  1. Coat the inside of a slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda together in a bowl. Whisk peanut butter, sour cream, melted butter, almond extract, and 2 tablespoons boiling water in a separate bowl until smooth. Stir flour mixture into peanut butter mixture to make a very thick batter. Scoop batter into prepared slow cooker.
  3. Whisk white sugar, cocoa powder, and 2 cups of boiling water in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Pour chocolate mixture over batter in slow cooker.
  4. Cook on High until cake begins to pull away from the sides of the cooker and feels firm on top, about 1 1/2 hours. Allow to cool 15 minutes before serving. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Tried this recipe and it turned out amazing! So moist and so incredibly wonderful! I was a bit hesitant to cook this in a crock pot, but the ease of it surprised me. My dessert was cooking while I was making dinner and it wasn't taking up my regular cooking space! I would definitely make this again and shared the recipe with friends tonight on facebook! The picture I posted is of it still cooking :) the finished product looks much different :)

I tried this the other night, and it turned out OK. But it was still very soupy after 1.5 hours on high, and the almond extract tends to overpower the peanut butter flavor. If I try it again, I'll use a little less than the 2 cups of boiling water and only 1/2 tsp of almond extract at most.

This was really good! I was surprised that the cake was so moist and made such a chocolatey pudding. Perfect for an easy dessert on a cold night!

A little dry and not as rich as I hoped. Not difficult to prepare, however, and the convenience of the slow cooker is wonderful. Will try again but not quite sure how to moisten up. Maybe poke some holes in it before pouring the chocolate mixture to allow it to seep in. Good luck!

Our oven died and I had to make cake for my husband's birthday. This recipe saved the day. It was delish. I didn't think it was soupy at all.

Rich, chocolatey and peanutbutterey... trifecta. My new favorite dessert.

I tried this dessert for our Valentine's Day dessert. I think the amount of water was fine. It didn't come out soupy. We didn't think it tasted that good, especially compared to the other desserts on the site. It was edible and didn't taste as good as it sounded. Wouldn't make it again.

This was quite good, I followed the recipe exactly except I substituted plain greek yogurt for the sour cream. It's called pudding cake so I expected it would have some degree of gooeyness...Mine was like cake around the outside edges and runny/gooey in the middle. I can see how cooking it longer or decreasing the water may be a good idea for some people as mine was more pudding than cake - but still very tasty! It would've been amazing if I'd had any ice cream to go with it!
