Eggless Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake

SlowCookerCake

The second recipe that I am trying from the top 100 dishes is the slow cooker chocolate lava cake. I never thought of baking in slow cooker. When I saw this recipe I was super amazed and tried it right away but without eggs though. This time I used the Egg Replacer powder as the egg substitute.

This recipe was super easy as it uses the store-bought cake mixes. (Please see the pics below) These readily available in all grocery stores. (I got them from Safeway) Vaandu who loves white chocolate, asked me to use white chocolate chips instead of brown. This time I went with egg replacer powder. For one egg, you need to mix 1 tbsp of egg replacer with 3 tbsps of water. I think this change according the brand. So if you are using the egg replacer powder follow the instructions given in the cover.

The main rule in baking is using the exact measures and the ingredient measures are always proportional to the baking ware size. You cannot pour a ¼ sheet cake mix into a full sheet cake pan. But that’s what I did here. In this recipe they have used the 4-quart slow cooker but mine is 6-quart. The cake came out awesome but I couldn’t get the desired thickness. The Choco lava was oozing out when I made the slices but at the same time it was falling apart too. The taste was awesome so the slices didn’t matter. One of our friends got to taste this cake also and she was also amazed by the fact that it was slow cooked.

 

And with the leftover scraping and cake, I prepared this cake balls. The Choco lava acted as the binding agent so I didn’t add additional butter or cream. Just made the balls, inserted the pop sticks and drizzled some blue sugar crystals and refrigerated them for an hour. That’s it. Here they are,

Baking in slow cooker has opened up a whole new world to me. I can’t wait to experiment other cakes now.

Ingredients:
