Can you believe this is the first time I’ve made anything with a slow cooker?!  Yes, you’ve read that right!  I have finally brought to you, URBAN BAKES’ first slow cooker recipe!

I swear, sometimes I feel as if I’ve been living under a rock when it comes to small kitchen appliances and I say this because I was raised simple.  Microwave, toaster and…. I think that’s it.  None of this fancy schmancy tools they have now for deep frying, or for creating waffles, or homemade ice cream.  And don’t get me wrong; I’m not complaining.  I love this thing!  The slow cooker is one heck of a genius piece of equipment.

Great for Summer months as I now live in the desert (which means my “East coast summer” started back in the beginning of March!).  It’s a no brainer here to utilize this as much as possible during this time of the year.  So expect to see more slow cooker recipes coming 🙂

But to not go off on a tangent of how impressed I am about the endless creations with now owning a slow cooker [huge smile], I want to focus back on this delicious cake!   After all, I’m pretty sure that’s why you’re here.

Inspired by the delicately warm Chocolate Fudge Cake, the inclusion of malt is a simple yet innovative way of giving depth to the traditional chocolate flavor.  In addition, the process of cooking a sponge cake rather than baking one has been a goal of mine since the first time it was seen at this food conference.  (Now I check this off my cooking bucket list)

And if you’re curious in finding more ways to use malted milk powder in your desserts, don’t forget to check out these cookies and this vanilla version of a cake.
