With being swamped by our web business, being pregnant (which is equivalent to the word fatigue in my book), chasing around a 10 month old all day, and purchasing a new home just last week, time and energy are precious commodities these days. So I have been looking for easy meals and treats to prepare for entertaining guests, taking to group Bible studies, etc without succumbing to pb & j's
This cake was the perfect solution over the weekend. I literally poured the ingredients into the crockpot, let it brew for two hours while we were at Home Depot picking out paint for our new house, and VOILA...
Your turn to be amazed!
Molten Chocolate Crockpot Cake
1 box devil's food cake mix
1/3 c vegetable oil
1 2/3 c water
1 pkg chocolate flavor instant pudding mix (or the already prepared kind to make it even easier)
2 c milk
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used 1 1/2 for extra goo--highly recommend it)
1. Prepare cake mix into batter using eggs, oil, and water. Pour into crockpot.
2. Prepare pudding mix using milk. Pour this over cake mix in crockpot. Sprinkle with chocolate chips over the top of these layers (remember what I said--more is better!)
3. Cook in crockpot on high setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until cake does not jiggle and little volcanoes of spitting chocolate appear on top. Serve hot with ice cream or whip cream if desired.
Note: Be sure to SPRAY your crockpot well beforehand--you will be glad, trust me. And definitely serve with ice cream--again, trust me.
Piece of cake, huh?
