I Had No Idea



Did you know that today is
National Chocolate Cake Day?
I had no idea until I read my 
email this afternoon.

This is not an official holiday and

no one really knows who created
the day but we can be happy they 
did!

*The first boxed cake mix was 

created by a company called
O Duff and Sons in the late
1920's.
*The first "just add water"
Betty Crocker  cake 
mixes came out in 1947.

In honor of this most 

delicious day I have a
recipe for you.

Slow Cooker Chocolate

Lava Cake

Cake                                               


1 Box of Betty Crocker Super           

Moist Chocolate Fudge Cake            
Mix                                                      
1 1/4 C milk                                         
1/2 C vegetable oil                           
3 eggs

Topping


1 Box (4 serv) Instant Chocolate 

Pudding Mix
2 C milk
1 bag  (12 oz.) Milk Chocolate Chips

Spray a 6 Qt. Slow cooker with cooking 

spray.
In a large bowl, beat the cake ingredients 
with an electric mixer as directed on the 
box. Pour into the slow cooker.

In a medium bowl, beat the pudding mix 

and the milk with a whisk as directed on 
the box. Pour over the cake batter--DO 
NOT STIR. Sprinkle with the chocolate 
chips.

Cover and cook on low for 2 hrs 30 minutes 

to 3 hrs or until the cake is set and the 
pudding is beginning to bubble out of the 
cake.

*To prevent burning the edges of the cake,

line the cooker with cooking parchment
paper.

Check the Betty Crocker website for reviews

of this recipe. Some had success and some
had trouble with it. Just giving you a head's
up in case there are problems. 

~Keep on Dreaming~
