Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Cake
Ingredients for cake mixture:
8oz plain flour
6oz brown sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp baking powder
10 fl oz milk
2oz butter (melted)
Ingredients for fudge sauce:
2oz cocoa powder
6oz brown sugar
2fl oz boiling water
Take two 14cm bowls and grease well. Set to one side.
Place two crumpet rings at the base of the slow cooker. If you don’t have any crumpet rings available you can use some scrunched up foil. This will create the base for your bowls to sit on. Pour an inch or so of boiling water into the slow cooker bowl.
First prepare the fudge sauce. In a pan stir the boiling sugar and water together over a medium heat until the sugar has melted. Add the cocoa powder and stir well. Divide the fudge mixture between the two bowls.
Now you can create the cake mixture.
Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder into a large bowl.
Stir in the brown sugar then add the milk and melted butter. Mix well.
Divide the mixture between the two bowls on top of the fudge sauce.
Loosely cover each bowl with foil then place the bowls into the slow cooker.
Cook on high for 3-4 hours.
Serve the fudge cakes immediately, turning them out upside down before dishing up. The fudge sauce will run over the edges coating the cake. Serve with a dollop of ice cream. Be warned though, it’s very sweet!
