The Country Cook: Crock Pot Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

Crock Pot Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

I have such a fun recipe to share today! I previewed a photo of this recipe on facebook a couple of days ago and I was so surprised by how many of y'all were excited for me to share this one. Have you ever made a cake in your slow cooker? Did you know you could make a cake in your slow cooker? Well, it turns out you can. And it can turn out really good too!
This particular recipe comes from the new Goosberry Patch cookbook, Slow Cooking All Year 'Round. If y'all follow my blog, then you know I'm a fan of these Gooseberry Patch cookbooks. Why? Because they are chock full of recipes from everyday home cooks. These are real recipes made in real people's kitchens everyday.
No test recipes here. Do you ever feel when you buy a new cookbook sometimes and try some of the recipes that you wonder, "Did anyone actually make this??" With so many recipes coming at you from all different angles these days because of the internet and all the thousands of new cookbooks, it's hard to know the good from the bad.Lots of recipes are not tested. Some aren't ever made more than once by the recipe creators. But not these recipes. These are tried and true recipes from folks that are your friends, your neighbors and maybe even your Mom and Grandma! Real, everyday recipes (225 to be exact). Sure, we all like to tweak a recipe here and there to make it our own but you know when you try these recipes, the recipe as a whole will work and taste good. This particular book focuses on the slow cooker (a.k.a. the Crock Pot). It gives recipes that can help you use your Crock Pot all year round. Some folks are more inclined to use theirs in the summer months so they don't have to turn on the oven and heat up the house. But it can be used all the time. And y'all know how much I love my slow cooker, so I was so excited to get this cookbook in my hands!
There are recipes in here for soups, stews, beans, sides, drinks and even dessert! And you know it was the chocolate dessert that screamed out to me to be made. I had to try it as soon as I saw it because I was curious why it was called a Hot Fudge Sundae Cake.  I thought, "Where's the fudge part?" Well, you will see!
Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup baking cocoa powder (divided use)
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
3 cups hot water
Directions:
Spray a 2-3 quart slow cooker (see my note above about the size of the slow cooker) with nonstick cooking spray. For baking, I like to use this kind that has flour in it.
In a bowl, sift together flour, sugar, 4 tablespoons cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
I don't own a flour sifter so I just took a long-tined fork and stirred it up real good.
Then stir in milk, oil and vanilla extract.
Give it all a good stir until combined, then fold in nuts (if using). Spread batter evenly into your slow cooker.
In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar and remaining cocoa powder.
Stir in hot water until smooth.
Pour evenly over batter in slow cooker.
DO NOT STIR. I'm breaking out the Caps Lock here to emphasize :)
Cover and cook on high setting for 2-2 1/2 hours (it took about  2 1/2 hours for mine to bake).
To test if it is done, stick a toothpick into the center.  If it comes out clean (with no cake batter hanging on it), then it is done. Let cake stand, uncovered for 30-40 minutes before serving. 
So what happens is, on the top, you will have your cake layer. Underneath that cake layer is your fudge sauce. So slice up your cake (it's okay if it falls apart a little bit on you, this cake comes out very moist). Spoon it up on a plate or bowl. Then scoop up some of that hot fudge sauce that is on the bottom, and drizzle a bit of that on top of your cake.
I think it definitely calls for a scoop of ice cream!
Enjoy!

  4. I use my crockpot all the time! We make roast beef with carrots and potatoes, roast pork with an applesauce glaze (has cumin and garlic in it....REALLY good!) and I just started making overnight steel cut oatmeal. So yummy and nice to wake up to a warm breakfast!

  7. I've always liked to use my crock pot for meals. Now I need tried and true recipes for sure. Our daughter and 3 granddaughters have move in with us and I work 10 to 12 hours a day. They are picky eaters and I hate having to ask my husband for help with the cooking. It would be great knowing that I can throw it all in a crock pot and come home to a homecooked meal. capsey@eaglecom.net

  8. I just made ham and bean soup yesterday in mine, no stirring, no worrying about it overcooking or undercooking, and it was delicious! I have a large oval one and a 4.5 qt one, so I can have two going at once if I want to.... thanks for the recipes. And O-H...

