One of my FAVORITE appliances in my kitchen is my crockpot. I love being able to add ingredients and let it cook itself. Just the other day I wanted to make something different. Now normally I cook dinners in my crockpot, but this time I made something sweet.
I got out my 120 Slow Cooker Recipe Favorites: Mary Engelbreit’s Fan Fare Cookbook and looked under desserts. I found the Lemon Cake Dessert recipe and knew I had to give it a try. If you like bread pudding and you like lemon, you might just LOVE this recipe.
Lemon Cake Dessert Crockpot Recipe
- 1 12-ounce bag white chocolate chips
- 1 3.4-ounce package instant lemon pudding mix
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 18.25-ounce box lemon cake mix, batter prepared according to package instructions
- Butter flavored cooking spray
- Vanilla ice cream for serving
Stir the white chocolate chips, pudding mix, and sour cream into the prepared cake batter.
Spray a 3-quart or larger slow cooker with butter-flavored cooking spray, and then pour the batter into it. Cover and cook on high for about 2 hours, and then stir well.
Cover and cook on high for another 1 1/2 hours or until the dessert is mostly set in the middle and firm around the edges. The top and middle will still be a little goey.
Turn off slow cooker and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. The dessert will have a consistency of a bread pudding.
Spoon into bowls and serve with vanilla ice cream
I actually don’t like bread pudding, but found this to be delicious.
The vanilla ice cream went really well with it too! I am a cake and ice cream kind of gal and this was good.
OH MY.. This looks so good. I printed it out so I can get the ingredients and make it next week. I am so drooling!!
That looks and sounds awesome. We don’t use our crock pot very much. I would have never thought to use it to make a dessert but now after seeing this receipe we may be using it for that because I LOVE dessert. That is really cool. Thanks for sharing.
wow, this sounds so tasty!

Desserts in the slow cooker aren’t something I usually make but that sounds really good especially for my little slow cooker.

Looks delicious. I’ve been thumbing through one of those Not Your Mother’s Crockpot cookbooks. Now if I could just manage to pull my slow cooker out of the cabinet…

I have never attempted to make a dessert in a cockpot but your recipe has inspired me too!
I am not a big lemon dessert fan but I bet you could change out the jello flavor to something else. It looks delish and my hubby would be the one to love this
