    Any pudding you would traditionally steam can be cooked in a slow cooker. Fab for cooking/reheating your Christmas pudding when you have no room on the hob. I cook my Christmas pudding overnight. 1 1/2 pts of water lasts 8 hours with no boiling over or need to top up. I used to hate the day I couldn't go out cos the pudding was on and needed watching.

  • Rach, I've found one for you.

    Crockpot apple pie

    8 Tart Apples peeled and sliced (try Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples)
    1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon allspice
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    3/4 cup milk
    2 tablespoons butter, softened
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    1-1/2 cup Bisquick, divided
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    3 tablespoons butter, cold
    Toss apples in large bowl with cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Place apple mixture in lightly greased slow cooker. Combine milk, softened butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and 1/2 cup of the Bisquick. Spoon over apples.
    Combine the remaining Bisquick with the brown sugar. Cut cold butter into Bisquick mixture until crumbly. Sprinkle this mixture over top of apple mixture.
    Cover and cook on low 6 to 7 hours or until apples are soft.

  • Rice pudding would be nice in a slow cooker

    and I would imagine bread and butter pudding would also be lovely

    you can change the sultanas for dried apricots for a change
  • Thanks Mimijane

  • Not an every day recipe, but I cooked my Christmas puds in the slow cooker last year, and they were great - and no worrying about pressure cookers.

    Christmas Pudding

    Make pudding to your usual recipe and place in pudding bowl, put the pudding in the slow cooker, pour in boiling water, to about 2/3 up the side of the basin and then cover and leave. It will not boil dry or spoil. If bowl is slightly too tall for the lid on cooker to fit properly, cover the top of the cooker and the pudding with a sheet of foil and tuck it under the rim, then put the lid on top to weight it down. A 2 pint/1 litre pudding takes about 13 hours to cook on 'high'. Smaller ones would need to have less time.
