Slow Cooker Chocolate Cobbler

I found and pinned this recipe a while back and have had it on my "to make" list for quite some time.  Finally, today I got around to making it!

I decided to go all out on dinner tonight.  We had steak, twice baked potatoes, fresh corn on the cob and chocolate cobbler for dessert.  It was A-MA-ZING!! 

This recipe uses very simple ingredients that you probably already have in the house.  It's very simple to make, you just throw it all into the slow cooker and a few hours later you have a chocolate cake with a delicious fudgy sauce.  It's literally a crock pot full of heaven!

I recommend having this cake with a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream but it would still be delicious by itself.  The nice thing about this cake is that it has wonderful chocolate flavor but it's not overly sweet or rich.  It really is my idea of the perfect dessert.

Chocolate Cobbler in the Slow Cooker
via Eat At Home


1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 Tbs. cocoa
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 Tbs. cocoa
1 1/2 cups hot water 


Spray the inside of the slow cooker crock with cooking spray.  

In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, 3 Tbs. cocoa and 3/4 cup white sugar.  Stir milk, melted butter and vanilla into the flour mixture until smooth. Pour into the greased crock.  

In a small bowl, combine the rest of the white sugar, brown sugar and cocoa. Sprinkle over the top of the batter in the crock.  

Pour hot water over the top of ingredients in the slow cooker. Do not stir!  Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 3-4 hours. Remove the lid and let stand for several minutes before serving. 

At first, it will be a bit too liquidy, but should thicken up after several minutes.

  1. This looks fantastic! How big is your slow cooker? Mine is the huge cook-a-whole-chicken size. Do you think that would mess this up?
