Slow Cooker Blueberry, Lemon & Ginger Cake

Slow Cooker Blueberry, Lemon & Ginger Cake

This delicious Slow Cooker Blueberry, Lemon & Ginger Cake is made in the slow cooker / crock pot in just 3 hours.

Since I tried making my first cake in a slow cooker earlier this year, I have been keen to try out some new recipes. Earlier in the week, I had some blueberries that needed eating up and seeing as though I was off on a play date the next day I thought a cake would make use of the fruit. Finding a jar of opened lemon curd inside my fridge, it seemed only fitting to make a Slow Cooker Blueberry, Lemon & Ginger Cake.

I was already using the oven, so I thought I would use the slow cooker to make the cake in as it would cook away while I got on getting our dinner ready. It took just 3 hours to cook and you can see how I made it here in this step by step video

Once the cake was cooked, and I had managed to carefully remove it from the pot I found that by turning it upside down to serve,the blueberries and lemon curd had made jammy topping for it.  

As you can see from the photographs, the sponge itself was lovely and light and topped with a delicious gooey and sticky lemony blueberry topping.

This really was delicious! I think raspberries would work well in place of blueberries too.

  • Yummy Jenny the lemon curd and blueberry makes a lovely topping to the cake, it looks a bit like an upside down cake too! Love the flavours in this cake, it really does look delicious. Thanks for sending it over to the Slow Cooked Challenge x

  • This looks amazing Jenny! I love how gooey the top of the cake is – I imagine it would be delicious as a dessert with ice cream or custard. x

  • Fabulous looking gooey topping on the cake, just like an upside down cake. Slow cooker baking is brilliant as that’s probably the only occasion you can actually leave your cake completely unattended. Love the cake, love the flavours! x

  • Not too sure about adding copper!! Did you yell at him just as you were writing! Otherwise sounds good I might try it. xx

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, a virtual cup of tea and slice of cake awaits you x
