This decadent Slow Cooker German Chocolate Spoon Cake is a delicious spin on German chocolate cake, this is served this warm with ice cream!
Hi all! I think you will love this Slow Cooker German Chocolate Spoon cake. This cake is warm, gooey, and full of standard German chocolate cake flavors, but I serve this warm with ice-cream. If you are like me and don’t turn your oven on in the summer, you will enjoy this recipe.
I start with a cake mix, but I dress it up a bit with butter instead of oil. I also add vanilla extract, and a dash of salt.
I pour the batter into a well greased slow cooker.
Then I top the batter with coconut, chocolate chunks, and pecans.
Cook on High for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Below is what it looks like after it is done cooking.
This cake isn’t the type that is cooled and sliced. You dig into it with a spoon, warm.
Top with ice cream. Best dessert I’ve had in a long time!
