- The cake portion of this recipe was adapted from one found in Easy Ketogenic Diet Slow Cooking (one of my favorite low carb cookbooks).
- The icing for this recipe is VERY sweet, especially combined with the cake. If you would like a lighter tasting version, omit the icing and serve with a dollop of whipped cream instead.
- This recipe was intentionally made to be sugar free and low carb. I have not tried substituting sugar and flour in this recipe so I cannot predict how those substitutions would effect the quality of the final result.
- We use a loaf pan inside our 6 quart slow cooker to create a smaller cooking vessel, prevent burning and uneven cooking.
- As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
- All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
