Double chocolate-orange pudding cake

Standard

 Filled with old-fashioned goodness, this dessert works well in a slow cooker. Orange zest and chocolate chips give it extra pizzazz.

I absolutely adore pudding cakes. This is by far the best I’ve had. I was never a big fan of orange and chocolate but this is delightful.

Makes 4-6 servings.

1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup granulated sugar (I didn’t have any and used brown sugar instead)

1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)

3 tbsp butter, melted

1 tbsp grated orange zest

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 2/3 cups hot water

 

In a medium bowl, mix together flour, granulated sugar, 3 tbsp cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir n milk, butter, orange zest and chocolate chips. Turn into 3 1/2 quart electric slow cooker.


In another bowl, mix together the brown sugar and remaining 1/4 cup cocoa until well blended. Sprinkle over the batter. Gently pour the water evenly over all: do not stir.

Cover and cook on high setting for 1 3/4 hrs-2 hrs. Do not cook on low setting for a longer time.


Serve warm or at room temperature, topped with whipped cream.

About Rita

Welcome! I'm glad to share some of what I've learned over the years with you. I try to learn new things often. Being mostly self taught usually means making a lot of mistakes first. In the kitchen this includes, baking with yeast, canning, fermenting, soaking, drying foods, grinding my own flour, making most things homemade, altering recipes to make them healthier, etc. I started sewing more complicated things, learned to knit and then taught the kids. Next was crocheting and then homeschooling. More adventures ahead...
