Slow Cooked Chocolate Brownie Cake Slice with Coconut Cream and Maple Syrup

Slow cooking is a great way to get dinner on the table without too much fuss. A few years ago I made my Nan’s Rice Pudding in the slow cooker. So this led me to start thinking about the different desserts I could cook in my cooker pot.

It took me a long time to start cooking desserts in the slow cooker but I finally made a delicious chocolate brownie. The brownie was sweet and gooey and it made a yummy pudding after our Sunday lunch. My family and I really enjoyed this dish and my mum had two portions so I know it’s a great dessert. Well worth a try.
