  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 6 tbsp cocoa power
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup nondairy milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

To pour over:

  • 3 cups hot water


  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour in the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  • Pour the mixture into your greased 7 QT Crock-Pot Cook & Carry Easy Clean Slow Cooker.
  • For the topping, mix together the brown sugar and cocoa powder, then sprinkle evenly over the cake mixture.
  • Finally, pour the hot water all over the top - do not stir!
  • Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 3 hours. A toothpick should come cleanly out of the cake, but the bottom of the cake will have turned into a hot pudding-like mixture. If the cake isn’t done, you can continue to cook it on low in 30-minute intervals until it is.
  • Scoop out cake while warm with your favorite non-dairy ice cream!
