Meet Mr. Fudge Cake.  He’s hot, sweet, delightfully rich, and when he’s gone, you can’t stop thinking about him.  You might just fall head over heels for him.  He’s pretty irresistible.

Happy Friday Y’all.  Oh, did I mention this dessert is a slow cooker recipe??  Yes Ma’am.  You’re welcome.

Hot Fudge Spoon Cake
Serves 6

1 c. all-purpose flour
1 3/4 c. brown sugar, packed and divided
1/4 c. plus 3 T. baking cocoa, divided
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. milk
2 T. butter, melted
1/2 t. vanilla
1 3/4 c. hot water
optional:  Vanilla Ice Cream

1.  Combine flour, one cup brown sugar, 3 T. cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  Whisk in milk, butter, and vanilla.  Spread evenly in a slow cooker.
2.  Mix together remaining 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 c. cocoa.  Sprinkle evenly over top of batter.
3.  Pour in hot water; do not stir.  Cover and cook on high setting for 2 hours or until a toothpick inserted one inch deep comes out clean.
4.  Spoon warm cake into bowls; top with vanilla ice cream, if desired.

Note:  I used a 3 qt. crockpot for this recipe.  You can’t use a large crock pot for this recipe or it won’t turn out right.
