I never cook in my sc without liquid in the bottom so can I rest the tin on a bed of foil balls with a little water……I so want it to work as our oven has just died
and it is one of the few cakes my daughter can eat at the moment due to a sack of gall stones !!!!!

So easy to make instead of sultanas I used a cup of apricot and almond muesli. Will definitely make again.

Embarrassing admission time with a happy ending. I had to try this again after my first attempt was less than successful. Particularly when today, i rembered id been forced to put my tin with mixture in the fridge for an hour due to being needed elsewhere, then putting it in the sc straight from the fridge. So today i tried again and made sure i could put the tin straight in the slow cooker.,i also used slightly less splenda even though the box says it measures like for like………..and as i red the recipe today i stopped….2 cups of sr flour.?…..in my first attempt i had only used one cup. I had a good laugh at mt silliness. The result was far more satisfying today. It rose higher, it was less heavy and still tasted awesome.

I made this yesterday so quick and easy to prep using basic pantry foods
it was delicious, for the tea I used two mixed berry green tea teabags and used raw sugar ,I also added a couple of teaspoons of apple pie spice it was amazing ,
OK the results are in. I used the splenda and the taste was beautiful, hence the four stars. It did not rise and it was very heavy, but I will definitely do it again. At the worst it will become a dessert with cream or ice cream. And this time I will take Paulene’s advice (thankyou btw) before I use splenda as an exact substitute for the castor sugar. I will read the box and let everyone know…I was already thinking to 1/2 the spenda next time and see what happens. I also need to extend the cooking time, as I gave it an extra 30 min’s and probably should have gone another 15…but I just had to taste it 🙂 and it was very nice
I couldn’t say with certainty having never tried it but I think I’d give it a go?
Does the splenda box say if it usually substitutes equal amounts for sugar?

Love this but have never made it in a sc or oven. Can anyone advise if splenda would work ok in place of the sugar? I am diabetic
Marvelous quick easy great tasting tea cake. Super with a swipe of butter and a cuppa! I am looking forward to making it again using different flavoured teas such as Earl Gray. Thank you.
Marvelous recipe, easy, quick and tastes great! Bit concerned as the mix was very tight but as it was the first time I left it and stuck to the recipe. Turned out great. Thank you!
