Pumpkin Pecan Slow-Cooker Cake

Baking a cake in a slow cooker sounded insane, but it turned out to be an amazing thing.

Have you ever thought of baking a cake in a slow cooker? It’s one of the coolest things ever and so simple to do! Be sure to use a slow cooker with a removable stoneware. We used our Organic All Purpose flour here, but you can also use our whole wheat flour. The first time we heard about baking a cake in a slow cooker, it sounded insane, but it turned out to be an amazing thing. The cake turns out moist and delightful.
