip 2
    For extra banana flavor and moistness in this cake, omit the water and add 2 very ripe, pureed bananas to the batter.
