What You Need to Make This No Bowl Slow Cooker Chocolate Pudding Cake Recipe
This is a super-easy bowl free cake recipe, so all you need is a small slow cooker – I ordered my Crockpot from Amazon*.
And a spatula (have you seen my favorite one yet?). Measuring cups and spoons would help, too.
But other than that – no mixer, no fancy nothings.
This is the ultimate staple dessert!
Apart from ice cream I probably have all the ingredients on hand 99% of the time.
It’s something I can always whip up when we’re hungry for a warm, chocolatey dessert.
And let’s be serious – that’s the case pretty much every day for me.
Do make sure to use unsweetened cocoa powder, and not sweetened cacao or a hot chocolate drink mix.

That’s all I have to say for this recipe – don’t lift the slow cooker lid to take a peek before the time is up.
Apart from that I really don’t think anything could go wrong with this recipe 🙂
