Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

It’s magic! A rich hot fudge sauce forms while the cake bakes. Yum!

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

Cooling the dessert in the slow cooker gives the sauce time to thicken so it’s rich and fudgy. Top off this chocolate lover’s treat with what else but a scoop of ice cream and a long-stemmed cherry!
