If you’re a lava cake kind of person and your idea of the best dessert is a piece of super moist gooey cake, then making cake in your crockpot is how you do it. This Crockpot Vanilla Butterscotch Pudding Cake is rich in taste and would be divine with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream.
You can find so many crockpot recipes under my Slow Cooker Sunday section.
Crockpot Vanilla Butterscotch Pudding Cake
If you’re looking for a cake that be decorated, this is NOT your cake. This cake is best just scooped right out of the slow cooker, right into a dessert bowl. It takes longer than baking a regular cake, but not as long as a crockpot dinner.
The sauce that you pour on top while putting together your recipe seems wrong….. you question how it’s really going to work and then the magic happens. It creates the pudding lava. The delicious scrumptious saucy lava!
