Chocolate Crockpot Cake


A few months ago I blogged about Cake in a Mug. How simple was that? But suppose you're having company, and you need--want?-- more. This recipe for Cake in a Crockpot is simple and easy--but not fast. But... you can put the ingredients in the crockpot in the morning, set the time, and come back to an incredibly delicious moist rich chocolate cake.

CROCK POT CHOCOLATE CAKE
1 pkg dark chocolate cake mix
8 oz sour cream
1 pkg chocolate pudding (instant or cooked)
1 cup or 8 oz chocolate chips (or broken chocolate bits/I put in more, but I'm a chocoholic)
4 eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 cup water

Mix all ingredients together. Pour into lightly greased crock pot. Cover.
Cook 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
Serve with whipped cream or ice-cream!

What size crockpot should one use?

Janet Rudolph said...

That's a good question. I looked up some other recipes, and it looks like a 4-5 quart will work. I have no idea what size mine is.. it's ancient, but still works. It's a mushy cake-very rich and decadent in a not 'high end' way. Comfort food?

The mug cake was fabulous! Can't wait to read about the crockpot cake...yum!

You'll love it. As I mentioned to Marlyn, it's kind of pudding like.. consistency similar to the mug cake. Thanks.
