Cake Layer

  • 1 box Chocolate cake mix Or Devil's Food cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cup Milk Whole or 2%
  • 1/2 cup Oil
  • 3 Eggs Large

Pudding Layer

  • 1 box Instant chocolate pudding mix 3.9 oz. box
  • 2 cups Milk Whole or 2%



  • In a large mixing bowl, add cake mix, milk, oil, eggs and mix until smooth. 
  • Pour mixture into a greased/ oiled slow cooker (large oval slow cooker- I used a 6 quart one).
  • In another mixing bowl, mix together pudding mix and milk and gently pour the pudding on top of the cake mixture. DO NOT MIX TOGETHER! 
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips on tip and once again, do not stir or mix.
  • Cover and cook on high for 2.5 hours - 3 hours. I love the texture at 2.5 hours but you can cook for longer if you want it to be a bit more firmer. Cake is ready when a toothpick inserted ONLY HALFWAY in the center comes out clean.
  • Drizzle caramel sauce and sprinkle more chocolate chips on top, if you like.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Enjoy! 


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best and is the most ooey gooey, when served immediately. However, leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheated in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
