Slow Cooker: The Best Cookbook Ever. It really is a pretty good book and includes this dessert. I have the recipe for the oven version of this cake but hadn't thought about adapting it to the slowcooker. Glad that this author did!
1/2 c milk
3 T butter, melted
1 t vanilla bean paste (I used vanilla extract)
1 c sugar
1 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder
2 t baking pwder
3/4 c brown sugar
1 3/4 c boiling water.
Coat the slow cooker insert with cooking spray. Stir together the milk, butter, and vanilla. Gradually stir in the sugar, flour, 1/4 c cocoa and baking powder. Spread the batter into the slow cooker insert.
Mix together brown sugar and remaining 1/4 c cocoa and sprinkle over the batter. Pour in the boiling water but do not stir. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Uncover and and allow to cool for 20 minutes or so.
