Recipe for Slow Cooker Fudgy Banana Cake

Recipe for Slow Cooker Fudgy Banana Cake and Muffins #slowcooker #dessert #crockpot #chocolate
Make into muffins instead, if you prefer
As you can see it's really dense, fudgy and moist!

Makes 8-10 servings

1 devils food cake mix, dry (or some other chocolate based cake mix would probably be fine)
2 eggs
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1 package chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

1.  In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients.  Stir until mixed well.
2.  Pour batter into a greased 3-4 quart slow cooker.
3.  Cover and cook on LOW for about 3-4 hours or on HIGH for about 2-3.
4.  Spoon the cake into bowls and serve with vanilla ice cream.

You can also make these into muffins/cupcakes.  Just fill cupcake liners about 2/3 full.  Cook in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes.  For my muffins I left out the chocolate chips.

Happy Birthday to me!  Yay!  Last year I made this cake in the slow cooker and in 2009 I made this brownie fudge cake...but I liked this easy banana one probably the best.

This birthday cake is just how I like it...moist, dense, fudgy and very very chocolaty.  Also it has 4 ingredients.  It takes about 5 minutes to get into the slow cooker.  I made it a second time without the chocolate chips and made it into muffins.  They are deliciously easy and a great way to use up ripe bananas. 4 stars.

    One question, do you slice the bananas before adding or mash them? Thanks....Marta
