    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    • 1c. all purpose flour
    • 2t. baking powder
    • 6T. butter
    • 2oz. semisweet chocolate or 1/3c. chocolate chips
    • 2/3 plus 1/3c. sugar
    • 3T. plus 1/3c. dutch processed cocoa
    • 1T. vanilla
    • 1/4t. salt
    • 1/3c. milk
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1/3c. brown sugar
    • 1 1/2c. hot water
    • whipped cream or ice cream


    1. Coat the inside of a 2 1/2-5 qt. slow cooker with cooking spray.
    2. The cooking time and final appearance will vary depending on you crock's size.
    3. Whisk together the flour and baking powder in a medium bowl and set aside.
    4. In a large bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water and mix well.
    5. Whisk in the 2/3c. of sugar, 3T. cocoa, vanilla, salt, milk and egg yolk.
    6. Add the flour mixture and stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour the batter into the slow cooker and spread it evenly.
    7. In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining sugar, cocoa and hot water until sugar is dissolved.
    8. Pour the mixture over the batter in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 1-2 hours depending on the size of the crock pot.
    9. Even when done, the cake will be very moist and floating on a layer of molten chocolate.
    10. But you'll know it's ready when nearly all of the cake is set and the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pot.
    11. As you check, try not to let the condensed steam from the lid drip onto the cake.
    12. When it's done, turn off the power and remove lid. Let it cool for 25 minutes.
    13. Serve it in bowls topped with whipped cream or ice cream.
    14. Makes: 6-8 servings
