Hot Fudge Cake


Recipe: Hot Fudge Cake

Summary: I’ve been making this for years in the oven, but just found instructions for making it in the crock pot. I tried it this time, and it worked like a charm. I am including the instructions at the bottom of the recipe.



  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp oil (I used canola)
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2-4 Tbsp cocoa
  • 1 3/4 cups hot water


  1. Stir together dry dough ingredients. Add milk, vanilla, oil, and nuts. Stir till well blended and spread in a greased 9″ square pan. Mix brown sugar and cocoa and sprinkle over the top. Pour hot water on top- do not mix in! Bake for about 40 minutes at 350. Serve warm with ice cream.
  2. Crock pot instructions: Spread dough in a well greased 3 1/2 quart crock pot. Bring to a boil the hot water, brown sugar, and cocoa. Pour over batter in crock pot. Cook on HIGH for 4 hours.
