Lavaliciousness straight from your slow cooker! Here's how to make Triple-Chocolate Lava Cake the super smart and easy way...
Be they called Crock Pots or slow cookers at your house, there's no end to the delight this snazzy kitchen appliances can bring into one autumn day.
You can toss together a roast. Pull together some pulled pork Or you can forget the whole "responsible dinner making" gig and just head straight to dessert.
Yeppers. You can so make a cake -- an actual, real-live, lavalicious cake in your slow cooker. And it's crazy easy, too. Wanna see how easy? Just scroll on down for our photo tutorial. Yeah. We love you that much.
Mix together a Betty Crocker Chocolate Cake mix, toss it into your slow cooker, then grab a can of Betty Crocker chocolate frosting.
Spoon giant mounds of frosting all over the top of the cake batter. Make sure you get the edges! We need to ensure proper lava-liciousness all over the cake.
Use a knife or spatula to swirl the frosting and batter together. Just scoop the top layer of the batter up gently and swirl swirl swirl!
Cover and cook that baby on high for about 2-3 hours. Time will vary slightly depending on your slow cooker, but you'll know it's done because the edges will spring back when touched lightly with a finger, and the center will be gooey but not batter-like.
Now for the best part, nab yourself a spoon and scoop a giant heap of the cake right onto your plate. Just scoop it like it's 1999, then party it up with a spoon.
Feeling feisty? A dollop of whipped cream or ice cream up top will finish off your cake like a diamond collar on a kitty cat. Meow.Brooke blogs at Cheeky Kitchen where she shares fun family recipes.
