2 ingredient slow cooker cake

2 ingredient slow cooker cake


  • 1 (540g) vanilla cake mix.
  • 1 x 400g tin diced two fruits (we used peach and pear)


Step 1. Line 3.3 L round slow cooker with baking paper and gather cake mix and fruit.

Step 2. Mix fruit into cake mix using a spatula until well combined.

Step 3. Pour into slow cooker and smooth over top. Place tea towel under the lid (to collect condensation). Cook on high for 2 hours or until cooked through when checked with a skewer.

Step 4. Remove from slow cooker and ice when cooled.



  • There are a number of methods to using a slow cooker to bake a cake. This one places the mixture directly into the pot.
  • You can also place a cake tin into the slow cooker on top of an upturned saucer (so it isn’t touching the bottom). The one common thing is to always use a tea towel under the lid of the slow cooker to absorb condensation.
  • You can use any cake mixture in the slow cooker. It can be a packet mix, a from scratch mix or even a cheaty 2 ingredient mix like we have used.
