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.
