Slow-Cooker Red Velvet Cake

Free up the oven and stove with this slow cooker cake recipe (which can be decorated however you see fit!)

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 3 hrs


1 (465 g) box red velvet cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)

*Ingredients on the back of the box (eggs, oil, etc.)

Cream cheese frosting (you can use canned)

1/2 lb white chocolate

1 tbsp. coconut oil


  1. Follow the directions on your box cake container (if your cake calls for water, sub in milk instead.)
  2. Pour half the batter into a 6-quart slow cooker. Melt chocolate and coconut oil together in the microwave until smooth. Pour over top of batter. Cover with remaining cake batter.
  3. Cover and cook on high heat for 3 1/2 – 4 hours. If not using the melted chocolate centre, reduce cook time to 3 hours. Cake is done when a toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Allow to cool in the slow cooker. Slice and serve!

Recipe Notes

You can ice the cake in the slow cooker and then slice the cake, or slice the cake first, remove from slow cooker, and frost like I did.
