{Crock Pot} Chocolate Lava Cake

September 14, 2012



I don't want to knock you guys out with crock pot recipes this week, but, this couldn't wait.   Now, this cake is not something you just whipped up and eat while watching TV at night.  OK, well, you could. But, if you are concerned at all about your sweet intake..you may want to have this be a special occasion cake only.   Like..getting a new outfit or perhaps celebrating you made dinner 5 nights in a row without ordering takeout.  You know..important stuff.  It is very rich and very chocolaty and very yummy.  Go find something to celebrate and then, make this.   You will not be disappointed!


Ingredients:
for cake:
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups flour
6 TBSP cocoa powder (unsweetened)
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
4 TBSP melted butter
1 tsp vanilla

for fudge topping:
1-1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
3 cups boiling water

Directions:
for cake:
Spray crock pot with non stick cooking spray.  In a mixing bowl, mix together cocoa powder, brown sugar, flour and baking powder.  Add in butter, vanilla and milk.  Mix until well combined.  Spread evenly on the bottom of the crock pot.
for fudge topping:
Mix brown sugar and cocoa powder until well combined.  Spread evenly over batter in crock pot.  Pour boiling water on top of it.  {Do not stir}.
Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.  Let cake cool about 1/2 hour before serving.

  7. Has anyone ever tried cooking this on low? Just wodering if that could work. Also, I read some that suggested lining the crockpot with parchment paper so it doesn't stick. Any thoughts?

  8. Hi Allison- I haven't tried it on low..only on high per the original recipe. I never thought of using parchment paper in the crock pot..that's a great idea! Please let me know if it works for you :)
