Had to get my thinking cap on this morning to try and think how I would do the giveaway for this month... It took me a while to find it but I finally did.. Now that I have organized my home a bit more it is hard to find things.. LOL.. Anyway what we are going to do for March is that I need recipe ideas.. I know that you all have favorite recipes so you need to share . Please send me your recipe through facebook or email and it will give you an entry for the giveaway... Then next month (April) I will choose one of those recipes in my blog . Get those cookbooks our girls and guys cause I know that you will really like March`s Giveaway !!!
I have chosen this recipe for the crockpot cause my niece Hayley seems to always make comments on my Crockpot Wednesday so this is one that is a bit different . I am sure her family will enjoy.. here is her blog... http://reemseats.blogspot.com/
1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
6 T. butter
2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate(I use chocolate chips)
2/3 cup sugar
3 T. dutch processed cocoa powder
1 T. vanilla (I use less~about 1/2 tsp.)
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup milk
1 egg yolk
Hot Fudge ingredients
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup hot water
Coat the inside of a 2 1/2 quart to 5 quart slow cooker or crock pot with cooking spray.
Whisk together flour and baking powder in a medium bowl and set aside.
In a large bowl, melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler.
Whisk the 2/3 cup of sugar, 3 T of cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, milk and egg yolk into the melted butter and chocolate.
Add the flour mixture and stir until thoroughly mixed.
Pour the batter in the slow cooker and spread it evenly. It will be thick. It's OK. You didn't do anything wrong. Just spread it out.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the hot fudge ingredients. Pour over the batter in the slow cooker. It will be very thin. Don't sweat it. It will still turn out. I promise.
Cover and cook on high for 1 1/4 to 2 1/4 hours, depending on the size of your cooker. (Try not to lift the lid to peek. Every time you take the lid off, you increase the cooking time by almost 15 minutes. It's hard, because this looks really interesting when it cooks. But try not to.) When the cake is done, it will be very moist and floating on the hot fudge. You'll know it's ready when the edges of the cake are pulling away from the sides of the cooker. When it's done, turn off the cooker and let the cake set for about 25 minutes.
This recipe is for only about 4-5 servings so I usually double it...I like to cook this on a Monday cause that is my Laundry day and by the time that I am finished my laundry the cake is done and then Grumpy has cake for his tea time .
