Sugar Plum: Butterscotch Pudding Cake
Here is that cake recipe I promised you!  You see, I ate some of that delicious butterscotch budino, and then decided to use the rest in a cake – a pudding cake.  Baked in a slow cooker because why not?

I’ve never baked a cake in a crock pot before, but it can be done.  I just mixed all of the ingredients of this cake (butterscotch pudding, eggs, maple syrup, brown sugar, browned butter, cinnamon, cake flour, etc.), placed the batter in the crock pot, and voila!  The cake was done in about 2 hours on low.  Every crock pot is different though, so it may take you less time.

The cake was really moist, but not gummy, which I was worried about.   I made a salted caramel sauce to go on top.  I think when I make this again I’ll double the caramel sauce and pour half on top of the cake when it’s still baking, then use the remaining sauce for serving.

I think I’ll probably bake another cake in my crock pot soon.  It was kind of fun.  There’s something magical about slow cookers.  What kind of cake should I make next?

So yes, this cake is good.  I like it even better with vanilla ice cream on top.

Butterscotch Pudding Cake

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
200 grams cake flour (about 2 cups)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cups prepared butterscotch pudding

Salted Caramel Sauce
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons water
1/2 cup half-n-half or heavy cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of flaky sea salt

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; whisk and cook until butter starts to brown.
In a medium bowl, sift together cake flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk together browned butter, eggs, maple syrup, brown sugar and pudding until well combined.  Gently whisk in dry ingredients until just combined.

Butter a crock pot. Place batter in crock, cover, and cook on low 2 hours or until well risen and cooked in the middle.  Pour caramel sauce on top.  Cool a while before serving.

To make the salted caramel sauce, heat sugar and water in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Do not stir – just let the sugar slowly caramelize.  When the sugar is caramelized, take pan off of the heat and gradually whisk in hot cream until combined.  Place pan back on heat and whisk in the butter.  Heat and stir until caramel sauce is smooth.  Stir in vanilla and sea salt until combined.

Buying A Home In The UK

It can be one of the most stressful tasks around, buying a home. Before the purchase can be completed, there are lots of issues you need to think about. Don’t just go ahead and make an offer on the house, look at the home report so you know any structural issues and the overall history of the property. The home report will also enclose an energy report, a survey and a property questionnaire which needs to be commissioned by the current home owners.



Homes that don’t need home reports by law are new builds, right to buy homes and properties that have been transformed into a residential.

If the property has been on the market for a long time then it’s normal in Glasgow and the rest of the UK so you could get a bargain if you hunt long enough.

When you decide to put an offer in on a home, your legal team will do this on your behalf. Bare in mind that ‘offers over’ mean that not only should your bid on the home be over a certain about, there will be a cut off date for accepted bids.

So your bid has been accepted by the home owner. On the date of entry to the property, this is the date you transfer the whole amount to the home owner. Only new build properties need to be paid before the date of entry.

There’s lots to think about when purchasing a home, from making sure it’s in the right area, making sure your finances are in order, making sure the home you choose is right, ticking all the legal boxes etc. It can be a stress but it’s all worth it when you finally get into your own space.

if you’re looking to buy a new home, or looking for your very own new house build, there’s tons of great companies to choose from in Glasgow and furtherafield.
