Very few people refuse chocolate cake, as adults and children love chocolate.
Therefore, it is very rare to refuse a chocolate cake, even if there is not a single gram of chocolate in it. But you can cook cakes not only in the oven or in the pan, but also in the slow cooker. This cute, small girlfriend of any modern hostess.
How often do you bake cakes for your family? Usually, a working mother bakes herself only once a week on weekends, and on other days something “for tea” is bought at the nearest store.
But if there is a multicooker in the house, then you should not spend fabulous money to buy cookies or shop tori, since it is very quick and easy to make delicious pastries with this unit. If you do not decorate the cake with roses and other beautiful delicacies, but confine yourself to regular sour cream, then the chocolate cake in the slow cooker will take no more than 1.5 hours. And this does not mean that you constantly have to hang around in the kitchen, the device prepares everything yourself.
The time spent on making dough and cream is so insignificant that they make up a maximum of 20 minutes. This means that you can play 1 hour 10 minutes with children, check homework with schoolchildren or relax in front of the TV.
It is worth considering the recipes of cakes that can be made into a miracle pot using chocolate or a substitute for it.
Some chocolate cake recipes
As mentioned above, any recipe takes no more than 20 minutes of useful time, the rest is waiting for snacks. If, in addition to the multicooker, a mixer is found in the house, time will also decrease.
Any of the proposed recipes can be baked, not only on weekends, but even coming from work.

That’s all, get the mixer and whisk until a homogeneous state of the mass. It will take no more than 7 minutes, even with a low power mixer.
Bowl multicookers lining the parchment crosswise. The edges of the parchment should almost reach the top of the bowl. Pour the dough into this design and set the baking mode for 60 minutes.
The data is shown for the 900W multi-cooker, if you have a little lower, then add 5 minutes. While the cake is baking, we make any cream. This cake with proteinaceous cream looks beautiful, for which beat 4 proteins with 0.5 cups of sugar. If this is an everyday cake, then you should not make decorations, and you can whip on the steam bath in just five minutes.
Sour cream is also suitable.
We look at how long it took us — only 15-20 minutes for all the preparation, even the cream has already arrived. After the call of the monster, we take the cake out of the bowl for the ends of the parchment, cool it and wrap it in cling film — leave it for 2 hours.
After that, cut the cake into 2 cakes and coat the cakes and sides with cream.
What have we spent most of the time on? Right — on the wait.
During this time, you can remake a bunch of cases, your presence in the kitchen is not required.

Then we repeat everything, as in the previous recipe, line the paper and pour out the dough. We set for 50 minutes in baking mode.
Readiness can be checked with a long stick for Chinese food. True, I cut this stick into two equal parts along the entire length, it turns out to check with a thin stick better and the trace of its penetration into the cake is not very wide.
After cooking, the cake should cool down. To do this, take it out for the ends of the parchment and lay it on the grid for steaming.
The cream for this cake can also be made chocolate.
For this you need cocoa — 3 tbsp, butter — 1 pack and condensed milk — 1 can.
Beat everything thoroughly, then divide the cooled cake into 3 equal parts and coat it with cream, fully collect it.
On holidays, you can decorate it with white or black chocolate icing, or you can make a Yin-Yang pattern and combine both kinds of icing on the top of the cake.
It seems that any chocolate cake will not give up glazing, the taste becomes much brighter. Another point on the experiments with creams.
Almost all creams are suitable for chocolate sponge cake, each new cream will give it a new taste. You can choose one of your favorite recipes and make a new cream every time.

Well, here again — dry to dry. Sift all dry foods, except sugar (no need to sift sugar — pour it as it is) into a bowl and mix.
Then beat the eggs, add the vegetable oil in them and beat them too. This is where the most interesting thing begins — pour a quarter cup of milk into the egg mixture, then put a quarter of the dry mixture and knead.
Then again a quarter cup of milk and again a quarter of the mixture — repeat until both are over. Then we put the kettle and we need not just a glass of boiled water, but just freshly boiled.
Pour water into the resulting dough, lubricate the bowl of the multicooker with oil and pour out the batter. Baking mode and time 1 hour 20 minutes are required.
After this time, we take out the finished cake, having previously checked its readiness with a wooden stick at full height. Cool, cut into 2 or three parts and coat with your favorite cream, the recipe of which is most often used.
The cake is ready, invite home to the table, pre-boil the kettle again.
With simple recipes without fillers figured out, let’s try to add something to the dough.
In this recipe for making chocolate cake take raisins.
But if you do not really like this product, then replace it with dried apricots or prunes in the same quantity. Only one and the other will have to be finely chopped, making slices the size of a raisin.

Next, we introduce one egg, without stopping the mixer. If you have a stationary mixer on the stand, it will take less time to prepare the test.
Now sift the cocoa, soda and flour in the dough and whip again.
The last to visit our cake raisins, which should be rolled in flour.
Mix everything, coat the bowl of the multicooker with oil and pour out the dough. Set the baking mode for 45 minutes and wait.
