When the temperatures soar over 80 degrees, I’m not one to put the oven on. Most of our family birthdays are during the summer and everyone looks to me to bake a cake. That is when the Crockpot or slow cooker, comes to the rescue!
The one-pot-wonder can make much more than soup or chili. Here is a great recipe for the Crockpot or slow cooker. It makes a moist, rich chocolate cake that allows me to keep my title of “supreme baker” even during the summer.
Please feel free to add your recipe for all of us to enjoy.
