Slow Cooker (crock-pot) Pina Colada Lava Cake


CrockPot Pina Colada Lava Cake #dessert #crockpot #slowcooker

Makes about 6 servings
Ideal slow cooker size:  3-4 quart

1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 (14 oz) can cream of coconut (can be found in the aisle next to the alcohol), divided
1 (16 oz) can crushed pineapple, drained of juice (reserve the juice)
2 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
1 cup shredded coconut, divided
1 cup coconut milk (or if you're in a pinch just use evaporated milk)
Vanilla ice cream

1.  Dump drained pineapple into the bottom of slow cooker and spread to cover the bottom.
2.  Combine vanilla, flour, baking powder, 1/3 cup cream of coconut, 2/3 cup of reserved pineapple juice, 1/2 cup of shredded coconut and oil in a medium bowl.  Stir together until well-incorporated.  Spread batter on top of the pineapple.
3.  Stir together 1 cup of coconut milk and cream of coconut and bring to a boil.  Pour boiling liquid on top of the batter (don't stir).
4.  Cover slow cooker and cook on HIGH for about 2-3 hours or on LOW for about 3-4.  
5.  Place the rest of the coconut on a cookie sheet.  Toast the coconut in the oven on broil for a couple of minutes.
5.  Scoop down deep to get the cake, pineapple and sauce into the serving bowls.  Serve topped with vanilla ice cream and toasted coconut.

Review:
So proud of myself to come up with this recipe.  Although it isn't my typical chocolate dessert, it will suffice. :)  I loved the toasted coconut on top!  And of course serving with ice cream is a must.  The cream of coconut is found next to the alcohol at the grocery store.  It is typically used to make pina coladas.  My cream of coconut was a little separated (it should look white and creamy) so I used a blender to puree it a bit.  That cream of coconut is soooo good.  Imagine sweetened condensed milk with coconut flavor...yum!  4 stars.
