Crock Pot Elvis Pudding Cake has plenty of banana and peanut butter flavor and a pudding-like texture. Plus a little chocolate for good measure. This slow cooker dessert is super easy to make with a box of cake mix and a box of instant banana cream pudding mix.
Elvis’s birthday is just around the corner. I think he would have been something like 82 years old. It’s common knowledge that Elvis liked to eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
A box of banana cream instant pudding mix produces the banana flavor in this yummy crock pot dessert. The base of the cake is yellow cake mix with peanut butter mixed into the batter.
The pudding mix gets mixed with milk to make pudding and then poured into the crock pot when it is just partially set.
The peanut butter flavored batter gets poured on top. The whole thing is cooked for 3 to 3 1/2 hours on LOW.
Next, take the lid off and sprinkle a bunch of peanut butter chips and a few chocolate chips on top. Cover the crock pot again until the chips are partially melted.
I adore the flavor of peanut butter and banana together. In fact, a banana smeared with peanut butter is my go to breakfast. I never get tired of it.
This Crock Pot Elvis Pudding Cake takes the wonderful combination of peanut butter and bananas to a whole new level. It tastes divine served warm or cold with a little whipped cream and fresh banana slices.

This didn’t work for me at all! The flavor profile is there. I had cake on the outer rim and just goop on the top. I even left in crockpot over 5 hours. The pudding just remained soup on the bottom
Me too! Never setting up ever. A fail!
Can this be cooked in the oven. If so, at what temp and time?
Do you think this recipe could be doubled? If somwhat adjustments should i make?
I wouldn’t recommend doubling it. I think it would get overdone around the edges and not cooked enough in the middle. Maybe a neighbor has a crock pot you could borrow and you could make two?
I ❤️ peanut butter and bananas. Can’t wait to try this recipe. Thank you for sharing!
I need to use my crock pot for dessert more often! This pudding cake looks so good!
