  • Grease the inside of a 6 quart crock pot.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center.
  • To the well, add milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract then whisk it together until combined.
  • Spread the batter evenly into the greased crock pot.
  • For the topping: whisk together the sugar, brown sugar and cocoa powder. Whisk in the boiling water until smooth.
  • Pour the topping over the batter. DO NOT STIR.
  • Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours. No peeking until the 3 hour mark and check the cake with a toothpick. If there are only a few crumbs on the cake it's done.
  • The cake can sit on warm setting until ready to serve, but no longer than 2 hours.
  • Remove lid 30 minutes before serving to help evaporate any extra unwanted moisture on the cake.
  • Serve warm with your favorite toppings: ice cream, whipped cream or fresh fruit.
