Crockpot Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

I was skeptical of this recipe the first time I tried it, but it turned out DELICIOUS!  I typically double it and use my 7 quart crockpot with no change to cooking time and it works great.

From Betty Crocker

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. baking cocoa
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable (or coconut) oil, or melted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 c. chopped nuts


  • 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. baking cocoa
  • 1 1/2 c. hot water

Grease inside of 2 1/2 qt. - 3 qt. crock with cooking spray, coconut oil, or butter.  Mix cake ingredients and spread in bottom of crock.  Stir together the sauce ingredients, mixing sugar and cocoa first then whisking in the hot water.  Gently pour over the cake batter.

Cover and cook on high for 2 hours - 2 1/2 hours, until toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean (not counting the sauce).

Turn off crock pot and remove the lid.  Let cool for 45 minutes to 1 hour.  Spoon warm cake into serving dishes, and top with warm sauce.  For an extra treat, add a scoop of ice cream, maybe some whipped cream, and a maraschino cherry!

Note from Betty Crocker Kitchens:  This recipe was tested in crock pots with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base.

Makes 6 servings
