Slow Cooker Jam Swirl Cake

Swirls of peanut butter inside brownies or chocolate batter in cakes always look so delicious, and this inspired me to try a jam swirl in this slow cooker cake. This is a simple muffin-style cake with jam inside, lovely as an afternoon treat or after-school snack. Serve it warm with ice-cream or custard, so indulgent!

You could try different flavours of jam, or even Nutella, chocolate spread or peanut butter to make a change. How about peanut butter and jam, that should make a great combination if you are a PB&J fan. Keep an eye out as I’ll be trying peanut butter and caramel very soon! My slow cooker jam swirl cake is so simple to make kids could help you with this too.

Recipe Notes

Optional: add cherries too. All kinds of jam work well - strawberry, raspberry, plum, blueberry, whatever you like!

 

Cooking time:
In my slow cooker this took. 2-3 hrs approx on high, but mine cooks slowly. Yours may take less, check from about 1.5 hrs and remove the pot when a skewer comes out clean. Turn out onto a rack to cool.

Just made this and it was fantastic. Recipe worked perfectly and tasted great. Putting more jam in next time. Didn’t use a tea towel over the lid I forgot. But it didn’t need it. The cake was lovely and moist. Yum. Thank you.
