This sweet slow cooker banana pudding is a fantastic dessert that cooks to be moist and loaded with flavor.
This dessert is far from the traditional banana pudding that you might know and love. Instead, this pudding is self-saucing, so by the end of cooking you will have an incredible “butterscotch” sauce. This sauce saves you from doing extra work when it comes to making accompaniments.
If you have lots of bananas that need using, then this recipe is perfect. I only recommend two in the recipe, but you can go up to four if you want it extra strong in banana flavors.
You should be able to feed four people from a single batch of this dessert. I recommend serving it with some ice cream or cream to help it go a little further. You can double the recipe, but you may need another slow cooker.
Leftovers of this pudding are excellent for breakfast the next day. The sauce helps ensure that the pudding remains moist when you reheat it. Simply keep the pudding in the fridge or freezer until you need it.
What to Serve with this Pudding
There is a ton of extras that you can have with this tasty slow cooker dessert. The sauce is usually more than enough, but if you are looking to go one step further, below are some great ideas.
A scoop or two of vanilla ice cream matches perfectly with the flavors of this delicious pudding. The ice cream will slowly melt and combine with the banana cake and butterscotch sauce. It is a truly amazing addition.
Homemade custard is a delicious option if you have a bit of spare time to spend in the kitchen. The custard is gorgeous, and is even better poured over the top of the pudding. It blends with the rest of the flavors nicely. If you do not have the time, then store-bought custard will work nicely.
The easiest option is to simply drizzle a bit of cream over the pudding. It is my favorite option as it helps cut through some of the sweetness of the pudding and sauce. I highly recommend giving it a try.

- If you love the combination of chocolate and banana, then be sure to add about half a cup of chocolate chips to the banana pudding mix. This extra ingredient will leave you with amazing gooey bits of chocolate in the pudding.
- The cornstarch can be left out without impacting this dish too much. The only reason to include it is to help thicken the sauce.
- As I mentioned above, you can add more bananas to this recipe if you would like.
- Cook on high for two hours if you need the dessert faster.
Note: I use a 5.5L (6 Quart) slow cooker for all the recipes that I have on this website unless specified. If you have a smaller or larger slow cooker, then you might need to adjust the ingredients.
