I love my slow cooker, aka crock pot. I mean, I event cut out a pretty big pink heart and taped it to the side of my slow cooker just for this picture. It's love, pure and simple.
I make lots and lots of yummy things with my slow cooker. Like my favorite food ever, Onion Roasted Chicken and my mom's favorite Cheddar Bacon Chicken.
But I wanted to change things up. I wanted to make sweet things with my slow cooker and not just dinner items. I mean, I've already cooked Caramel Sweetened Condensed Milk...it was so delicious. But I found myself needing more from my slow cooker, and after bombing my mom's birthday cake I was looking for something new, easy and fool proof.
Enter: Slow Cooker Chocolate Pudding Cake.
After non-stick spraying the bottom and sides of my slow cooker I whisked 1 large box of instant sugar free chocolate pudding with 3 cups of skim milk. (See it's even on the somewhat healthier side). I poured it into the slow cooker, and didn't' even bother to smooth it out for fear I would disturb the non-stick coating.
I cooked this wonderfully sweet cake for 2 1/2 hours on high. Let it stand, still covered for 20 minutes. You're going to be so tempted to open the lid before it's cooled down enough and dive right in. I know, I know, does it really make a difference? The chocolate pudding that you added in the beginning has to thicken up some or when you go to serve this you'll end up with gloppy pudding on top of a super moist cake.
Top with cool whip and try not to eat the entire cake in one sitting.
Look for more slow cooker recipes coming next week. I got my greedy hands on a few new recipes that I'm itching to try.
