Slow Cooker Creme Egg Chocolate Cake

Slow Cooker Creme Egg Chocolate Cake

Creme Eggs nestling in pillowy smooth glossy buttermilk cake mixture. I could have eaten it all without even bothering to cook it, but I resisted. This time of year seems to be when chocolate bakes are the most popular on the blog so I decided to make a new one.

My slow cooker Creme Egg chocolate cake is here and you must make one right away!

With Creme Eggs inside and on top of the cake, if you are a chocolate lover you are going to love this.

Smooth butter icing which takes just a minute to make, covering a soft and rich buttermilk chocolate cake baked in the slow cooker, stuffed with Creme Eggs! Are you still there?

OK so you’ll have to go to the gym after eating a slice but it is Easter and time to share food with family and friends, so I am sure this won’t hang around for long.

Unlike a sponge cake which can sometimes dry out when baked in the slow cooker, due to the longer cooking time, this buttermilk cake stays moist and soft. I added coffee extract to enhance the chocolate flavour of the cocoa powder – you can’t taste it but it really brings out the chocolate flavour!

Once you cut into the cake you’ll find your Creme Eggs buried within the cake – so good! It’s an Easter egg hunt in a cake, you can’t get better than that.

Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 100 g butter softened
  • 125 g golden caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 120 g self-raising flour
  • 30 g cocoa powder
  • 80 ml buttermilk
  • 1 tsp coffee extract
  • Creme Eggs (normal and mini) I used 2 normal ones and 2 mini ones)

For the icing:

  • 25 g sunflower spread or butter
  • 50 g Icing sugar approx
  • 3-4 tsp cocoa powder
  • Splash of milk
  • 1 Creme Egg to top the cake

Instructions

  • Cream together the butter and sugar until soft and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one by one and mix well.
  • In a separate small bowl, mix together the flour and cocoa powder.
  • Add about a third of the flour and cocoa powder and mix, then add a third of the buttermilk.
  • Continue adding the flour and cocoa powder and buttermilk alternately until it is all used up.
  • Add the coffee extract and combine.
  • Prepare your slow cooker. I made this in a round 3.5 litre slow cooker, to produce a round cake. If you are using a different size or shape slow cooker you'll get different results and most likely a less deep cake.
  • Spray the slow cooker pot with cake release spray to prevent the cake sticking if it comes out of the cake case.
  • Place two large cake cases in the slow cooker pot. These fit well in a round 3.5 litre slow cooker. If you are using a large slow cooker you could put the cake cases in a metal or silicone cake tin.
  • Spoon the cake mixture into the case. Press the Creme Eggs into the cake mixture.
  • Place a tea towel under the lid (this prevents moisture from dripping onto the cakand cook on high for approx 1.5 hours or until a cake tester or skewer comes out clean. Keep an eye on it as the time taken really depends on your slow cooker, and do watch out for burning.
  • Once done, remove the slow cooker pot from the slow cooker using oven gloves. Wait a few minutes for the pot to cool down, then use the edges of the cake case to remove the cake from the pot. Place it on a cooling rack to cool fully.
  • In the meantime, combine the sunflower spread or soft butter with the icing sugar, cocoa powder and a splash of milk to make your icing.
  • Once the cake is cool, spread the icing over the top of it. Cut a Creme Egg into pieces and place it on top of the cake.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Oh, that looks amazing!! And it is made in slow cooker… I really need to give it a go sometime.

I never knew you could bake cakes in a slow cooker! I go through phases of using my slow cooker all the time, then lettng it collect dust again. This cake looks utterly scrummy, and just the incentive I need to get my slow cooker out from the bottom of my kitchen cupboards again! Tx

Oh my gosh this looks SO GOOD! Have pinned to try later 🙂

WOW – I do love your slow cooker recipes. Like Elizabeth I’ve pinned and must give this a go.

As an American from the Deep South I am a fan of buttermilk cakes and this look spectacular. I;m not a fan of creme eggs but I can imagine Galaxy eggs would work well too. Just not as gooey! Lovely work, Lucy. And well done on the Waitrose Instagram takeover too! 🙂

I really really really want to eat this – looks delicious

Oh goodness me, this looks good. Your talents with a slow cooker show no signs of slowing down! I am devastated we are nearing the end of Creme Egg season (although my jeans are not!) Thanks once again for joining in with #Bakeoftheweek

Wow! I bet that was popular in your house! Thanks for joining in with #BAKEoftheWEEK !

Dumb question from an American who uses slightly different terms – is a cake case like a cake pan?

Wow never knew a cake could be made in slow cooker- what one do you use?
