From reading my blog over the past year or so you will notice I use my slow cooker a lot more these days, I love spending the day in the kitchen but with small children and work it’s not always possible. Slow Cooking is my way of still making my own dishes from scratch without having to commit to stirring and checking various pots and pans all day. I probably use it once a week at least. It wasn’t until quite recently that I started making slow cooker desserts. I first made a cake in the slow cooker about 18 months ago and I was surprised how good it was – yes it didn’t look as attractive as an oven baked cake but for us to eat at home it was perfectly tasty. I now use it quite a lot to make dishes like bread pudding and suet puddings – it works really well for this type of dessert.
Now Summer seems to have arrived for us in the UK I thought it would be the perfect time to share these slow cooker dessert ideas – mainly as just because its too hot to bake some days this does not stop us wanting freshly cooked sweet treats! Check out the following recipes from myself and some of my favourite food bloggers:
Firstly here is a Giant Nutella Scone from BakingQueen74:
Next up is my super popular Golden Syrup Pudding:
Another gorgeous idea from BakingQueen74 is this White Chocolate & Lemon Cake:
Finally here is my Hot Cross Bun & Butter Pudding, in place of hot cross buns you could use fruit loaf, pannetonne or choc chip brioche!
