Slowcooker Chocolate Swirl Banana Cake recipe

I had a bunch of really ripe bananas that had to be used or thrown away. I wanted to make a cake with bananas for my Mom, since she loves them. But it was hot and I didn’t want to heat up the house. I decided to try making the cake in the crockpot. It was super easy to make and came out really well. Here’s how I made it.

Slowcooker Chocolate Swirl Banana Cake


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1x 18.25 oz box yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • chocolate syrup (1 good sized squirt, estimating it’s about 1/4 cup)


Spray crockpot with nonstick cooking spray.

Mash up the bananas.

Add in the cake mix, eggs and chocolate chips and mix well.

Pour cake mix  into crockpot.

I’m wondering if I could try this in our cast iron dutch oven when camping. I think our family would be impressed.

That looks really delicious. The only crockpot dessert I think I have made is a flan.

Never tried any slow cooker desserts before now. Like the way it won’t heat the house on hot, hot days.
