From the Blogger: "I love making my favorite desserts in my slow cooker. Desserts like dump cakes and crisps can be tricky in the slow cooker though. They tend to come out soggy. But I have a little trick up my sleeve that makes them come out perfect every time. My secret is the “tea towel under the lid” trick. Never heard of it? The idea is that the towel soaks up the moisture and the desserts are crisp and the toppings are browned. I used that trick for many years until a friend shared a great little sewing project with me—a Slow Cooker Lid Cover."

I would have never thought of needing a slow cooker fabric lid cover under the lid but this makes sense now for keeping desserts from getting soggy. Using an absorbent tea towel or some terry cloth fabric to make the lid cover is a great idea. I imagine this would be an interesting conversation piece to share during a potluck get together.
