Slow Cooker Chocolate Pudding Cake


1 cup flour

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder

2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

4 Tablespoons butter, melted cooled

1 egg yolk

2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

1 cup boiling water

whipping cream (optional)

Line the back side of the slow cooker with an aluminum foil collar. Make the collar by layering two sheets of aluminum foil that measure about 16" long. Fold over each other in thirds, so that you end up with a 6 layered foil rectangle measuring about 4" by 16". Press the foil collar to the the backside of the slow cooker. Make sure that the foil collar does not reach the top of the slow cooker. Spray with cooking spray.

Whisk the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup cocoa, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together milk, melted butter, egg yolk, and vanilla. This mixture might clump up a bit. That is okay. Add this mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. The batter will be sticky and stiff.

Scrape the batter into the slow cooker and spread the batter to the edges.

Mix the rest of the 1/2 sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa powder. Sprinkle the mixture over the batter in the slow cooker.Slowly pour the boiling water over the top. Do not stir. Cover and cook on high for 1 1/2-2 hours. Cake is done when the top looks a little cracked and the sauce is bubbling.

Remove foil collar and let the cake sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Top with a dollop of whipped cream if desired.
