  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup half & half
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup toasted chopped pecans or walnuts divided

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the White Lily self-rising flour, granulated sugar, and cocoa powder.
  • Mix-in the half & half, oil and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
  • Stir in ½ cup nuts and ½ cup chocolate chips. The batter will be thick.
  • Spray the inside of a 6-quart oval slow cooker liberally with cooking spray. Spoon the batter evenly into the slow cooker.
  • Dissolve the espresso in the hot water. Whisk together the hot water, cocoa powder and brown sugar until dissolved. Gently pour over the batter. Don’t stir.
