  • 2 Cups Self Raising Flour
  • 1 3/4 Cups Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Cocoa Powder

  • 4 Cups Icing Mixture ( sugar )
  • Splash Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence



  • Mix dry ingredients together
  • Add eggs, milk, oil and Vanilla essence.
  • Add 1 Cup of boiling water
  • Combine for a minute or two to add some air into the cake mix.
  • Pour into your greased cake tin ( you can use a silicone cake mould ) and place into your slow cooker elevated on some egg rings or similar.
  • Cover egg rings with water.
  • Place Tea Towel under the lid and fold over top to catch any condensation.
  • Cook on HIGH for 2 hours ( may need more or less as all slow cookers are different )


  • Cream butter and cocoa together until creamy.
  • Add Vanilla Essence
  • Add 1 Cup of icing mixture at a time to butter mixture ( 4 cups all up may need a little more if not firm enough )
  • Add splash of milk to keep mixture smooth
  • Mixture should be smooth but firm enough to form peaks
  • (Measurements are approximate, you might need to add slightly more milk or more icing sugar mixture to get the consistency you want - no set rules
