This is where my Crock-Pot, the epitome of easy and quick, comes in! You can toss in a few ingredients, work your little heart out and then come home to a warm cooked meal. Nothing better than that on those cold wintery days. Today being one of those days and with my tired self not wanting to bake something but still wanting to eat something baked, I decided to introduce my Crock-Pot to cake!
Not just any cake mind you, but a deep, rich and melty chocolate cake... full fat of course! I was beyond skeptical that this would work, but ever hopeful that it would. The end result was out of this world good!
Chocolate Cake ... In a Crock-Pot!
adapted from twoboysonegirlandacrazymom
1 package chocolate cake mix (I KNOW... I KNOW... ready-made = LAZY!!)
1 packet (3.9oz) Jello instant chocolate pudding mix
500ml sour cream
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Coat inside of Crock - Pot with a little bit of oil so it helps with cutting of the cake. Place mixture in Crock-Pot and "bake" on low for 3-4 hours or until it looks done. EASY!
|Heaven.... I may or may not have had more than 1 slice....|
And there you have it... lazy baking at its best!
