Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 2 hrs
Total Time 2 hrs 10 mins
Servings 1 cake


  • 1 cup Anita's Organic Einkorn Flour
  • 2/3 cup Anita's Organic Cane Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Anita's Organic Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2/3 cup Milk, regular or non-dairy
  • 1/3 cup Sunflower oil
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup Anita's Organic Chocolate Chips

Cooking liquid:

  • 1/4 cup Anita's Organic Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 cup Anita's Organic Cane Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Anita's Organic Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup Hot water


  • Lightly oil the inside of a 3 to 4-quart crock pot.
  • In a medium size bowl mix the einkorn flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. Make a well in the centre and add the oil, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined. Stir in 2/3’s of the chocolate chips (set the rest aside). Scrape the batter into the crock pot and level out. Sprinkle with the remaining chocolate chips.
  • In a jug or a bowl mix the cooking liquor ingredients together. Gently pour the liquid over the cake batter. Place the lid on the crock pot and cook on high for 2 hours. Test the cake is done by inserting a wooden skewer into the centre. If it comes out clean the cake is ready – if not allow to cook until it is.
  • Once cooked turn the crockpot on to the ‘keep warm’ setting. Serve the cake warm with ice cream and fresh berries. Best eaten day made & while still warm.


Crockpots vary from brand to brand so these timings may vary a little too.
We used our Einkorn Flour in this recipes but Fine Grind Spelt or Whole Wheat Pastry Flour would also work well.
