Hot Fudge Spooncake

(from my sis-in-law, who quotes it from “Ready & Waiting”)

1 & 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, separated
1 cup flour
1/4 cup + 3 tbsp cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp oil or unsalted, melted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup hot water

– sift flour, 3 tbsp cocoa, baking powder & salt
– stir in 1 cup sugar
– stir in milk, oil & vanilla
– spread in 3 1/2 qt slow cooker (or roughly a 9×9 pan)
– mix together remaining 3/4 cup sugar & 1/4 cup cocoa and sprinkle evenly over top of batter
– pour in the hot water DO NOT STIR
– cover and slow cook until a toothpick inserted 1″ deep in centre comes out clean (approx. 2 hours on high) or 30 minutes @ 350F degrees in oven
– do not cook on low for a longer period of time

Note: ice cream should be mandatory, and this thing is so super easy it should be cemented in some food walk of fame.

Other news: Not much, really. It’s been busy, and this week has been specially hot. Yucky hot. OH! And JK Rowling is making an announcement in less that 7 days *squeal!* very excited. Whatever it is, it’s called Pottermore.

Yup, that’s it. Here’s a photo to commemorate where I’m at.
