Crock-Pot Lemon Pudding Cake

Are you a Lemon Lover?  Have you ever tried to prepare desserts in your Crock-Pot/slow cooker?  I have a wonderful dessert recipe for you today.  If you enjoy Lemons, you need to try this Crock-Pot Lemon Pudding Cake.  It reminds me of a perfect sunshiny day.  I just feel happy when eating this burst of lemon sunshine goodness.  This Lemon Pudding Cake is sweet but balanced with a little tart.  It makes a delicious cake that forms on top of a creamy pudding.  It only takes about an hour to prepare this dessert in the Crock-Pot so keep that in mind when you plan to serve it.  This Crock-Pot Lemon Pudding Cake is best when you serve it warm right out of the slow cooker.  I love topping my desserts including this one with a little homemade whipped cream.  If you love lemon, check out my Easy Lemon Cake recipe.

    Thanks for stopping by this morning. I love the cake with this lemon pudding and the fact that it is made in the crock-pot. BIG BONUS!

    Two of my kids have had the stomach bug this week. It is lasting 2 to 3 days depending on the kid. I am just hoping no one else gets it, including ME.

    Have a great Thursday!

    I have never tried this Lemon Pudding Cake in my 6 quart crock-pot. I would think it would work but be thinner, so it would cook faster. As soon as the top center of the cake firms up (it does not brown), it is done.

    I hope you are doing well!

    Thanks for stopping by this morning and leaving me a comment.

    Lemon cake and warm pudding together sounds great. Do you think this would work in a bigger crockpot? Mines is 6qt
