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.
