Good Morning Ya'll!
I have a Saturday "surprise recipe" for you this lovely morning. If you are like me, I love the smell of cake baking in my home. I was a crock pot bandit when my kids were small. For me, a crock pot gives you a break from physically cooking and it's so easy to just throw all the ingredients in the pot to simply, "fix it and forget it" and then a few hours later... A perfect meal. I have made everything from stews, queso, ribs, chicken, pork chops, soups and so much more but my favorites are the desserts. I used a standard chocolate cake recipe and created heaven. Seriously.
Chocolate Lava Cake
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup of Cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 sticks of melted butter
2 TBSP vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
*chocolate chips and or mini marshmallows
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
Combine all dry ingredients then add wet ingredients to dry mixture. Beat until smooth. ADD chocolate chips and/or marshmallows. stir then Pour into 4 qt crock pot. Cook in crock pot for 3-4 hours until tooth pick comes out clean with crumbs. You will be able to tell when its done.
Serve warm with ice cream or let it set to completely cool. I am a hot cake kinda girl!
