Slow Cooker Recipes: Chocolate Molten Lava Cake

While browsing through slow cooker recipes, I wasn’t sure just what to think when I found a recipe for Chocolate Molten Lava Cake.

I’ve used my slow cooker for many things: Dips, dinners, and fondues, but I had yet to bake a cake in one! This recipe has converted me. This. Was. Awesome!

Fudgy, moist, and warm, serve it with Vanilla ice cream. It doesn’t get any better than this slow cooker chocolate lava cake recipe from Life as a Lofthouse blog.

This was really good. My husband can't stay out of it!


  • 2 Cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 Cups All-purpose Flour
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 3 Cups Boiling Water


  1. Mix together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in large bowl.
  2. Stir in milk, melted butter, and vanilla.
  3. Spread batter over bottom of a large crockpot (this will rise so don't use the mini crocks). Batter will be stiff.
  4. Combine brown sugar and cocoa powder.
  5. Sprinkle over cake batter.
  6. Pour boiling water over the top of it all and resist all temptation to stir! DO NOT STIR.
  7. Cover and cook on High for 2 - 2 1/2 hours.
  8. Remove lid, turn off, and let rest 30 minutes before serving so it isn't so hot!
  9. Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream.
