Crockpot Chocolate Devils Food Cake

Add Comment

So I have this new toy from Christmas that was given to me by my parents that I can’t seem to stop playing with.

A Crockpot!

I have been making all kinds of food in it and today I decided to experiment with making a cake.

Who would have ever thought that you could make a cake in a Crockpot, but low and behold it works!

There are many recipes online and they all vary so I just tried what I thought would work.

I took the easy way out and bought a box of Betty Crockers Devils Food Cake mix so I didn’t have to start from scratch.

This made it way easier to get er’ done.

For the cake mix you need:

  • 1 Cup of water
  • 1/2 Cup of oil
  • 3 Eggs
  • Box of cake mix

Simply mix all the above ingredients together in a mixing bowl and beat with a mixer on medium for about 2 – 3 minutes until smooth.

Be sure to spray the inside of your Crockpot with Pam non-stick spray so that the cake will pop right out when finished.

Add your cake mix to the Crockpot and set it on low.

I was following a recipe from somewhere else and they said to cook for 3 hours. It didn’t seem done at that point so I added another hour which made it better but I would suggest even adding another hour to make the cake much more firm.

After you cook your cake for the 5 hours on low you should turn it off and let it site for 1/2 hour before trying to remove it.

I took a dinner plate and place it over the Crockpot and flipped the Crockpot upside down so the cake would plop right out onto the plate. Sure enough it did perfectly.

I took another dinner plate and place it on top of the cake which is now upside down so I could flip it right side up.

Here is what the final cake looked like.

It tasted great, but like I said could have been cooked a little more. 4 hours on low wasn’t enough for me, next time it will be set for 5 hours.

Have you done any slow cooker cakes or desserts? Let me know in the comments below.

    • LOL! It is the best investment you can make… I love the fact I can start dinner around 10am and it is ready in time for dinner without much fuss. Also the best thing is it makes your house smell so good all day while it is cooking. :)

    • I believe you will be happy with the way it comes out. The cake a moist and delicious. Just make sure you cook it longer. Now that I have researched it more on the web I find most people say 6 hours on low. I was worried about the bottom burning but it was no where close to being burnt. I am definitely going to be making more desserts in the slow cooker…

    • Wow 5?! I am just getting used to one but I could see how 3 at a time would work well, this way you can have your entree and 2 sides or your entree and 1 side and a dessert!
