Chocolate Lava Cake

This is Becky's version of crock pot chocolate lava cake. She recommends serving it with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream. I can NOT wait to try this. Thanks for sharing Becky.

-1 - 18.25 ounce package devils food cake mix
-3 eggs
-1/3 cup vegetable oil
-1 2/3 cups water
-1 - 3.4 ounce package Jello Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding Mix
-2 cups cold milk
-1 bag (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Prepare cake mix into batter using eggs, oil, and water. Pour into greased (see note below) 4 - 6 quart crock-pot.

Prepare Jell-O Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix using milk. Pour this over cake mix in crock-pot. Sprinkle chocolate chips all over the top of the batter.

Cook in crock-pot on high setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until cake is moist but not jiggly, and little volcanoes of spitting chocolate appear on top. Serve with ice cream, whipped topping, or on its own for a really special dessert.

*Note*For best results use a Reynold's Slow Cooker Liner instead of greasing so sides don't burn to your crock-pot. Also important to use Jello brand chocolate pudding mix. Others may cause the color to be grey, green or red--just fair warning :)

Thanks again Becky for sharing...... I know there will be a lot of happy chocolate and crock pot lovers.


  1. can't wait to try it! I hope to this weekend! Seems yummy and simple!

  3. That sounds great! I'm trying to use my crockpot more, so I'm glad I stumbled across you at Mommy's Kitchen.

  4. Chocolate Lava Cake in a crock pot? Who knew?! I can't wait to impress the gals at the next potluck with this one! :)

  5. O WOW! This sounds really delicious! A must try!

  6. I made this this week and I"m not sure if I did something wrong, but the texture was very off for me. It was not cake-like, but it was more fudge-y. Not sure how to describe it. I may have to try again and see if it was me, or if it's just not my things. Loved the smell of it though!

  7. Hey Aimee,

    That's how it's suppose to be. Well, let me back up here for a minute.

    When I make it is firmer around the edges of the crockery. Then it is very gooey and fudgy in the middle.

    It always tastes SO good, but I can completely understand how there would be a texture issue (I'm like that with calamari).

    If it didn't get "done" enough for you, you may want to let it cook or set a little longer next time.

    If you try it again, let us know what you do different and how it turns out for ya.

    Keep on cROCKin'!
