This moist, rich chocolate cake mimics molten lava cake but is made in a slow cooker instead of an oven.
This molten chocolate cake was my first ever slow cooker cake. Honestly, cake in a slow cooker has always seemed like a waste of time. But when I saw this Taste of Home recipe, I decided to try it.
The cake turned out to be very moist and had a pudding-like interior; however, I think it would have been even better served at a more molten stage of cooking. It is all preference. Once the cake is to your liking, spoon it into bowls and enjoy!
Here’s my take on this cake. Taste: wonderful, rich, moist chocolate dessert that definitely satisfies a chocolate craving. Effort: easy to make, and no hovering by a kitchen timer. Cleanup: took a good deal of effort even though I sprayed the slow cooker liner very well. Presentation: not impressive or company worthy. Dipping cake out of a slow cooker isn’t elegant. For guests, I’d definitely serve this in ramekins with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.
My family’s take: they enjoyed the cake but that they still preferred this glazed triple chocolate bundt cake for their chocolate cravings. It is just as easy to make as this slow cooker cake but is hands down yummier, prettier, and more company worthy.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on slow cooker cake or dessert, and if you have any great recipes, please pass them along! And as always, thanks so much for reading Family Savvy!
