TIME: Prep: 20 min.

Cook: 2 hours

Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg white
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup molasses
1 cup water
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Pour into a greased 3-qt. slow cooker. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Combine hot water and butter; pour over batter (do not stir). Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted near the center of cake comes out clean. Turn off heat. Let stand for 15 minutes. Serve warm. Yield: 6-8 servings.


This one is yummy!! If you have a larger crockpot shrink the cooking time down to an hour and 1/2. It looks undone when really is done, there will be a little melted butter left in the middle. ...watch for "burning" on the edges, it's done if this happens a little.

Serve with ice cream or sweetened whipcream.
