I’d never before made a slow cooker chocolate pudding cake and had my doubts about how this would turn out. But a cooking tip beside the recipe said that the batter would rise to the top and turn into cake. Underneath there would be a rich chocolate pudding.

It worked! While not exactly “pudding,” beneath the chocolate cake was a warm, satiny chocolate pudding-like sauce!

This skinny slow cooker chocolate pudding cake is definitely going on my “make again” list.

      Hi Mary,

      I’m really not sure. I made the recipe just as I’ve written it here. I did use a 4-Quart oval slow cooker, which would have more surface area than a round 4-Quart. I’m thinking that the more surface area, the more the batter will bake and become cake-like. The smaller the slow cooker, the less surface area and the more pudding you would get. But this is just a guess. There are just so many variables in cooking!

      Mine was mostly pudding as well. I believe I just needed a bigger pan since I doubled the recipe. I also had to cook it longer.

    I made this for my Mom for her birthday and it was a HUGE hit! She’s always looking for ways to indulge her sweet tooth without feeling guilty. Given the fact that I’m an excellent cook, but a horrible baker, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy and good this was! Definitely one to keep on file! Thanks for the great recipe!
