This sounds fab BTW.
You didn't miss it. The cake batter rises to the top and the sauce end up under it. It's pretty fun to watch! So I guess the sauce is the cocoa, hot water, and brown sugar. Like callie said, it makes a lot. I served a generous amount over each piece and we still had a lot left in the pot (for the cook later! ).

Could you make adjustments for a slow cooker with only a low setting? Would you just have to cook it longer?

I would try it. Since the original says 2 to 2 1/2 hours I would check it after about 3 1/2 hours.

I make one just like this in the oven and love it. I didn't know you could do it in a slow cooker! I will definitely have to try this.

Another question: if I didn't want to make a sauce on top, what could I cover the slow cooker with to keep the water off?

The sauce actually is made under the cake. The cake's on the top (strange, I know, but very cool to watch cook!). While the slow cooker lid does make some condensation, it's minimal and doesn't effect the end result at all.
