Some of the best cookbooks I own are from Church's or Civic Groups. I even have one that I received as a wedding gift with recipes from all of the families in the Senate and House of Representatives. One of my friends who is a fantastic cook and never measures anything (I hate her for that) once called me a cookbook whore. Well, I have to admit she is right. I have cookbooks stashed everywhere in my kitchen. A few years ago our church created their own cookbook and this is one of the recipes I submitted. I have no idea where I originally got the recipe from but it's a favorite.
Crock pot Chocolate Cake is a fluffy moist cake.
This cake is amazingly moist and fluffy almost cloud-like. You can frost it or top it with ice cream and chocolate syrup. It's perfect for people like me who don't like a lot of icing on their cake. But if you love icing just flip it out onto a cooling rack and ice it. My favorite icing is homemade cream cheese frosting. It only takes 3 hours to cook so you can be doing other things while your dessert is being made. If you time it right it will be ready when dinner is finished and you can serve it warm right out of your slow cooker.
I will warn you to be careful with a ceramic slow cooker and to check it after two and a half hours. Ceramic slow cookers tend to cook from the bottom and you don't want to burn your slow cooker chocolate cake. I swear by my Ninja Slow Cooker because it cooks from the sides and bottom and never burns my recipes. I never go back to another brand again. You can see just how perfect it cooks this cake.
