Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake Hip2Save

Did you know you can make a delicious cake with very little effort right in your slow cooker? Try this amazing gooey chocolate lava cake recipe for your next gathering without ever turning on the oven!

Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake

(Adapted from Betty Crocker)

Ingredients for the cake:

box of chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1 and 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil (or coconut oil like I prefer)

Ingredients for the topping:

1 four serving size box of chocolate instant pudding
2 cups milk
12 oz. bag of chocolate chips

How to make chocolate lava cake in the slow cooker Hip2Save


Beat together cake mix, oil, eggs, and milk with an electric mixer or stand mixer for a few minutes until batter is smooth. Spray slow cooker with nonstick spray so the cake won’t stick. Pour mixture into the slow cooker and smooth over the bottom. Beat together the 2 cups milk and pudding and pour over the top. Do not stir. Then sprinkle chocolate chips over top without stirring. Cover and cook on high for 2 and 1/2 hours. You’ll know when it is done when the outsides and top set up like a sponge- the middle will be gooey. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired. Serves 12. Enjoy! 🙂

Notes: Your cook time will vary based on the size and shape of your slow cooker. For instance, original recipe said 2.5 hours on low, but many reviews say that was very incorrect. I cooked mine on high for 2.5 hours with a wider shaped oval slow cooker with a larger cooking surface. If you have a taller slow cooker, it may take longer. When cooking on high, be sure to watch the cake so it doesn’t burn.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
