A dessert that you'll love!Warm, ooey, gooey, nutty, chocolate pudding cake … in the crockpot. Yes, you read that right: Triple Chocolate Nutty Pudding Cake that came out of my slow cooker and not the oven. And let me tell you, it was fabulously moist and decadent – everything a good cake should be. 😉

Now, most of us are accustomed to using our slow cookers for dinner and stews or soups. But it’s not the go-to when planning dessert, right? It’s not for me either, which is why I figured it was time to give it a try.

I love hot brownie sundaes – with vanilla bean ice cream and drizzly caramel – and that’s exactly how this tasted. The original recipe called for crushed peanuts but pecans reminded me more of brownies and it’s what I had on hand. I personally love Wilbur Chocolate’s baking products so I was able to use the cocoa powder and baking chips I bought while visiting my hometown area last fall. Many of Wilbur’s products can be ordered through their online store, but be mindful of the warmer temperatures when ordering chocolate.

While this was baking – is it still considered baking if it’s prepared in the crockpot? – my house smelled like the perfect scent for a new potpourri: Chocolate Explosion Delight. The windows were open when I was making this and I’m surprised there wasn’t a line forming outside waiting for a taste.

  • 1-1/2 c. boiling water
  • Vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce (optional but highly recommended)

Instructions

  1. Coat 3.5- to 4-quart slow cooker with non-stick spray, or use a crock pot liner for easier removal. Set aside.

  3. Spread batter evenly over the bottom of the prepared slow cooker.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the 3/4 c. sugar and the remaining 2 tbsp. cocoa powder. Slowly stir in the boiling water. Pour evenly over the batter in the slow cooker.
  5. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2.5 hours, or until a toothpick inserted 1" into the center comes out clean. Let stand for 30 to 40 minutes before serving.
  6. Spoon warm cake into dessert dishes and top with your favorite ice cream or toppings.
