Method

  • Brush the inside of the slow cooker pot with a little softened butter.
  • Make the caramel by placing the sugar in a heavy based pan or frying pan and heat over a low to medium heat until the sugar melts, do not stir the sugar at this point. Once the sugar has melted, increase the heat and cook until the caramel turns a light golden brown, then pour immediately into the base of the slow cooker pot.
  • Sit the apricot halves in the caramel, round side downwards.
  • To make the sponge, sieve the flour, sugar and salt together into a bowl. Whisk in the eggs, milk, vanilla, melted butter and 3 tbsp juice from the tinned peaches to make a batter.
  • Pour on top of the apricots, cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on ‘High’ for 2 hours, or until the pudding feels firm and is cooked through.
  • When the pudding is cooked, remove the pot from the slow cooker. Loosen the edges of the pudding with a knife and leave to cool for a few minutes. Put a plate on top of the pot and carefully turn it upside to turn out the pudding – be very careful incase any loose caramel drips out.

Phil's Tips

This pudding is so easy using a 3.5 litre / 200W slow cooker, please check the instructions and any guidance notes for your model, as the cooking time or setting may need adjusting slightly.
