Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

Cooking in the slow cooker is my favorite lazy day meal plan, so to have a dessert come out of it is even better.
This cake ends up being a lot like a molten chocolate cake. Eating it all without leaving leftovers is ideal since they don’t stay as delicious as the original. Ice cream goes perfectly with this.

1 c. flour
½ c. sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ c. milk
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla
½ c. chopped nuts
¾ c. brown sugar
¼ c. cocoa powder
1 ½ c. hot water

1. Spray slow cooker with baking spray. In medium bowl, mix flour, sugar 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk, oil and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the nuts. Spread in the bottom of the slow cooker.
2. Mix brown sugar and ¼ c. cocoa powder, stir in the hot water. Pour over the batter in slow cooker.
3. Cover and cook on high setting 2 to 2 ½ hours or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
4. Turn off the slow cooker and let the cake stand, uncovered, 30-40 minutes before serving.
