This skinny slow cooker chocolate pudding cake was an instant hit with my chocolate dessert loving family
Ingredients
  • 1 cup dry all-purpose baking mix (I used Bisquick Heart Smart)
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons plus ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
  • ½ cup milk (I used coconut milk beverage)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2/3 cups hot water
Instructions
  1. I used my 4-Quart slow cooker.
  2. Spray the inside of your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the baking mix, ½ cup sugar, 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, milk and vanilla until well blended.
  4. Pour the batter evenly into the slow cooker.
  5. In a clean bowl, mix the remaining ½ up sugar, ⅓ cup cocoa powder and hot water until well blended.
  6. Pour over the batter in the slow cooker.
  7. DO NOT STIR!
  8. Cover and cook on HIGH 2 to 3 hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake-y part comes out clean. (There will be a thick chocolate pudding-like sauce beneath the cake.)
  9. Serve warm plain or with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream. Or squirt of whipped cream. Just be sure to adjust your Points accordingly.
