When I first made my slow cooker chocolate cake, my husband and daughter LOVED it. My daughter claims it's one of her "MOST favorite" desserts! I also shared the cake with my next door neighbor's son, who liked it so much that he ate the whole thing without telling anyone about it!—Aimee Fortney, Fairview, Tennessee

"We really liked this recipe. I made the mistake of leaving the leftover in the crock and put in the refrigerator. The next day I couldn't get it out of the crock without a lot of work. Oops! Will definite make it again and wll put the leftovers in a proper storage container."

"Very nice especially on a busy, cold day. To klandrews84-you obviously neglected to actually read the entirety of what KACsMom wrote. She couldn't ask the question without a rating. (She even apologized.) And many folks don't skip recipes with low ratings. In my experience,a low rating may sometimes simply be the result of an ignorant person's inability to follow a recipe. Or the reviewer just plain doesn't like flavor of the ingredients but made the dish anyway. To KACsMom: there are several similar recipes online that you can bake in the oven. I believe TOH has some here on their site. Good luck! (If you ever do get a slow-cooker, you won't regret it. It is a kitchen workhorse.)"

"This cake was delicious. We topped ours with whipped cream. But it's so rich and moist it doesn't require any topping. I didn't think the mocha taste was overpowering, which was perfect for my kids."
