Reviews for Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake
"Love taking this to church potlucks! The best dessert for a crowd. So easy, but it seems like you slaved all day to make it!"
"i made this yesterday. I thought it was terrible. Nothing like I thought it was going to taste like. so disappointing."
"I made this for my family on Valentine's Day and they were thrilled. We served it with vanilla ice cream. I will definitely make it again! I used the crockpot liner and am glad I did. No mess to clean up. I couldn't find devil's food cake s used German chocolate. Delicious. Only served the 4 of us. We had huge helpings. If I had company, I would try to double it."
"This was so easy and so delicious! I will make it again! It took three hours on high to cook."
"This turned out perfect! Took like 3 minutes to put together, than 3 hours in the crock pot. A really great flavor, I will definitely make this again when I have people over, it does make a lot. I don't like cakes with frosting or that are too sweet, so this was just my cup of tea. Now I'm wondering if you can use other flavors of cake mix and pudding..........."
"I made this and it literally tasted like nothing(plain oatmeal like)... It made my house smell good atleast"
"I needed to try this but didn't have a chocolate cake, or chocolate pudding, so I used yellow cake mix with cocoa, vanilla pudding with cocoa, dark chocolate chips. ...it was GREAT !!! , with ice cream , just over 2 1/2 hrs on high."
"This cake was very rich and very good. I would call it a pudding cake rather than lava cake but that is not a big deal. We used to make pudding cake when I was growing up and this reminded me of that."
"This cake was just so-so in my opinion. It is easy to put together, but don't forget it as you can most crock pot meals. Mine like other reviewers was done in 2-2.5 hours tops. The flavor is just so-so and it seemed to lack the "molten" texture I was looking for in lava cake. My daughter who is a choc-o-holic was not impressed either. Good to try but I wouldn't take this to an event or make again."
"I had it at church it was the bomb"
