When you think about slow cooker recipes, savory dishes probably come to mind. The slow cooker isn't just for savory recipes. You can make a delicious easy dessert right in the crockpot!
If you've never made a dessert in the slow cooker before, you wont believe how easy it is to make a cake in the slow cooker.
The slow cooker just doesn't have to be for savory dishes. Making desserts in the slow cooker is so simple and easy.
How do you make Chocolate Cake in a slow cooker?
First, you will spread your chocolate cake batter into the bottom of a slow cooker.
Then, add the sugary chocolate topping. Finally, pour hot water over all of it and don't stir.
I know it's very tempting to stir, but you don't want to stir after pouring the hot water no top of the cake batter.
Cook on high for about 3 hours. The aroma smells amazing as the chocolate lava cake cooks. If your slow cooker runs hot, it might not take as long to cook.
how to serve the chocolate lava cake
Serve the warm vegan chocolate lava cake with a scoop of ice cream.
Adding a dollop of coconut whip cream would also be so delicious!
If your slow cooker has a warm setting, you can keep the cake warm after it's done cooking. Once the cake is done, leave the slow cooker on the warm setting until ready to serve. I probably wouldn't leave the warm setting on for more than 2 hours.
With each bite of this chocolate cake, you'll get a little bit of the warm, gooey chocolate cake and cold ice cream.
