Slow Cooker Cherry Flan

This is super easy and quite delicious!  Just remember that it is a flan, not pudding or bread, so the flavor will be a bit more on the eggy side.  With that in mind, I just love the combination of the flavors.  The cherries do stand out beautifully.  Enjoy!
-butter flavored cooking spray
-5 eggs
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/2 tsp salt
-3/4 cup flour
-1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-14-16 oz frozen pitted, dark sweet cherries, thawed
-whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, for topping (optional)
-chocolate syrup, for topping (optional)
Coat the inside (bottom and sides) of the slow cooker with butter flavored cooking spray.
Using your electric mixer, beat the eggs, sugar and salt at high speed, until thick.  Add the flour and beat until smooth.  Add the milk and vanilla.  Mix well.
Pour batter into prepared slow cooker.  Distribute the thawed cherries evenly across the batter.  Cover and cook on low for 3.5-4 hours or until the flan is set.
Serve as is or with desired toppings.  Enjoy!
