It looks like winter is coming to and end (if it hasn’t already). If you’re so over the soups and stews, why not use your slow cooker to make something else?

Some recipes are already so easy to make but when you throw the slow cooker into the equation, things get unbelievably simple!

Feeling adventurous?

Try this easy-to-make warm brownie that’s gooey on the inside and slightly crisp around the edges.

Prep time is next to nothing and cooking is so hands’ free!

Warm Gooey Slow Cooker Brownie


What you need
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted, and some extras for greasing purposes (1 stick is 110g/4oz)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup all-purpose flour/plain flour
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks

This recipe is for a 4L to 6L slow cooker. If you have a larger one, you can always double the amount of ingredients to suit the size.

Line your slow cooker with a large piece of foil so that you can remove your dessert easily afterwards.
Butter the foil generously.
Mix the melted butter, sugar, cocoa powder, flour, eggs, vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl and whisk together.
Fold in the chocolate chunks.
Pour the batter out into your slow-cooker in an even layer.
Cover and cook on low for 3 hours. When the cake is set around the edges and gooey in the centre, it’s ready!
You can serve the cake warm on its own or top with ice cream in a bowl.

    Doubt it, as dislike ‘brownie-type’ of cake/biscuit.
    Also, just soooo yankified!

    I am new to using a Slow Cooker and wd love to make this but don’t like the idea of using foil as a lining as it can transfer some nasty chemicals when heated esp for a long period. Can I use baking paper instead?

    Love to try it, but what is meant by chocolate chunks? Not a term I’m familiar with.

      You can buy these in the cooking aisle of the supermarket.
