I recently went to two Pampered Chef parties and fell in love with what they call "The Magic Pot". Its actually called something like the Deep Covered Baker. For someone like me, who does not cook, who hates to cook, this baker was a dream come true. I sat there in awe as the hostess told us all you could do with this stoneware baker. You can cook a whole chicken in it IN THE MICROWAVE! You don't even know how many meals I can make with it IN THE MICROWAVE! That's my kinda cookware.
So during the second party that I went to, the hostess actually baked a cake in it...You guessed it....IN THE MICROWAVE! It was the most moistest (is that a a word?) cake I had ever had. Of course it being a Lava Devils Food cake didn't hurt the situation. I was also pleased at how easy it was going to be that it was something I could do with Ella almost mess free. So we gave it a go! We put all of the ingredients into our "Magic Pot"......
Just after mixing the ingredients, I took a scooper and scooped several balls of fudge frosting into the baker. This is how you make the lava. Once you stick it in the microwave to cook, all of the fudge falls to the bottom and you have an ooey gooey fantastic treat.
After licking the bowl clean and 10 easy minutes in the microwave, we enjoyed a puffy, moist, chocolaty chocolate, devils food cake. I feel more domesticated already! *Sniff*
Thank you my Pampered Chef hostess (thats you Alyssa!) for opening my eyes to this wonderful piece of equipment!! :0)
