Simple Cooking - Crockpot Cake

To do it, you mix a cake according to directions on the box. Lightly spray crockpot with cooking spray. Pour batter into crockpot, cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Serve warm and top with ice cream, whipped topping, fruit, caramel sauce or use your imagination. It's really good. The cakes are more moist than if done in oven.
