A few days ago, I posted a recipe for baking bread in the crock pot (see here). Since that turned out so well – I thought I would give cake a try! To find a recipe, I went back to the same cookbook – “Fix It and Forget It”. There are quite a few recipes for baking desserts listed, but the Peanut Butter and Hot Fudge Pudding Cake is what caught my eye. It turned out great! I especially enjoyed the hot fudge sauce! I love making pudding cakes in the crock pot – you just mix them up and let them cook. So easy and so good!
Peanut Butter and Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup boiling water
vanilla ice cream
Combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and baking powder. Add milk, oil, and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Stir in peanut butter. Pour into slow cooker. Mix together 1/2 cup sugar and cocoa powder. Gradually stir in boiling water. Pour mixture over batter in slow cooker. Do not stir. Cover and cook on “High” for 2 – 3 hours, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
The total cost for this recipe is just under $.70 – for the entire dish (not including the ice cream)! That’s quite a deal! This will definitely be making a regular appearance in my home!
Do you make desserts in your slow cooker? If so, what are your favorite recipes? I’d love to hear from you!
