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.
