Let your slow cooker make dessert! This Pumpkin Spice Lava Cake is easy and perfectly delicious for fall! #SlowCookerMeals
If you think slow cookers are just for pot roast or soup ... think again! You can easily make this Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Lava Cake! Maybe you have heard of Chocolate Lave Cake - I decided to give it a seasonal spin with plenty of pumpkin and spice! The best part - it's as easy as mixing a few a few ingredients to get this amazing Slow Cooker Pumpkin Spice Lava Cake as the result!
You can use any spice cake mix you like, this brand just happens to be the only one I could find in my store that day. I found the Nestle Pumpkin Spice morsels at Walmart - and they are seasonal, so don't wait too long to grab a bag or two! I found the Pumpkin Spice Jello pudding mix at Walmart also - and it's seasonal too! Both products were on the big baking display in the main aisle (action alley), not the regular baking aisle.
For this recipe, I used the Hamilton Beach Programmable Stay or Go Slow Cooker, 6-Quart. Hamilton Beach knows how important it is for families to share meals together and a slow cooker makes preparing it stress-free and hands-off. The more active our families get, the more indispensable our slow cooker becomes.
Whether you’re hosting a party or simply making dinner on a hectic weeknight, a slow cooker gives you amazing ways to cook with convenience and simplicity. The Hamilton Beach Programmable Stay or Go Slow Cooker, 6-Quart is perfect for the cook who is busy all day but wants a home-cooked meal at night! As you can see from this post, it works great for dessert too! Having a slow cooker is the answer when you want dinner or dessert without a lot of fuss! And with this slow cooker, technology takes a big leap forward from the outdated slow cookers found in yesterday’s kitchens.

Just an FYI, after the cooking time, this cake may appear raw in the middle - but I assure you, it is the "lava" part of this cake. Just scoop some into a bowl and top it off with a scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream - that's when it goes from good to amazing! Try to control your enthusiasm as you relish each bite! I couldn't help but think how great this would be for Thanksgiving - and all season long!
