Crockpot Pecan Pie Cake!

It tastes just like your favorite pecan pie but without the crust. I call it a cake but there is nothing ‘cakey’ about it. Even the texture of this recipe is like a pecan pie. It’s hard to believe something this decadent can be so easy to prepare and be cooked in a slow cooker at that!

Ingredients You Will Need

  • chopped pecans – I do recommend using unsalted pecans, as the salted pecans can make the dessert a little too salty.
  • brown sugar – The brown sugar adds a nice richness and depth to the cake. I prefer to use light brown sugar for this recipe.
  • all purpose flour – The base of the cake is the flour. Make sure to measure it properly so that it has the right texture.
  • eggs – Reach for a room temperature egg as it will incorporate the best in the batter.
  • butter – Real butter is needed over margarine. Margarine is oily while the butter is going to add texture but also flavor to the cake.
  • vanilla – The secret is adding that splash of vanilla extract. It truly enhances all the flavors of the dessert to a whole new level.

I prefer using my 9×13 casserole crockpot for this recipe but any ol’ crockpot will do.

How to Make

Full steps on how to make this pecan pie cake are featured in the bottom of the post. This is a quick walk through on how it is made.

Ways to Serve Up This Cake

Eat your cake plain or dress it up for more flavor. Truly the toppings are endless, but here are a few of my ultimate favorites!

  • I love this served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. YUM!
  • Drizzle with some caramel sauce or even butterscotch sauce.
  • Add a big dollop of whipped cream for added sweetness.
  • Top the pie with some chocolate chips in the last 15 minutes of cooking to let them melt for a chocolate twist.

It’s not hard to see why this is one of our favorite recipes. Great way to free up the oven for holiday meals too and still have a ‘fresh warm pecan pie’ on the table!

How to Store Leftovers

If you do not eat all the pecan cake, simply place it in an airtight container and store it in the fridge. The cake will last 4-5 days easily. Then eat it cold or warm it up in the microwave for fresh out-of-the-oven warmth.

Or you can freeze the leftovers for later. Reach for a freezer container and freeze for 3-4 months. Then thaw in the fridge overnight or defrost in the microwave.


Can I use a slow cooker liner for easier cleanup?

Yes, the slow cooker liners work great. Just place one of them in the slow cooker and then pour in the cake mixture. It will make for a way easier cleanup.

What should the texture of the pecan pie cake be like when it’s done?

The texture is going to be like a pretty moist cake. You will find it is similar to a dump cake where it holds together but is softer in texture.

Crockpot Pecan Pie Cake


  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract


  • Beat the eggs until fluffy. In a seperate bowl, combine the pecans, brown sugar, & flour. Whisk the melted butter into the pecan mixture followed by the beaten eggs. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Spray the inside of your crockpot with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the batter into your crockpot. Cook on high for 1.5 to 2 hours. It should be very moist when done & everyone’s crockpot is different. Mine cooks it perfectly in exactly 2 hours but I’ve used another crockpot that it only took 90 minutes in, so check it at 90 minutes in and cook up to another 30 minutes as needed.
    Best served warm with vanilla ice cream! 😉
