Well here it is my friends. The wonderful cake I was telling you about, that was baking in my CROCKPOT! I know there are many, many awesome things you can do in a crockpot, but I seriously had never heard of baking cakes in them! I was over at Tasty Kitchen checkin out all the great recipes, when I came across this cake.
I was so intrigued. A cake to be made in a crockpot sounded genius and amazing to me! Especially because it was a 'Lava' cake. I am in-love with the Moulten Chocolate Lava cake at Chilis restaraunt! Have any of you had that sinful treat? I LOVE it like no other. I think that Chocolate Lava Cakes are the greatest invention ever! I am such a choc-o-holic that I just could not resist printing this recipe and trying it immediatley.
It turned out simply AMAZING. It is warm... gooey... chocolatey bliss! You have to serve it with vanilla ice cream. Theres just no other way to eat it. Period. You can thank me later for telling you about it! ; )
