I am all about a good Crockpot Dessert Recipe! This Slow Cooker Peanut Butter Cup Cake is so easy to make! Crockpot Dessert Recipes really do make life sweeter!
This week I decided to try a crockpot dessert recipe from Stephanie’s site. I like the idea of having a yummy dessert ready for me. We had a day full of soccer, running from one game to the next, so it was nice to know I had a warm Peanut Butter Cup Cake cooking away, ready for us upon our return. Soup would have been good too, but I was hankering for dessert. If a dessert has peanut butter, I’m happy. If it has chocolate AND peanut butter, I’m super happy. I would venture to say that most people adore the two mixed together and honestly…….I’m not quite sure I could trust anyone who didn’t. It’s kinda like my “never date a man who wears more jewelry than me” rule when I was dating.

After scooping this up into my dish, I was thinking it would go really well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It would have been the perfect warm cake alamode. Sadly we didn’t have any and I had to force myself to eat it without.
It’s no secret how much I love Stephanie’s recipes. I adore her recipes almost as much as I adore her. She told me I could share them with you all anytime I wanted! You can grab her cookbooks here. Stephanie’s Slow Cooker Recipe books
How to Make Crockpot Peanut Butter Cup Cake
- 1 cup all - purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar (divided. this is important, don't just start dumping, read on!)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (unless you're a rebel, use chunky)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa poweder
- 1 cup boiling water
- Use a 4-quart slow cooker coated well with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt.
- In the microwave, melt peanut butter for about 30 seconds, and then add to the mix along with milk, oil, and vanilla. Stir really well to combine.
- Spread this mixture into the bottom of your slow cooker.
- In a separate bowl, mix together cocoa powder, the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1 cup boiling water (be careful!) Pour this evenly over the peanut butter batter in your cooker.
- Cover and cook on high for 2-4 hours, or until the top has set and an inserted toothpick (into the cake--underneath the cake is molten chocolate) comes out clean. Let the cake sit uncovered in an unplugged crockpot for about 20 minutes, then serve warm in dessert bowls.
