      I would love to try this but prefer to bake it in the oven. Do I use a 9X13 pan and how long should it bake at 375 degrees?

      I confess to a small change, I used the oven- but this is a wonderful recipe- glad I found it

      This was a great treat for breakfast. Instead of putting it in the slow cooker I did bake it in the oven at 375 until it was cooked through.
