Day 10: Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Cake

Makes 8 servings
Ideal slow cooker size:  3 quart

1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup flour
3 Tbsp cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 3/4 cups boiling water

Mix together 1 cup brown sugar, flour, 3 Tbsp cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, butter, and vanilla. Spread over the bottom of slow cooker. Mix together 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa. Sprinkle over mixture in slow cooker. Pour in boiling water. Do not stir. Cover and cook on HIGH 2-3 hours, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Makes 8 servings.

I give this recipe 5 stars! If you love chocolate like I do, you will enjoy this recipe. It is so good served with ice cream and is perfect for a Sunday dessert. While it cooks, the cake rises to the top and the water turns into a yummy chocolate sauce, making it perfect to serve over the ice cream. Just make sure to use baking powder not baking soda. I've made that mistake a couple of times in my life and I was so sad when I found out and it tasted DISGUSTING!

  8. I do one so similar to this! Got it from a TV show called Best Recipes Ever on CBC (in Canada) and she had one very similar recipe... only diff is I make the 'fudge' stove top, then pour over the mixture of flour etc with NO STIR.... 2hrs later it is done... So darn good; will try yours next time. Meg
