Seriously doesn't need much explaining. I just need to hand you a fork, some ice cream and then point you to the treadmill later. This recipe is totally worth running the extra couple miles. Holy cow, YUM!! And can I say I don't know if I'll ever make a regular cake in the oven again? The crock pot is so easy and it makes my house smell amazing with choc. cake all afternoon. And it's SO moist! Enough talking, let's get to cooking! Seriously would have taken a picture of mine, but I was too busy shamelessly scarfing down my obscenely large serving of this scrumptious cake! hee hee.
for the cake:
-2 c. brown sugar
-2 c. all purpose flour
-6 tbs. cocoa powder
-4 tsp. baking powder
-1 tsp. salt
-1 c. milk
-4 tbs. butter, melted
-1 tsp. vanilla
for the fudge topping:
-1 1/2 c. brown sugar
-1/2 c. cocoa powder
-3 c. boiling water
For the cake:
-Mix sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder & salt.
-Then stir in the milk, butter and vanilla.
-Spray the crock pot with cooking spray. Then spread the mix down in the bottom of the crock pot.
For the Fudge topping:
-Mix brown sugar & cocoa.
-Sprinkle it over the top of the cake batter. Don't mess with it after this. Meaning: resist the temptation to stir.
-Pour the boiling water on top. DO NOT STIR! Just let it be. You're done!
-Cook on high for 2-2 1/2 hrs. (mine was done in 2 hrs. but your crock pot might be different)
-Turn off the heat and let it sit for 20-30 min. (I know by this point, you just want to dive in there, believe me you'll want to wait, so you don't burn your mouth. I learned the hard way.)
-Okay now you can dig in! And you might as well top it with ice cream because seriously, your calorie consumption at the point is already through the roof. So you might as well make it good eh? :) Enjoy!!
