Ingredients

Directions

  • Lightly coat the inside of a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine gingerbread mix and milk until mix is moistened. Stir in raisins (batter will be thick). Spread gingerbread batter evenly in the bottom of the prepared cooker.

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the water, brown sugar, and butter. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Carefully pour sugar mixture over batter.

  • Cover and cook on high-heat setting (do not use low-heat setting) for 2 hours (center may appear moist but will set up as it stands).

  • Remove liner from cooker, if possible, or turn off cooker. Let cake stand, uncovered, for 45 minutes to cool slightly before serving.

  • To serve, spoon warm cake into dessert dishes. If desired, serve with vanilla ice cream.

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your cake is finished cooking, spoon it out of your slow cooker. Once the food is out of your slow cooker liner, simply dispose of the liner. Note: Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.

As I couldn¿t get the gingerbread mix I used a date loaf mix. It made a killer sticky date pudding!

Really wanted to try making this, but couldn't find anything at the grocery store resembling 'gingerbread mix' in either the cake or cookie sections of the baking aisle! (This was in a large Save-on-Foods store.) Is there a general mix of ingredients & ratios that could be substituted to make such a dry 'mix' at home from scratch? Very frustrating sometimes to find great-looking recipes that rely on particular brands or items that I can't always find in Canadian shops.
