Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake

A sweet and chocolaty cake with a hot fudge sauce made in the crock pot.

Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake is an easy to make dessert recipe from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.


I made Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake to celebrate 15 years of marriage last week. We decide to have a simple evening in.

We usually go out someplace and make a big night of our anniversary or weekend but this year we spent the actual night at home eating dinner and dessert with the kids and then snuggled on the couch to watch Thursday night football.

After 15 years and 3 kids we've gotten to the point that it doesn't matter what we do so much as we are spending time together and having fun. Plus we had the previous weekend alone. When you have kids having the house to yourself for a night or two is like a dream come true! 

And since we were celebrating we had to have dessert, otherwise it's not really a celebration. So I decided to make a Crock Pot Hot Fudge Cake with Lorna's help since I was having a massive chocolate craving, and it's super simple to put together.

It's a sweet chocolaty cake that floats to the top over a layer of fudgy sauce.

It definitely requires a scoop of ice cream to round out the richness and it's great for company since it's made ahead of time and requires very little supervision.

Apple Coffee Cake With Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crumb

Monday, August 6, 2018
Apple Coffee Cake recipe with Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crumb is a fall breakfast favorite from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Apple Coffeecake With Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crumb Swirl has been a regular on our fall must haves for years. I originally made it with the Krustez Cinnamon Crumb Coffeecake mix for years until I had perfected  this little gem..

It's perfectly moist and the cinnamon brown sugar crumb topping provides the perfect contrast to the tart Granny Smith Apples. I usually use whole wheat pastry flour to increase the fiber, but all-purpose flour works equally well I can never tell the difference in this recipe between the two flours.

The cinnamon crumb swirl ensures a taste of the cinnamon brown sugar crumb topping in every bite.

We love this cake for brunch or dessert and it's always a hit. 

Cherry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Thursday, August 2, 2018
Easy to make Cherry Cream Cheese Coffeecake is perfect for brunch, dessert or with your afternoon tea.



Writing about Cherry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake is like pure torture.

I was only able to enjoy one slice yesterday morning for breakfast plus or minus a few bites off of Colt's if he happened to sit down next to me Sunday night. Surely I was shorted my fill.

When I left Monday afternoon there was about 1/4 of the cake left but Lorna polished that off the minute we walked out the door and then pretended it was an itty bitty piece when her brother's complained she didn't share.

It was like food wars in our house, and somehow I always end up loosing.

I might have to make another one just to subdue the cravings of the creamy cream cheese meets cherry filling all wrapped up in a nice cozy lemon and vanilla scented cake then topped with a vanilla scented crunchy, sugary, almond topping. Oh so good! 

If your looking for something to take to your next holiday gathering this is the perfect choice. It makes a fabulous breakfast or brunch item because the cakes not too sweet or dense but the perfect texture to pair with the cream cheese and cherries, a fabulous dessert choice for a dinner party or just a special treat! 

Sorry to repeat myself, but it was sooo delicious!
