A decadent dessert couldn't be easier than this ooey-gooey chocolate cake prepared in a slow cooker. A hint of instant coffee pairs perfectly with the unsweetened cocoa and intensely enriches the flavor.
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Vanilla ice cream (optional)
How to Make It
Stir together all ingredients except ice cream in a large bowl. Pour into a lightly greased 3-quart slow cooker.
Cover and cook on LOW 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until set around the edges but still soft in the center. Let stand, covered, 30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
Made this for dessert Christmas Eve, it was great and so easy. Have a larger slow cooker so I shortened the cook time. I also used instant espresso and it was terrific. Definitely serve with ice cream, & maybe some fresh raspberries too.
My first crock pot recipe and it came out great! I do wish I had whisked the dry ingredients together separately as I had some lumps of flour - but that was my doing. The texture and flavor were fantastic :D My husband said it wouldn't have been the same without the ice cream though :p
As usual I omitted the nuts for husband's preference :D
Really tasty! I have a 6qt. slow-cooker so I wasn't sure how long to cook it for (I didn't double the recipe or anything). I ended up doing about 1 hr. 5 min. It's still a little gooey although totally cooked. Would probably do a little bit longer next time....Yum!
So Yummy! I have made this twice. Once for my husband and myself. We ate half, then reheated the other half a day later--it was just as good as a leftover!
I made it again last night to take to a friend's house, they also loved it--and requested the recipe.
So quick and easy to make. Perfect with vanilla ice cream and I followed the recipe exactly.
Made this for a football playoff party. Doubled the recipe for my larger crockpot. I will only cook for 2 hours next time, as it wasn't very gooey, but we still loved it. So easy and great with ice cream.
