Hot Fudge Cake in a Crockpot

Hot Fudge Cake in a Crockpot

I was so honored to be a guest on Cooking Today with Chef Brooks where I made this recipe.
Check out the episode here !!!

1 cup AP flour
1/2 cup sugar
6 Tbsp cocoa powder (divided)
2 tsp baking powder
 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp greek yogurt or applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups hot water
!.)  Spray slow cooker with nonstick spray or use a liner
2.)  In a bowl, sift together flour, sugar, 2 Tbsp cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
3.)  Next, stir in milk, yogurt/applesauce and vanilla extract until fully combined.
4.)  Fold in nuts (if using) and spread mixture (which will be thick) on the bottom of your crockpot.
5.)  In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, remaining 4 Tbsp cocoa powder and hot water until smooth.  Pour mixture over batter but DO NOT STIR!!!!!  The brown sugar/cocoa liquid mixture will sit on top of cake and create a pool of hot fudge hidden underneath your cake as it cooks!  Like a gooey, delicious surprise hidden all along!!!
6.)  Cover and cook on high for 2-2 1/2 hours.
*serve with fat-free vanilla yogurt, whipped cream and a cherry*
