Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pecan Pudding Cake – an easy crock-pot dessert perfect for freeing up your oven. Like a hot fudge sundae cake but full of warm and cozy spices with a delicious sauce that forms beneath the cake. Plus a step-by-step video.
With fall just around the corner, slow cooker recipes are back in full force around here. I actually love using my slow cooker all year long but once the school season arrives, it’s a total must for helping us get through the busy weeknights.
Besides no bake, slow cooker desserts are one of my favorite things to make. This gooey Pumpkin Pecan Pudding Cake was actually a request from my stepdad who usually helps me take most of the desserts I make off my hands.
He grew up on a gooey chocolate pudding cake from his mom and grandma, who were both amazing bakers. Since he is a huge pumpkin lover, I thought I would shake things up a bit with a cozy fall version instead.
It’s super easy to whip up and the entire cake cooks up in the crock-pot in just under two hours. The results are soft and gooey and full of pumpkin and brown sugary goodness in every bite.
The best part about this cake is the hidden layer of warm brown sugar pudding underneath, almost like molten lava. So gooey and irresistible!
Serve warm with a spoonful of sauce and and top with a scoop of some creamy vanilla ice cream to make this the perfect fall treat.
I’ve also included directions on how to bake this in the oven if you prefer. You can also sprinkle some chopped nuts into the batter for an extra crunch.
