    i await in anticipation

    1. Hi Maree

      You could do it in another sized slow cooker but a large one like yours will of course be a thinner cake so will cook much quicker
      Just keep an eye on it for when it bounces back when lightly touched in centre or when a skewer inserted comes out clean 🙂

    Looks good, smells good, tastes good . Did rise as much as the picture but super moist. ? will make again

  4. I have a crock-pot express. My crockpot has gone.
    i cant use a teatowel in this one as the lid locks down and the vent is either open or closed.
    do i just put it in with the vent open?
    Do i need to put a lid on the pudding basin?


  5. Made this in my 1.5 litre slow cooker
    It was a little burnt around the edges in one area.
    I’m not sure if it’s because I kept it in the slow cooker while off for another 30mins before it was cooler and we were ready to it eat or maybe my slow cooker but hotter so needed a bit less time.
    The taste was amazing and it came out of the bowl really easy.
    I will remove it a bit earlier next time
