Crock Pot Chocolate Cake

Crock Pot Chocolate Cake is the moistest chocolate cake you’ve ever eaten and it’s foolproof to make!Make the most moist chocolate cake ever with this crock pot chocolate cake recipe! It's the perfect slow cooker dessert.

Some of the best cookbooks I own are from Church’s or Civic Groups. I even have one that I received as a wedding gift with recipes from all of the families in the Senate and House of Representatives. One of my friends who is a fantastic cook and never measures anything (I hate her for that) once called me a cookbook whore. Well, I have to admit she is right. I have cookbooks stashed everywhere in my kitchen. A few years ago our church created their own cookbook and this is one of the recipes I submitted. I have no idea where I originally got the recipe from but it’s a favorite.

This crock pot chocolate cake is a favorite for parties and family gatherings. Make the most moist chocolate cake ever with this crock pot chocolate cake recipe! It's the perfect slow cooker dessert.

Crock pot Chocolate Cake is a fluffy moist cake.

This cake is amazingly moist and fluffy almost cloud-like. You can frost it or top it with ice cream and chocolate syrup. It’s perfect for people like me who don’t like a lot of icing on their cake. But if you love icing just flip it out onto a cooling rack and ice it. My favorite icing is homemade cream cheese frosting. It only takes 3 hours to cook so you can be doing other things while your dessert is being made. If you time it right it will be ready when dinner is finished and you can serve it warm right out of your slow cooker.

I will warn you to be careful with a ceramic slow cooker and to check it after two and a half hours. Ceramic slow cookers tend to cook from the bottom and you don’t want to burn your slow cooker chocolate cake. I swear by my Ninja Slow Cooker because it cooks from the sides and bottom and never burns my recipes. I never go back to another brand again. You can see just how perfect it cooks this cake. Make the most moist chocolate cake ever with this crock pot chocolate cake recipe! It's the perfect slow cooker dessert.

  1. I want to try the crockpot chocolate cake but i need it to feed 24 for a large party. Will it turn out just as good if I triple the recipe?? and do I have to cook it longer? thanks
    1. I have no idea as I've never tried it, but my gut feeling is that the bottom and sides will burn before the inside get's cooked. I would also think tripling may be too big for your crockpot once it's cooked.
