Tonight’s Culinary Adventure is
But, wait, this is not just any chocolate cake, this is:
That’s right! This cake is made, from start to finish, in your Crockpot! What could be better?
I found the recipe for this here.
You will need:
1 package chocolate cake mix
1 container of sour cream (8 oz)
1 cup chocolate morsels
1 cup water
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 package instant chocolate pudding mix
Please note that I cut this recipe in half because I have a ridiculously small Crockpot.
Here we go!
-Spray your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.
-Put on the lid.
I swear- that’s it!
Now, the recipe says that you cook it for 6-8 hrs. on low or 3-4 hrs. on high.
Don’t open the Crockpot until you are relatively sure that the cake is done, or else you will mess up the cooking time..? Okay, I’m not really sure WHY you aren’t supposed to open it- just don’t, okie- dokie?
Here is the problem.
After about 1.5-2 hrs. on high, my cake smelled done.
What’s a girl to do?
I opened the lid, and…….
It WAS done!
How did it get done so fast? Hard to say. Maybe a half-recipe takes HALF as long?
Taste Testers Say:
Brian: Where’s all the chocolate chips?!
It’s really good. But it could use more chocolate chips.
Joseph: Can’t talk now, frantically signing/whining for more cake! Gimme, gimme, gimme!
Quite a lovely little chocolate cake! Now, it wasn’t the BEST chocolate cake I’ve ever had, but it was pretty darn good. And it was definitely the best Crockpot cake I ever had.
Seems like a cool, novel little trick to show/serve company!
PS The cooking spray was virtually pointless…
