Gingerbread Pudding Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 2 hours + standing
I served this to friends and my husband and we all loved it which is saying a lot especially when I realized I had never made a crockpot dessert that I thought came out good. I was extremely skeptical about the amount of liquid but it did turn out fine. I agree it might be a tad bit over the top with butter but I love butter! I might cut that down because it is very moist and I don't think it would be missed. After 2 1/2 hours cooking on high the middle was still not done but the outside looked very done so I wasn't sure what to do but I turned the crockpot to low and let it cook for another half hour and it was fine. I did let it sit like the recipe says and I think the middle finishes cooking then too. We had no part that wasn't cooked and the outside that looked so done I really liked! I gave it four stars only because it took a little adjusting to get it just right. My guests said absolutely a keeper! My husband immediately had seconds and he's not even a dessert eater.
The flavor of this cake was delicious! The only complaint my family had was that we thought the butter was excessive. There is ample liquid already, and it left it seeming a bit oily. Next time I will cut the butter in the final step by at least half, and I know it will be just perfect for my family's tastes!
incredibly easy and great flavor
Made this for an office Thanksgiving party today because I love my slow cooker and this sounded snazzy. Doubled the recipe in a 6-quart oval cooker, came out moist and flavorful without being too rich or too sweet. This recipe's a keeper, definitely making this again!
Picked this because the in-laws like gingerbread and that this could free up the oven. Super easy to throw together. Wasn't sure it was gonna work because it was really soupy going into the crock pot. The middle was still pretty soggy but the edge pieces had a nice cake-like texture. As for the flavor, it was too rich for me and not sweet enough. I could only take a few small bites and that was more than enough. Seeing as I made it for the in-laws I didn't get any positive feedback from them so I am guessing I won't be making this again.
Tried this recipe Friday night for a game night party and it was a complete disaster. I have been baking since I was 12 years old and have never had a recipe turn out so bad. The cake did not cook all the way and then burned on the bottom. There was no cake or pudding, just a disgusting tasteless mess. I tried to follow the recipe exactly as written, so I can't figure out what went wrong. All the other reviews make it sound so good and easy. This one will not make it into my recipe file.
Easy and sooo delicious. I served it with whipped cream. Will make again!
I had never made a cake in my slow cooker so I was curious how it would turn out. I was pleasantly surprised. It went together quickly, and was very good with real whipped cream on top. A tasty, noval idea that I will make again.
I doubled this recipe for my 6-qt. crock pot. It came out beautifully. I only used half the butter called for in the topping - didn't miss it. The whole family liked this. We topped it with whipped cream. Next time I want to try lemon sauce.
I love the pudding cake recipes and as a collector, I especially love seeing the pictures of the food in the vintage and depression glassware!
