Chocolate Cake in the Slow Cooker
I will admit that perhaps it is not great to have an easy, yet flavorful cake in the slow cooker, but I cannot neglect sharing this with everyone. It is perhaps the most decadent cake that I prepare, and it is by far, one of the easiest to toss together. Not only this, but if you really want to make it a treat, add some chocolate syrup and a touch of vanilla icecream. It is almost as amazing as a hot fudge sundae. Not only is it amazing, the cake is extremely moist and almost melts in your mouth!
The truth is, my step-son loves chocolate cake, and I was on a mission to discover a recipe which he would absolutely love. Surprisingly, once I made this case, he was not the only one who love it. It immediately became an instant hit! The flavor and the moisture of the cake are absolutely wonderful! Plus, like with so many recipes in the slow cooker, people instantly begin demanding the recipes!
If you are wanting to create a dessert for a special occasion, or just want to satisfy your sweet tooth, this is definitely a recipe worth trying. It has the flavor to answer any sweet cravings, and wonderful enough to be reserved only for special occasions! This has become a popular option for my step-son's birthday, and is a cake he is always looking forward to!
- 1 Chocolate cake mix, your favorite brand
- 1 pkg. chocolate pudding mix, large package
- 4 eggs
- 8 oz. sour cream
- 1 c. water
- 3/4 cc. vegetable oil
- 1 c. chocolate chips, (I prefer the hershey chocolate chip)
- Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray, or line with a slow cooker liner.
- Cover and cook on low for eight hours.
As I mentioned before, top with icecream, a touch of chocolate syrup, and a cherry on top. People will truly think this was something which you either spent hours slaving over, or perhaps it is a special order at a specialty bakery.
Plus, after the first taste, it is almost impossible to stop with just a small taste. Alongside this, the warmth of the cake only intensifies the flavor and enjoyment of the chocolate cake. Alter the recipe, by increasing the pudding, chocolate chips, or the sour cream. Or if you prefer, decrease it. It is all a matter of preference. Another addition you may want to include is a teaspoon of vanilla.
Another interesting twist for those who are extreme chocolate fans, you can push with a touch of both chocolate and vanilla icecream. When selecting icecream, our favorite has always been Breyers Icecream!
