Slow cooker cake recipe

sc choc cake I was at my nieces birthday on the weekend where her Godfather had made an awesome cake, which he revealed was a slow cooker cake recipe. The concept of a slow cooked cake had never occurred to me before, so straight away I was intrigued.

I am often in the situation where my house is a mess, the kitchen is atrocious, and I’ll think, hmmm, I should bake a cake!  Today was one of those days. Problem is, I often make the cake, pop it in the oven and then forget about it!

The Paleo Journey Begins…

I’m one of those people who often talks before I think. One time I told someone how much I hated my bread maker and how I never use it and asked her if she wanted it, because I wanted to get rid of it. I really went on about it. She looked at me, paused and said, no thanks, we bought it for you as a wedding present. You know when you want to get a shovel and dig yourself a hole? Continue reading
