I use condensed milk when I make pumpkin pie. It's the best pumpkin pie I know of.

yes, I've done this....but we poured 1 can into a graham cracker crust, drizzled with melted chocolate and sometimes served with a dollop of whip cream...

I agree with you all, it's sweet...

Open can(s) of s.c.milk & place in C.P.
Fill C.P. with water to almost tops of cans.
Cover & cook on low for 8 hours.
Is too sweet for my hubby & I straight, so he mixed his in coffee, I dipped apples straight into it, then just mixed about half & half milk (now caramel) & yogurt.
I'm pretty sure that it's really fattening, because it TASTES fattening...DELICIOUS!!!

I've never used sweetened condensed milk with yogurt for a dip - just how are you mixing that?

I don't have any specific recipes that I want to try, I just haven't tried baking in one yet & your menus always sound so delicious.
But I did buy little ramekins for when I finally do try it, so I won't have to waste tin foil. (I was green decades before it was cool!)

Yesterday I did the sweetened condensed milk trick, but found it to be too sweet. I'm going to use it for a dip with lots of yogurt for apple slices.
Thank you for the great tips, Lauri

I just use regular recipes (or sometimes 1/2 the recipe) baking dishes that will fit in the oval cish that I have that fits in the crockpot or a loaf pan. Place a tea towel over the top and then the lid. When doing one the first time I check it every hour and then make a note on the recipe how long it took in the crockpot so I don't have to watch it as close after that. Also, it helps to rotate the pan as much as possible and I prop it up with a trivit or balls of aluminum foil. Crockpots can have some hot spots which is only a problem when baking.

When I do banana bread it's usually done in 3 hrs so it would be nice to be able to program the pot to shut off at 3 hrs rather than the 4 hrs that is currently my lowest setting.

My Hamilton Beach CP isn't programmable, but it does have 3 crocks-2 qt, 4 qt, & 6qt. I have a Westbend that's programmable, but no probe. For me, the programmable was kind of a waste of money, as I've NEVER used the 'program'. If I needed it turned on later, I just had my hubby do it! But you have to go with your individual needs.
BTW, how about sharing a couple of your favorite baking/dessert recipes? Please?

I usually purchase my crockpots used from Goodwill, so many people get them for gifts and then don't use them so $5/pot is hard to beat. I've only had one that wasn't usuable so definitely have been able to save money.

BUT this time I'm splurging...I've decided (UNLESS I hear of a better one from you all!) to purchase the Hamiliton Beach slow cooker with the temp prob and programmable settings. I think this one may work better for baking and desserts.

Let me know if you have it and either love it/hate it or if you have one you think would be a better purchase
