I just tried this recipe recently and it was awesome! My recipe comes from the Rival Crock Pot cookbook. It calls for 1 cup flour,1 cup sugar(1/2 cup with cocoa for fudge topping),1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder,2/3 cup milk,2 tablespoons vegetable oil,1 teaspoon vanilla,1/2 cup peanut butter,1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder and the same 1 cup boiling water. I used my 5 quart crock pot, so I doubled it and glad I did. It is so good warm!
Definitely not worth the calories!!!!
This is a good cake for a night that you just can't be home to make the real thing - but not something I'd have a regular basis. Lots of fudge sauce at the bottom to spoon over top of the ice cream. Definitely will need ice cream with this to make it a complete dessert. VERY RICH too. I was very surprised how the cake part turned out so well with so much sauce at the bottom! Definitely a fun "experiment". Thanks for posting! Made for the I Recommend Tag Game.
I've made this exact same recipe Audrey M, only mine is baked in a 1.5 quart casserole @ 400* for about 30 minutes. I am going to try it in the crockpot. Thank-you.
I blew away all the ladies at our annual Christmas Party with this one!! All we needed was a larger crockpot and the recipe doubled -- we fought over the bowl!!
Makes a great easy dessert! I love pudding cakes for weeknight meals. They're easy, pretty lowfat, and everyone loves them. This one made in the crockpot is even easier and the peanut butter flavor is a nice change. When cooked, a layer of fudge sauce will be on the bottom and peanut butter cake on top. Great with vanilla ice cream. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2007.
I also doubled it since I have a very large crockpot - and while the flavor was good, it was a bit dry - I may try adding a bit more milk or an egg next time.
I followed the recipe exactly and for some reason it turned out very runny with little cake. The flavor was good though. Maybe add less water?
The peanut butter was really a nice "surprise" from the regular chocolate type cake. I thought the recipe was about half size so I doubled everything up to the 6th step. Used the same cook time and it turned out just great!! Served with ice cream, it was a desert fit for a King. . . or Queen!! Thanks again Audrey.
