Slow Cooker Lemon and Berry Self-Saucing Pudding
This recipe for slow cooker lemon and berry self-saucing pudding or pudding cake was inspired by a slow cooker Facebook group I follow called Slow Cooked Wonders.
I love a fruit pudding and decided to use a mix of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries in my self-saucing pudding. It’s also great with strawberries in it. You make the cake mixture up and then pour on a mixture of lemon infused boiling water and sugar which makes the sauce that forms underneath the pudding.

Below is the finished product after serving. The sauce was purple from the fruit and the sponge was lovely and soft.
A fruity dessert made in your slow cooker, ideal to warm you up in the autumn and winter months
- 100 g butter melted
- 250 g self-raising flour
- 140 g caster sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- zest and juice of two lemons
- 1 punnet blueberries
- 1/2 punnet raspberries
- 1/2 punnet sweet blackberries
- 3 medium free-range eggs
- 150 ml milk
- 250 ml boiling water
- 100 g caster sugar
- The flesh from the two lemons used for zest and juice
Remove and grease your slow cooker pot.
In a bowl, mix the flour, caster sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and a pinch of salt.
Add the butter and mix.
Whisk together the eggs, milk, lemon juice in a jug, then pour this onto the dry ingredients and mix till smooth.
Stir in the berries, then pour the mixture into the slow cooker pot.
In a jug, mix together 250 ml boiling water with the flesh from the lemons and leave to infuse for five minutes.
Strain out the lemon, keeping the water, then mix in the 100 g of caster sugar and stir until dissolved.
Pour this mixture over the batter in the pot.
Cover and cook on high for approx 2 hours, or until the sponge is firm and no liquid areas remain. It took just over two and a half hours on high to cook in my slow cooker, which is quite slow.
