Hot Fudge Spoon Cake

Slow cookers do deserts too. This one sounds really good and I can't wait to try it.

Hot Fudge Spoon Cake

3 cups milk (skim okay)
1 ( 5-ounce) box chocolate cook and serve pudding
1 (18.25-ounce) Betty Crocker's Super moist Chocolate cake mix, dry
1 1/3 cup water
1/2 cup applesauce
6 egg whites

Spray slowcooker with cooking spray
With a whisk mix the milk with the pudding in the cooker until disolved.
In a medium sized bowl with a whisk mix the dry cake mix, water, applesauce, and egg whites together for 2 minutes or until well blended.
Gently pour the cake batter into the middle of the not cooked pudding mixture in the slow cooker.
Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 hours.
Serve hot with ice cream. Do not invert this dessert. Spoon the servings from the slow cooker.

Note: If desired after 2 1/2 hours of cooking, unplug the slow cooker. The dessert will stay warm and delicious for hours. It travels well to potlucks or social gatherings.
Note: The cake will firm as if it were baked, yet the pudding will still be thick and creamy. When serving make sure you reach to the bottom of the slow cooker to get the creamy pudding with each serving of cake.
Yield 15 servings