  16. I don't use my crock pot nearly enough! I love it because it makes things easier and less time consuming. I just don't know enough recipes or how it really converts from time in the oven.

  25. Hi Brandie! Thanks to you and Gooseberry Patch for this giveaway! I love to use my crock-pot, but I don't have very many recipes for it. I probably only use it about once a month. I would love more crock-pot recipes so I could use it at least once a week! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama! randycofield@bellsouth.net

  28. I have a 6 quart slow cooker, we are a family of 6. I like it but should probably have a smaller one also. I have done a few roasts in it, but we mainly do soups in it. My current favorite is chicken enchilada soup, with homemade enchilada sauce.

  31. Love my crockpots...all 4 different sizes. After 49 years of marriage I got smart and use it once or twice a week. Mac N cheese is a favorite to take to potlucks, many chicken recipes, as well beef, and lasagna. My newlywed granddaughter uses the one I bought her almost everyday since she works full time. Would love this cookbook for her!

  35. I love my slow cooker for main dish suppers. I work at a local school until 4 PM and my husband leaves for work at 5:30 PM. So nice to get supper on the table and we can eat as a family before he leaves. Pinned recipe on my Pinterest board and am following Gooseberry Patch on Pinterest.

  37. I love crock pot/ slow cooker recipes. I love that everything can be fixed in one pot and left to cook without needing much attention, if any. I have a few different sizes of them and use them quite regularly. Summer is nice since no oven is needed too. I can't wait to try the Hot Fudge Sundae Cake recipe!

  38. We have several crockpots. 3 2quart size for sides during parties and holidays. 1 8qt for everyday meals and an 18 qt Electric roaster that I use for parties as a crockpot!

  41. Gooseberry Patch liked and followed!

    I love my crock pots. I own three ranging from a mini to an 8 qt. I use my mini to burn oils so my house smells nice and the other two I use at least a few times a week. I make anything and everything in there ranging from appetizers to maindishes and desserts. Just yesterday I made a hearty soup in it and we had warm bowls to eat throughout the day.

    My crockpots cannot be replaced. I love them!

  49. I have the small Crock Pot as I live in my little 19' house on wheels aka a travel trailer and space is a commodity that is in short supply in here.LOL I've not used the pot much as it was rather buried behind other items of household goods till I got smart a couple of weeks ago and gave away my t.v. which was taking up a nice little chunk of counter space. I now have my baby Crock Pot, baby rice cooker and baby fryer on that counter and have been enjoying the fact I can actually cook in them now! Made some terrific split pea soup last week and as soon as I get off here I'll be starting the hot fudge cake! The house is going to smell "MARVELOUS, darlin'"!!! LOL Thanks for the recipe and the giveaway. I hope I win cause I love crockpot-ing as much as I love cookbooks! And, yes, I too love Gooseberry Patch books, have a few on my Kindle already!

  55. Well, I see for some reason I am known as "Unknown" according to my ealier comment. While I am sort of homeless since I live in a 19' travel trailer (according to the state of Texas at any rate) and that let's me move my house with me whenever I want it, doesn't qualify me as a unknown! LOL Don't know what is wrong with Google today, so I'll give you my stats in this note so maybe I can have that cookbook! I go by mtrver@gmail.com under Google and as Kathy to FB and the world in general. Yes I do like Gooseberry Patch on FB, have for some time.

  56. Our family loves the crock pot all year long, we make at least one meal a week in ours, if not two! And, freezer meals for the crock pot are fabulous, it makes getting a hot meal on the table during a busy week even easier. I have yet to try making a desert in the crock pot, but am going to make the recipe above soon. I love your blog, and when my sister was visiting last fall I showed it to her and she has been using it for recipies as well.

