Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder divided
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine salt
  • 1/2 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 6 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 60 g bittersweet chocolate (60% cacao) finely chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups boiling water

For serving

  • powdered sugar
  • fresh berries
  • vanilla ice cream

Instructions
 

  • Coat a 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray; set aside.
  • Whisk the flour, granulated sugar, 2/3 cup of the cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and espresso powder together in a large bowl. Add the egg, egg yolk, milk, oil, and vanilla and stir until combined. Pour the batter into the slow cooker. Sprinkle the remaining 1/3 cup cocoa powder and the brown sugar over the top of the batter. Scatter the chopped chocolate evenly over the top. Pour in the water, but do not stir.
  • Cover and cook on the LOW setting until the cake pulls away from the edge and the center of the cake wobbles slightly, 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours. You will see some bubbling around the edges. Spoon into serving dishes, dust with powdered sugar, and serve with fresh berries and vanilla ice cream.
