Peanut Butter Cup Cake Crock Pot Recipe

So this cake happened today.
Like realllly happened.

I started it.
I went to the pool and watched my kids do 40 million cannonballs.
I came home.
And waiting for me was a cake.
In a crock pot.

Yezzzzz.

This is, in fact, real life.
And there are peanut butter cups involved.

Because I love you.
And after you eat this cake you will love me too.

Crock Pot Peanut Butter Cup Cake.
Did you hear me? IN A CROCK POT!

I’m caking like it’s 1983.

How to Make This Crock Pot Cake Mix Dessert:

Just mix up your ingredients.
And since we’re in the 80’s, let’s start with a cake mix.
A bowl of chocolate batter with mini peanut butter cups on topThen put it in your crock.
What a crock it is.
Side view of a stainless steel slow cookerAnd wait a bunch of hours.
I suggest you get on with your life during this time.
Watching the crock pot work is a losing battle, folks.

After the longest 6 1/2 hours of our life you should eat.
With ice cream.

Good gosh almighty.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (18.25 oz) pkg chocolate cake mix
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 (3 or 4 oz) pkg of instant chocolate pudding mix any size will be fine
  • 1 cup mini peanut butter cups, or 1 cup chopped peanut butter cups
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil

  1. Spray crock pot with non stick spray. I used my 8 qt crock pot.
  2. Mix all ingredients together and pour in crock.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6 1/2-7 hours until center is set.

Notes:

Also, the cake is very loose, more like a pudding-cake.

Sad to say I made this last night and was really disappointed. It tasted nothing like peanut butter cups and was really oily. I followed the directions exactly , but it just didn’t taste very good. I will not be making it again 🙁

Hi I just made this cake and left, ran some errands, went to a movie and came back so excited to eat it! BUT it was burnt all on the outside and we tried the inside but it tastes terrible, nothing like peanut butter cups. Very disappointed :/ I cooked it for 6.5 hours, and followed the ingredient list exactly… Not sure what went wrong but won’t be making this one again.

I made this today. I made it exactly like the recipe said. It cooked on low for 5 1/2 hours and it was burnt on the outside. The consistency was weird and it tasted ok. I was very disappointed and I won’t be making it again.

This looks delicious! We have ice cream socials at church and this will be a big hit! 🙂

Did you ever stir it? I had my crock pot on low and started smelling a burning smell just after two hours… The inside isn’t looking done. I’m not sure if I was suppose to stir here and there or my crock might just be a hotter one.

What temp do I put the crock put in? High or low?

I noticed that in the photo the crockpot temperature is set to low. Have you experimented with a higher temperature/shorter cooking time? I want to make it tonight but don’t have 6.5 hours to wait 🙁

This looks amazing! Would this work with a larger cockpot?

Do you mix the cake mix like making a normal cake? And do you mix the pudding mix with the water like normal or just mix the powder mix with the other ingredients?

July 4, 2012 10:46 am

Want to make this but do i make the cake mix, like a cake mix with the eggs, oil and such and make the pudding with the liquids too? OR do i just add all the ingredients as they are and add them all in and they eventually work it out? HELP!!!

July 4, 2012 10:47 am

oh my, i think i figured it out. I paniced for a bit, lol. Sorry!

July 1, 2012 9:15 am

I found this on pinterest and I’m making it today because I’m having some gal friends over for dessert – can’t wait! I know the house is going to smell so good!

June 25, 2012 11:43 am

Loving this – especially how easy it is!!

Looking forward to having this tomorrow. Sounds like there are lots who haven’t cooked dessert in crock pot…. Just FYI, if you place a towel UNDER the lid, the condensation collects on the towel and doesn’t drip back onto your cake.
