This summer has been a great one. I'm doing my best to live it up while it lasts, so bring on the summer desserts! With the hot weather, it's nice to have a dessert that won't melt but also won't heat up your house with a hot oven.
Cole liked the pudding cake, especially with ice cream. Tony liked it a lot! He was the one who ate most of it and took it to work the next day too. Bennett, who usually loves everything, actually didn't like this. He said it was too sweet. A kid who doesn't like sweet things? What's that about? I'm not complaining though, it's a good thing...because it means more for me.
Crockpot Berry Pudding CakeAdapted from Canadian Living Slow Cooker Collection
2 cups frozen blueberries
2 cups frozen raspberries
1/2 cup granulated sugar
4 tsp cornstarch
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 lemon juice
- Grease bottom and sides of slow cooker. Add berries. Combine 1/2 cup of the sugar and cornstarch, then pour over the berries. Stir them together.
- For cake topping, beat together butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then beat in vanilla.
- In another bowl, combine flour, cinnamon and baking powder. Add to butter mixture a third at a time, alternating with half the milk at a time. Use a spatula to scrape the batter over top of the berries and smooth the top.
- In a small saucepan, combine sugar and lemon juice. Heat to boiling, stirring until the sugar has completely dissolved. Pour over top of the batter.
- Cover and cook on high for 3 hours, until the batter has cooked through. Remove the insert and allow to cool for at least an hour.
