  • Crockpot™ 7-Quart Cook & Carry™ Slow Cooker



  • 2 cups (250 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups (300 g) granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp (38 g) pure unsweetened cocoa power
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (240 ml) nondairy milk
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) pure vanilla extract


  • 1 1/2 cups (330 g) packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (38 g) vegan hot cocoa mix
  • 1/4 cup (25 g) cocoa powder

To pour over:

  • 3 cups (720 ml) hot water


  • 1 1/2 cups vegan mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour in the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  • Pour the mixture into your greased 7 QT Crockpot™ Cook & Carry Easy Clean Slow Cooker.
  • For the topping, mix together the brown sugar, hot chocolate mix and cocoa powder, then sprinkle evenly over the cake mixture. Do not stir!
  • Finally, pour the hot water all over the top – do not stir!
  • Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 2 1/2 hours. Remove the lid and top with marshmallows and chocolate chips, then cook 30 more minutes. If the cake isn’t done, you can continue to cook it on low in 30-minute intervals until it is. There will be a gooey layer of pudding on the bottom, but the center should be a fully cooked cake.
  • Scoop out cake while warm and serve with your favorite non-dairy ice cream!

    Can you make this with gluten-free flour? Any suggestions on the best to use?

      We haven’t tested a gluten-free version, but we would recommend using a gluten-free all-purpose flour. Happy baking!

      Hi there! You can make a pudding cake in the oven, however the ingredient ratios and cook times are different. We have a recipe in our cookbook (The Six Vegan Sisters Everyday Cookbook) for a hot fudge pudding cake made in the oven.

    This looks yummy! Unfortunately I don’t have access to the Vegan Hot Cocoa Mix. What could I substitute? I can order it online, but was hoping to make this for the grandkids this weekend. Thanks!

      We have a recipe for Slow Cooker Chocolate Pudding Cake that requires no hot cocoa mix! You could still add the marshmallows and chocolate chips on top if desired. Hope your grandkids love it!
