Are you looking for a great slow cooker dessert recipe to warm you up on a cold winter’s day? Look no further! This Warm Winter Lemon Cake will have everyone asking for seconds!
This recipe was adapted from recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks, a fundraiser cookbook put together by other dairy farmers.
I love crock pot desserts especially the ones that use a pudding mix and create a yummy lava type layer. This Rocky Road Chocolate Spoon Cake is great for when you need a chocolate fix.
Warm Winter Lemon Cake made in the Crock Pot
As is this cake has a hit of lemon flavor, (my hubby isn’t the biggest lemon fan). But if you would like to bump up the lemon flavor you could substitute a lemon cake mix or add a teaspoon of lemon extract to the pudding mixture.
This recipe is served more like a dessert in a bowl than a cake. The pudding will sink to the bottom created a lava type yumminess. If you don’t see any after the first spoonful keep looking. It sometimes goes towards the outside of the crock pots. All the more reason to eat some more! 🙂

Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe fool you. This was easy and delicious. It was better the next day and a healthy dusting of powdered sugar is, in my humble opinion, a must!
