Using a large newer Crock-Pot I had great luck with this! No nuts no chocolate but I did add a little vanilla and cinnamon. Greased the crock pot real well and kept an eye on it while it cooked. As soon as it was done I flipped the pot over and it slid right out! Love it!
I made this today and and it turned out great ! It was done it just under 4 hours and turned out exactly like I expected/hoped. I too was dubious about trying this in a crock pot but I ‘mhappy I did; and will definitely make this again and try some variations in the future as well.
I ‘ve made this several times and it has turned out better each time as I learn my crockpot. I decreased the butter and sugar a bit and added vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. I didn’t have very good luck trying to balance a standard loaf pan on the lip of the crockpot. I sprayed the liner of my 6 quart crockpot, poured the dough right into the crockpot, and put a light kitchen towel across the top, under the lid. Mine was done after about 2 hours on low. Basically when it started to smell good.
