What size crockpot did you use? Round or oval? Thanks!!
Tammie I used my 6 quart oval crock pot, but you can use a little smaller if you don’t have the 6 quart. Happy Crocking!
Sounds yum! I’d like to make it for a potluck — does it come out of the crock easily and hold it’s form?? Sounds really good.
Just want to be sure I’m reading this right……do you use the pumpkin pie spice INSTEAD of the cinnamon, ginger and cloves?
(Haven’t had my morning coffee yet…..just want to be sure I don’t mess this up! LOL!)
Thanks! Can’t wait to try this!
Yes Karen you can use either. But not both! Happy Crocking!
In the crock pot now; so excited!!
What do you mean by “top cracks”?
Amanda sometimes when you make a pumpkin pie the top will crack and you know it is done! It is just something to help our friends if they are checking their crocks to see if their cake is done. Thank you for the question, and Happy Crocking!
Does this recipe come out of the crock pot easily?
Yes Karen it does! It really depends on how your crock pot crocks. If you haven’t used the crock pot liner, you may want to use them for this recipe. You find them in the grocery near the baggies. Happy Crocking!
This did not turn out good at all. The cake mix stayed on the top and the pumpkin mix stayed on the bottom. I cooked it a shorter time then the recipe says and it burned the outside and left the inside gooey.
So sorry it did not turn out for you. I really don’t know what happened, but wonder if your crock pot cooks hot? I know I have one crock pot that crocks hotter than the others, and I only use it for certain things. Have you checked with the manufacturer of yours to see if there is a recall on it, or if they have any suggestions. Thanks for the feedback! Happy Crocking!
I would recommend maybe putting the size of the crockpot used . My cake has been crocking since 9am and it is now 3pm(on high). I think if I had used a bigger pot it might have cooked quicker.
