So long as the bowl would be oven proof then yes you can slow cook in it 🙂

Meg the recipe does say plain and self raising flour, is this wrong.
I have a big slow cooker, could I put it in Pyrex bowl, put some water in slow cooker, and cook it in Pyrex bowl.

Treacle instead of golden syrup would make the cake a little darker and richer, but a good substitute for golden syrup if not available, and I would think it is a universal description.

Such an easy cake! The only thing I didn’t add was alcohol (because I didn’t have any) so I just used cooled black tea. Also had to cook 7 hours direct in the Crockpot. Everyone loved it, so moist, and I will definitely be making it again.

You could do either but I find baking paper the best.
No chance of sticking then 🙂

This recipe sounds great but I’ve never baked in my slow cooker. Is greasing the bowl enough or would baking paper help?
I believe you would add the 1/3 cup water to the initial mixture?
I’ve updated this now to prevent further confusion.
Hi. Can someone please tell me where/when you add the water. I can’t see it used anywhere in the recipe but it is shown in the ingredients. Jan in Brisbane Australia

We have our conversion page right here on this website which you could use 🙂
And no Golden Syrup is different to Corn syrup 🙂

As an American, I’m not sure what “golden syrup” is. Is this corn syrup? Also, How do I convert this to teaspoons and tablespoons from grams?

I thought the recipe said 1/4 cup each of plain and self raising, bigger but will cook again. It will be nice with some custard

I did this cake today using a Kambrook 3ltr slow cooker, has been on for nearly 7 hrs, it needs a little longer. Looking forward to trying it, the house has smelt sooooo good all day 🙂

Dont forget to put a tea towel under the lid when cooking

Do you use both the rum and water?

I presume you add the 1/3 cup water to the mixture. Mine took 7 hours to cook.
