Mocha Pudding Cake

I usually test out new recipes throughout the year for Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner. I came across the delicious dessert recipe, but forgot to try it during the year. Now we are 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving.... so I'm about to place the ingredients in the crock-pot for the big test! It looks awesome and easy... I will let you know how it turns out!

1 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Stir together all ingredients except ice cream in a large bowl. Pour into a lightly greased 3-quart slow cooker.
Cover and cook on LOW 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until set around the edges but still soft in the center. Let stand, covered, 30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
