  1. OMG wow!!! This is so yummy served warm with a little ice cream ?? this fits perfectly in my 3lt oval sc with a tea towel under the lid it took 2hrs to cook perfectly? fantastic recipe will try another jam next time I make this ? thanks for sharing it with us Linda & Suzi ?

  2. This is just delightful. Followed Jodie’s lead and had it straight of SC with ice cream. Very easy recipe. I doubled the jam and will use now next time

  3. Modified this recipe due to made in 1.5l baby slow cooker the cake & some jam did overflow slightly from the top of cooker. The cake did turn out good & moist.
    Happy with end result as I made this from ingredients on hand in my pantry for visitors for afternoon tea everyone loved it! ???
