Molten Lava Cake
When we have company come over for dinner I like to make a quick and easy dessert. This Molten Lava Cake is my go to. It’s simple to throw together and I don’t have to worry about it because it’s in the crockpot.
In a small bowl mix together 1 Cup Sugar, 1 Cup Flour, 3 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa, 2 teaspoons Baking Powder, and 1/2 teaspoon Salt. Set aside
Using a larger bowl add 1/2 Cup Milk, 2 Tablespoons melted butter and 1.2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract.
Once I have the milk, butter and vanilla combined I will add the flour mixture. Making sure to mix well.
Spray the inside of your crockpot with cooking spray. Pour the batter mixture into the bottom of the crockpot.
Sprinkle the top of the batter with one cup of Chocolate Chips. This is what makes the ooey-gooey goodness even better.
The next step is to add in a bowl: 1 3/4 Cups Hot Water, 3 Teaspoons unsweetened Cocca, and 3/4 Cup Sugar. Stir the mixture until the sugar is dissolved. Pouring the liquid lava into the crockpot, covering the batter and chocolate chips.
Turn crockpot on high for 2 hours, after the first two hours turn it to low for another two hours. This will need to cook in the crockpot for a total of 4 hours.
Serve this warm Molten Lava Cake with a scoop of ice cream and drizzle it with chocolate syrup, yummy. You’ll be the hostess with the mostess.
