You all, I totally nailed this recipe! You all know my Instant Pot Better Than Sex Lava Cake Recipe, that recipe is SO popular. I wanted to create a different recipe using my slow cooker. Let me just say I gave myself a round of applause.
The Best Slow Cooker Lava Cake
This slow cooker lava cake is hands down the best! Yep, I said it! Now, beware this is one incredibly sweet dessert, that is where the Death by Chocolate comes in! I used a cake mix and pudding mix to give you that tender cake with an ooey-gooey lava center. This is totally a dessert you want to add to your cheat day.
How to Store Slow Cooker Lava Cake
I store any leftovers in the fridge. I just spoon it out and place it in a bowl with a lid. Then when I want to serve more up spoon it out and then reheat.
How To Reheat Slow Cooker Lava Cake
I find that spooning out what you want in a bowl and then just heat it up in the microwave. Then just serve it up and enjoy. Or if you want to eat it cold, I found that the chilled lava cake tasted good that way as well!
Toppers For Slow Cooker Lava Cake
If you are wanting to add more to the cake here are some variations of toppers to add to your cake. While it is sweet enough on its own, you can also dress up the presentation with these ideas below.
- Dust with powdered sugar
- A dollop of Ice Cream
- Whipped Topping
- Fresh fruit like mixed berries, strawberries, or even blueberries
- Sprinkle on some nuts for crunch
However, you choose to serve it this lava cake will truly win over a crowd. Make it for a potluck, summer cookout or a treat to break up your work week.
I have seen some recipes use icing in replace of pudding, I found the pudding offers a really creamy texture but also a flavor I preferred over chocolate icing. But, I am not always the biggest frosting fan either. Let me know which recipe you prefer.
