avatarSlow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake

By Joanna Maligaya on June 12, 2013 | Comments (0)

The idea of being able to make desserts using a slow cooker is always fascinating. It’s like it opens up a whole new world of boundless possibilities in terms of chocolaty desserts! Yes, it’s all about chocolate. What else would it be? This time, lava cake has the spotlight.

If you love pudding cakes, you will surely love this.  It follows the same basic principles: cake batter, sprinkle sugar-cocoa over it, cover with boiling water and let bake (in this case, slow cook). Sometimes, this is referred to as chocolate cobbler.

No matter the name, this is a sure hit in anyone’s kitchen. You can feel its homey decadence since it’s not meant to be plated in a sophisticated manner. You can just put it into tiny dessert dishes, pour chocolate lava on top, and then serve with ice cream.

Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake

• 2 cups brown sugar
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
• 4 teaspoons baking powder
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup milk
• 4 tablespoons butter, melted
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fudge topping
• 1-1/2 cups brown sugar
• 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 3 cups boiling water

For the cake: Mix together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in milk, melted butter and vanilla until combined. Spread the batter over the bottom of a large crock pot.
For the fudge topping: Mix together the brown sugar and cocoa. Sprinkle mixture over the cake batter.
Pour the boiling water over the top. Do not stir! Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2-1/2 hours.
Turn off heat, and remove lid. Let sit 20-30 minutes before serving, so its still warm but won’t burn your mouth.

Enjoy! :)
