Commonly Asked Questions

How will I know when the pudding is done?

You can insert a knife to check if the cake part is already cooked. The cake should be light and moist while the sauce should be rich and thick. Watch the edges of the cake and when they’re not shiny or glossy, it means it’s ready. The middle could look underdone half-done but really it’s the pudding. 

Can I store my crockpot chocolate pudding cake?

Of course you can! You can place the cake inside an airtight bag or container and store it at room temperature for about 2 days, in the fridge for 4 to 5 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months! Then after, you can reheat it in a microwave or oven and top it with a scoop of ice cream, whipped cream, or frosting.
