Slow Cooker Jam Swirl Cake
A simple and delicious cake with a swirl of jam through it, made in your slow cooker
- 300 g self raising flour
- Pinch of salt
- 250 ml milk
- 60 ml veg oil I used sunflower
- 1 egg
- 100 g caster sugar
- Strawberry jam or use different flavours of jam
- 100 g chopped glace cherries optional
Put the flour and salt in a large bowl.
Mix the milk, egg, oil and sugar together in another bowl.
Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix gently.
Put half the mixture in your prepared (greased, lined) slow cooker bowl.
Drop on some spoonfuls of jam.
Top with the rest of the cake batter, then add more spoonfuls of jam on top.
Swirl the jam around with a knife to achieve a pretty effect.
Optional: add cherries too. All kinds of jam work well - strawberry, raspberry, plum, blueberry, whatever you like!
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.
