Slow Cooked Mississippi Mud Pudding Cake
White Lily self-rising flour
unsweetened cocoa powder
half & half
pure vanilla extract
toasted chopped pecans or walnuts
mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
light or dark brown sugar
hot water mixed with 2 tsp instant espresso
 oz marshmallow cream
In a large bowl, whisk together the White Lily self-rising flour, granulated sugar, and cocoa powder.
Mix-in the half & half, oil and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
Stir in 1/2 cup nuts and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. The batter will be thick.
Spray the inside of a 6-quart oval slow cooker liberally with cooking spray. Spoon the batter evenly into the slow cooker.
Dissolve the espresso in the hot water. Whisk together the hot water, cocoa powder and brown sugar until dissolved. Gently pour over the batter. Don't stir.
Place doubled paper towels over the slow cooker opening and place the lid on top. Cook on high for 2 hours.
Uncover and remove the crock from the slow cooker. Allow to rest for 20 minutes.
The cake will appear cooked on top while the pudding forms on the bottom of the slow cooker. To serve, scoop into serving dishes and spoon the pudding over the cake.
Serve warm with a dollop of marshmallow cream and a sprinkle of toasted nuts.