  77. HEY, I have a crock pot that small and now I know what to use it for :D Could also use a crock-pot cook-book! Loaned mine out to my brother years ago, and never saw it after that...But he swore he used it to make a corned beef without any water in the pot and it came out better than any he ever had. Hmmmm-I would have tried it but he lived in another state. Don't have the guts to test his method, might crack my dearly beloved crock! Anyway, here is where you can write to tell me that I've won, hon! :D abinaprojectministries@gmail.com

  116. What a coincidence, we made a beef roast in the crock pot today, couldn't decide between Italian beef or French Dip so we are just leaving it as a roast for a change. I actually do have a smaller crock pot that came w/my husband haha that would be fine for this recipe, wish I had seen it earlier because as I took a little sample taste of the roast I thought it needed a little something to finish it off, you know, like a Texas Sheet cake. I could have had this going alongside and it would have been done about the time we finished eating. Next time :)

  120. I have 2 of the smallest crockpots, 2 of the original round pots & was given the set with 3 different size pots, 4-5-6qts & 1 base. I use them all @ different times. One of my favorite things is to use the 6qt for simmering roasted bones for bone soup. So many uses for them all!! Thank you for this great giveaway, would like to own this cook book

  128. What a great looking recipe - makes me want to try it right away! I like to use my crock pot to make pot roast, spaghetti sauce, chili verde, and chicken dishes. I've seen the recent explosion of ideas for cakes in crock pots and will definitely be trying this out. Thanks for a great contest!

  129. Hi! I printed out the recipe for Crock Pot Hot Fudge Sundae Cake so I can make it sometime. I have used the crock pot for many dishes but I like chili in it the best! One of my crock pots is the old kind that just has on or off and the newer one has settings for different lengths of time but it seems to cook hotter than the old one. I am definitely going to make this soon! Chocoholic here! nancywho51@yahoo.com

  130. I used to use my crock pot a lot but am wanting to start using it more. I just had to replace the crockpot I got as a wedding gift 41 years ago!!
    I am looking for recipes to use. This one is great!
    I posted the recipe on Pinterest. I already liked Gooseberry Patch on Facebook and am a follower on Pinterest.

  131. I own 7 "crockpots" (slow cookers) and I am always using one for something. I have 4 that have the lock on lid that my husband uses at work when he brings dinner to the crew. I've made the usual and unusual. I have an 18 quart one that is a must during canning season for making fruit butters,spagetti sauce, tomato sauce, etc.
    I have a cake and bread baker tin that I use to make goodies in the summer on the screen porch. That way I am not heating the house with the oven.
    I really enjoy your site. Thank you!!

  136. I love using my crock pot, especially during the summer. Don't have to heat up the kitchen that way. I have heard about making cakes in a crock pot, but it's one of those things that intimidates me....My luck, I would screw things up. I am looking forward to trying this recipe. I like the idea of the chocolate sauce.

  141. this cake is awesome. Especially served warm with ice cream. I use my crockpot a few times a week. I also use my little one that is for dips, to put water and cinnamon or other spices in, just to simmer and make the house smell like I have cooking for hours. LOL As I was taught to cook using a little of this and that, and not necessarily a recipe, these are the only type cookbooks that I use. Tried and True home cooking. gdk0925@yahoo.com

  146. My crockpot used to be used a lot but Dave, my husband, died and I stopped eating. Lately, I've begun making meals and eating again so the crockpot sits on the counter and is used every week. Far easier to cook a meal and then eat until it's gone. At the library today, I saw a newly published crockpot cookbook that was totally unappealing. The good thing about Gooseberry Patch, all the recipes have been taste tested by real families, not cookbook authors.

  156. I just bought my first Crockpot a couple of months ago. I wanted to make preparing dinner easier and less time consuming since I want to resume my career as a night shift nurse and still have a decent meal for my family to eat. I am hooked! I hit up all my friends for their favorite Crockpot recipes, and I'm still looking for more great recipes. The Crockpot is one of the greatest appliances ever invented. Just wish I'd have gotten one much sooner.

  160. I have an oval crockpot and I used it today. So easy to make a pot roast. I cook part of the vegetables and meat on high for awhile then turn it down. I add the potatoes later in the day as I like small chunks. My left over post roast will become beef stew in the crockpot tomorrow by adding some tomatoes, and juice and seasonings. I use the crockpot about once a week.
