slow cooker recipes

I’ve used my slow cooker for many things: Dips, dinners, and fondues, but I had yet to bake a cake in one! This recipe has converted me. This. Was. Awesome!

Fudgy, moist, and warm, serve it with Vanilla ice cream. It doesn’t get any better than this slow cooker chocolate lava cake recipe from Life as a Lofthouse blog.

This was really good. Hubs can't stay out of it!


  • Slow Cooker Chocolate Molten Lava Cake
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 3 cups Boiling Water


  1. Mix together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in large bowl.
  2. Stir in milk, melted butter, and vanilla.
  3. Spread batter over bottom of a large crockpot (this will rise so don't use the mini crocks). Batter will be stiff.
  4. Combine brown sugar and cocoa powder.
  5. Sprinkle over cake batter.
  6. Pour boiling water over the top of it all and resist all temptation to stir! DO NOT STIR.
  7. Cover and cook on High for 2 - 2 1/2 hours.
  8. Remove lid, turn off, and let rest 30 minutes before serving so it isn't so hot!
  9. Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream.

I've made this several time and everyone lives it! Thanks for the fab recipe. I love making it when I have a dinner party because I can just leave it until it's time. It takes minutes to put together and has never failed :)

O.K. i made this tonight. It was pretty good, very easy, but it definitely needs to be served with vanilla ice-cream. I decided to semi-pack the brown sugar. I think I will "pack" it next time.
