Instead of dumping the pudding on top, what I did was split the cake batter in half

This isn't how you make the recipe from scratch this is a easy less tasty version

I have been making this recipe for years, it is especially nice on a holiday or special occasion. I love this when I am super busy making a meal for company. This hot dessert in a crockpot is easy, fast to put together, delicious & most importantly frees up my kitchen. People can even serve themselves. Don't forget the vanilla ice cream to go with. My only addition would be to watch this when it is done, don't let the bottom burn even when it's on warm, if left for an extended time, it may scorch.

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 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...........
