Crock Pot Chocolate Fudge Cake

Sometimes when birthdays {or even if your just craving chocolate!} fall in the middle of summer and it is hot and humid out, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven to bake a cake. So here is a great option that uses a crock pot...

In under 3 hours you can get this delicious, moist fudge like chocolate cake with a scrumptious chocolate sauce to boot....


Ingredients

Cake
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Stir first 5 ingredients together in a bowl. 
Add milk, cooking oil and vanilla. Stir well. Turn into crock pot. 

Sauce
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
1 3/4 cups hot water

Stir brown sugar and cocoa together in bowl. Add hot water. Pour carefully over batter in crock pot. Do not stir. Cover. Cook on high for 2-3 hours until wooden tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean. Serves 6 (or 2 adults and 2 kids if you like full bowls like us!)

Comes out looking like this and then...

Ooey gooey goodness comes out from underneath when you scoop it out. 

Enjoy!

Cake in a crockpot - now I've heard it all. I linked in a pizza made with roast chicken leftovers to Live.Laugh. Rowe's linky party. Have a great week.

I'm wondering what I did wrong - I made this yesterday, but it wasn't sweet at all. It was bitter and didn't taste like chocolate fudge at all! :(

@ Anonymous-Hope you check back as I do not have your email to respond too...not sure what went wrong , did you double check the amounts and ingrediants? The cake isn't supposed to be overly sweet. I thought it was a perfect sweetness, and it is the consistency that is more like fudge then the taste. I've only made it once, and it was great!
