This cake was absolutely fantastic & we are VERY VERY PICKY. I made it when there were NO reviews at all last week. I'm glad I did. In fact, it was soo good we made it a 2nd time 3 days later when the first cake ran out. I am a closet gourmet chef & only eat desert usually if I make it (don't waste time eating store bought sweets). I'm not a cake fanatic, but this one yum. This took 3 hours like it says & turn off & leave for 30 more minutes -- I made it exactly according to the recipe -- we serve it on a plate with a side of ice cream (butter pecan is good or mint chocolate chip) & drizzle chocolate sauce (just a smidge) on top of ice cream & cake & top w/ whipped cream (can is good for this). I've made this twice & plan to make it a 3rd time any day. Tastes like devil's food. Smells soo good cooking. Don't heat it up in the microwave fyi or you may dry it out. Leftovers stay well for a few days w/plastic wrap atop & left in crockpot w/lid on if you like unplugged of course. I'm not sure why people are saying rubbery, tasteless. because that's furthest from the truth for us. Maybe they used Canola oil - u Have to use a heavier oil - like vegetable oil. I used Crisco veg. oil) I have a large oval Rival pot. I am searching for great recipes for my crock pot cookbook as I've found a lot of crock pot recipes are awful. This one is a keeper. Just like the italian sandwiches on this site for the crock pot. yum I've passed this recipe off already.
