  • For batter, in a medium saucepan melt butter and chocolate over low heat. Remove from heat. Stir in eggs, sugar, jam, applesauce, and vanilla. Using a spoon beat lightly until combined. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Pour batter into prepared dish. Cover dish tightly with foil.

  • Pour warm water into a 6-quart slow cooker. Using the ends of the foil strips transfer dish to cooker. Leave foil strips under dish.

  • Cover and cook on high-heat setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until an internal temperature of 170°F registers on an instant-read thermometer. Using foil strips carefully remove dish from cooker; discard foil strips. Turn off cooker. If possible, remove crockery liner from cooker. Cool for 30 minutes on a wire rack.

  • Top each serving with dessert topping and strawberries.
