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.

Slow Cooker Lemon and Mixed Berry Self-Saucing Pudding

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.

  • 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

For the sauce:

  • 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.
