|Fudgy Chocolate Cake, as slow cooker recipe.|
This is a fudgy chocolate cake that will look like a dried out mud puddle when you go to serve it, but I ask you kindly - don't let that stop you from enjoying every bite!
It is the drama of brown food. It looks as boring as the color brown. And we all know the story of brown, it goes something like this........"Here is that bouquet of brown roses you ordered" (said no florist ever).
I recommend you make this cake when you have a few minutes to spare before dinner is served and enjoy it after the dishes are cleared away. Oh and please serve it along with some version of cream, whipped, iced or even simply sweetened, I think you get the idea.
Fudgy Chocolate Cake
adapted from: Fix It and Forget It, New Cookbook
ideal size slow cooker: 4 qt
serves 8-12 (not really, you might want seconds....)
1 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 T butter
1 c chocolate chips - divided
1 1/4 c brown sugar - divided
1/3 c plus 3 T dry cocoa - divided
1/4 t salt
1/3 c milk
1 T vanilla
1 1/2 c hot water
Coat inside of cooker with butter or cooking spray, set aside.
In mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, 3 T cocoa and 1 c brown sugar.
In a small bowl, melt the butter and 1/2 c chocolate chips, set aside to cool slightly.
Add the cooled chocolate mixture to the flour mixture, along with the egg, milk, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth and glossy.
Spoon into the slow cooker, spreading evenly.
Over the top of the cake batter, crumble the remaining cocoa, brown sugar and chocolate chips. Gently pour the hot water over the top.
Cover and cook on low, 1 - 2 hours, depending upon your slow cooker. The cake will begin to pull away from the sides of the crock. Carefully remove lid and do not let condensed steam drip back into the cooker.
Serve with some of that cream I talked about.
