Slow Cooker Summer Sweets You'll Love

Don’t miss out on these summer sweets that you and your guests will adore

Just because it is summer, doesn't mean you can’t bake a delicious sweet!

When summer rolls around, your sweet tooth begins to ache. Not that you don’t love the frozen summer treats, but you long for those freshly baked cookies and cakes that pop out of the oven. With summer months being far too hot to turn the oven on, it may see like you won’t be able to satiate that homemade fresh-baked craving for a few months. But we are here to happily report that you are wrong!

With the help of your slow cooker, you’ll be able to “bake” desserts that are as fresh and delicious as they are from the oven. Check out these simple recipes here:

Slow Cooker Nutella Pudding Cake Recipe

Fact: Anything with Nutella is awesome. Need I say more? This cake is decadent, delicious, and perfect with vanilla ice cream. Or better yet, with coconut ice cream. That would be awesome. Five stars — double the recipe if you're having company.

Slow Cooker Cranberry-Orange Cake Recipe

This is adapted from a Bundt cake that my mom makes that I just love. It worked just fine in the slow cooker (6 quarts is ideal) and was gobbled up. If you want to cook it in a Bundt pan, bake at 325 degrees F for 1½ hours.

Crockpot Chocolate Lava Cake

Everyone who tries this dessert falls in love with it. Using a slow cooker liner makes cleanup a breeze.
