This slow-cooker chocolate cake is meant to be so soft and gooey that you have to eat it with a spoon--just like you would a hot fudge sundae. Heavenly!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed and divided
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons baking cocoa, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups hot water
Optional: vanilla ice cream
How to Make It
Combine flour, one cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons cocoa, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in milk, butter and vanilla. Spread evenly in a slow cooker. Mix together remaining 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa; sprinkle evenly over top of batter. Pour in hot water; do not stir. Cover and cook on high setting for 2 hours or until a toothpick inserted one inch deep comes out clean. Spoon warm cake into bowls; top with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
This cake turned out perfectly! The top inch was hot moist cake on top of a river of gooey chocolate fudge. If you like chocolate desserts that aren't too sweet, this is the recipe for you! It was also fast and easy to make, 2 hour cook time.
