Cake Recipes From The Crock Pot

Crock Pot Cakes

Have you ever tried a crock pot cake? You should they're great. The first time I tried a crock pot cake was four years ago.

I was looking for an easy to make dessert to make with my students. I work with self contained students and teach reading, writing, and math, along with social skills and life skills. Cooking being one of the life skills that I teach, had me paging through cookbooks for a super easy, but delicious, dessert recipe. Usually we are making a healthy dish but I wanted to reward the class with a special treat.

It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be to find a dessert we could make with our limited resources. As luck would have it, I had told one of my colleges during lunch about my seemingly futile search. She told me I should try making a crock pot cake. At first I was a little reluctant. After all, who had heard of making a cake in a crock pot?

She gave me this recipe she had gotten from her sister for a chocolate cake. Promising me that it would be the best chocolate cake I ever ate she left me there reading the recipe.

I decided, what the heck, it sounded like it might be kind of good. I love chocolate, and everybody knows how children feel about it.

Needless to say, the kids were thrilled to learn we would be making a chocolate cake. It was unbelievably easy to make. You put all of the ingredients into the crock pot, set it on high, and 4 hours later you have a delicious, moist cake.

We used a big spoon to dip out the cake onto a plate, while still hot, and topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a dollop of whipped cream. It was the richest, moistest cake I had ever tried.

That same evening I began to look online for more crock pot cake recipes to try. I found some really good ones that I could tweak a little to suit my taste needs.

You really owe it to yourself to try making your own crock pot cake. You'll be glad you did.

robie2, these are delicious recipes. In the Apple cake recipe you can substitute any pie filling and it is equally delicious. The best part is, they are so easy to make. Thanks for stopping by.

Such great recipes. I'd much rather make a cake in a crock pot than an oven - they always stay nice and moist.

I've even done a zucchini bread which really was more like a cake. Excellent. Thanks a lot!

BK, I've never done zucchini bread in a crock pot, I bet it's good. I'm with you, I love making cakes in a crockpot. The first one I ever made was the chocolate - it's so rich and moist. It's nice to hear from you.

RTalloni, I have made the chocolate a couple of times a year with my class for the last 4 years. It is easy and I've never found a person who didn't like it. As for the other recipes I have tried them, they are really delicious and also easy. For me, the chocolate is my favorite. You might find one of the other will be yours.

I have never made a crockpot cake. How do you get the cake out once done?

Bethany, a crockpot cake needs to be served in a bowl. You scoop it out with a large spoon. If you want to store it in a plastic container, you simply sccop the cake out and place it in the container and store it in the fridge. You can reheat it if you wish. Many people eat it with a topping of ice cream, whipped cream or both. It's the same consistancy as a regular cake.

moonlake, they are delicious and so easy. They are best eaten warm. You scoop them out with a big spoon put a big dollup of whipped cream or ice cream on top.
