      WARNING: Please use only canning jars that are specially
   tempered. Do not use cans or other jars that may not be
   appropriate for this method due to lead content. Or, use a
   special crockpot baking pan available thruough Rival Co. To
   assure that baked cakes will slip out easily, grease inside
   of jars well. (Lining bottom of jars with waxed paper also
   will help.) Cover each jar with a piece of foil greased on
   one side. Place greased side down and press foil around
   edges to seal tightly. Place jars in crockpot with crockery
   liner in place. Cover; cook on  high-heat setting for 2 3/4
   to 3 hours or till cakes spring back when touched and a
   wooden tothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean.
   Remove jars from cooker; cool 10 minutes. Unmold cakes;
   remove  waxed paper. Serve warm or cool with whipped
   topping, if desired.
