Cake Recipes From The Crock Pot
Crock Pot Cakes
Have you ever tried a crock pot cake? You should they're great. The first time I tried a crock pot cake was four years ago.
I was looking for an easy to make dessert to make with my students. I work with self contained students and teach reading, writing, and math, along with social skills and life skills. Cooking being one of the life skills that I teach, had me paging through cookbooks for a super easy, but delicious, dessert recipe. Usually we are making a healthy dish but I wanted to reward the class with a special treat.
It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be to find a dessert we could make with our limited resources. As luck would have it, I had told one of my colleges during lunch about my seemingly futile search. She told me I should try making a crock pot cake. At first I was a little reluctant. After all, who had heard of making a cake in a crock pot?
She gave me this recipe she had gotten from her sister for a chocolate cake. Promising me that it would be the best chocolate cake I ever ate she left me there reading the recipe.
I decided, what the heck, it sounded like it might be kind of good. I love chocolate, and everybody knows how children feel about it.
Needless to say, the kids were thrilled to learn we would be making a chocolate cake. It was unbelievably easy to make. You put all of the ingredients into the crock pot, set it on high, and 4 hours later you have a delicious, moist cake.
We used a big spoon to dip out the cake onto a plate, while still hot, and topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a dollop of whipped cream. It was the richest, moistest cake I had ever tried.
That same evening I began to look online for more crock pot cake recipes to try. I found some really good ones that I could tweak a little to suit my taste needs.
You really owe it to yourself to try making your own crock pot cake. You'll be glad you did.
