Slow Cooker Strawberry Upside Down Cake 

This cake was inspired by a lovely fresh punnet of strawberries I picked up today. As it is a lovely sunny Bank Holiday weekend they were definitely going to be used in a cake straight away! What better than a slow cooker strawberry upside down cake to bring out the flavour of the strawberries.
