Wilting due to the record-breaking heatwave? Well, welcome to my front porch and a great way to keep your cool and a little shade will make your day. No need to stop all baking…just take it outside!
So, this is where the action is! Lovely with my decor, don’t you think? My porch smells luscious too, while I’m rocking and reading storybooks to my littlest grand girl, so fun…more about her soon!
This is all you need for a family treat that serves 8-12 appreciative fans. Throw all but the vanilla chips in a big mixing bowl and whirl away for 2 minutes. I also decided to add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to my cake, cause we all just love a good dose of vanilla! Stir in vanilla chips…Grease or spray your crock so the cake won’t stick. Set your timer for 5 hours. It takes 5 to 6 hours depending on your pot. Yes it will burn…you can relax, not leave town!
Now, put it in a sweet shady spot, and plug it in! Whoo-whoo…Please come back for the big reveal in just 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours, when we will be dishing it out for you! So now drum roll please…the baked cake comes to the top of a 3 quart crock pot.
Just spoon it out and add a little ice cream and topping. I made a simple huckleberry sauce. Our home is comfortable and cool, and you will find that no matter how you make this it is a real treat four seasons out of the year.
Ah-ha: I always serve this with ice cream and often a sauce when I’m at home or traveling in our RV. My car has a socket in the back and I love to put my pot in a box and let the cake bake while we are traveling through Yellowstone Park for our picnic, rafting down a river, or playing in winter snow! Just know, this cake doesn’t just bake on your porch.
