A few shortcut ingredients bake up into a decadent slow cooker cake that takes only 10 minutes to prep.
If you’re like me and really aren’t into the whole baking thing or just need a super-easy dessert, this recipe is for you. Boxed cake mix is transformed into one of the easiest desserts ever.
I used a yellow cake mix and added it to my slow cooker along with butterscotch pudding and caramel candies. Once baked, this turns into a deliciously warm, lava cake-like dessert that’s topped with caramel ice cream before serving. Yum!
