Mylotters, after two failed tries to make chocolate lava cake this past spring in my crockpot, I've done it! I've just checked the cake after 1.5 hours of slow cooking this mid-afternoon. I think it was the baking cocoa than the chocolate pieces that've done the trick. I did the toothpick test with my knfe. It came out dry and not wet! Yay! I can't wait to have it for dessert tonight with ice cream. Third time is the charm! Here's a photo of my chocolate lava cake that's going to stand, while I'll cook and have dinner tonight: Raspberry lava cake, here I come in September! Next up, brownies redemption next month!

Probably it's good to eat but let me tell you, it does not look good. Do you agree?

It does look good. It's supposed to be dry with chocolate lava on top. The past two times came out as a wet mess. I haven't tasted it yet. Why do you say that?

@KristenH You have to forgive me, maybe from photography, it's not very clear. At least, from that picture, if I did not read the discussion, I would not even realize it was a cake! Maybe I should wear my glasses?

@alberello75 It's the best angle I can do with my smartphone for a close-up. It's not blurry and clear enough Maybe you should. Chocolate lava cake is a cake!

Yes indeed! My chocolate lava had stuck to my cake and my lining. I let it stand out too long. Oh well. I take a point off from the score

Am glad you succeeded as I knew you could do it! You, conquered the lava cake, then the brownies should be no problem for you !! What are you having for dinner with the lava cake? Something from the crockpot or something else from the store or oven? I am so happy for you, my friend! I hope finer is great for you and enjoy the yummy looking cake!

I hope so Jen. Me too. I was so thrilled. Crockpot for sure, not the store-brought package I had brought for my back-up plan. I had hot dogs and french fries with leftover green beans last night. Tonight I'll be doing a boca burger with steamed broccoli and leftover mashed potatoes and polenta. It was delicious last night and thanks!

@Marty1 They're not too bad. My late mother didn't like them and said they tasted like cardboard. Go for it! Thanks! I won't. I'll have some more cake later this week like tomorrow night.

I think that you have been doing a great job. Are you blogging about these crockpot adventures? That might be a food blog that would stand out.
