Gluten Free Slow Cooker Cake Recipe

Mrs Fruci…


Old work colleagues


My friends


And all my family


Have one thing in common…


They all say ‘I’m slow’


That I walk ‘slow’


^^^ Mrs Fruci defined this as a strolling holiday walk (except I just do it all of the time)


Talk ‘slow’


^^^ I just like to make my point clear for you


And always seem to be the last one of the door when leaving the house


^^^ the infamous time at the in-laws when we were all heading out. The family are all in the car. The father-in-law walks back into the house to see me making an omelette <<< I had no idea everyone was in the car waiting for me (but I sure looked like a bit of a [insert here]. 


So, today…


I’m living up to this trait of being ‘slow’


^^^ Soon ripe, soon rotten, I say 😉


With a gluten-free, nutritious, filling and Fruci Family – approved (which is saying something) cake


That you can just leave cooking whilst doing your jobs and being out and about


Because you just bang it in the crock-pot / slow cooker and let it do it’s thing.


So here you go:


Ingredients (serves 16-18):


* 120 ml of cream (single or double works…single will reduce calories even more)

* 50g of melted butter 

* 50g of melted coconut oil

* 1 kcal fry spray

* 250g ground almonds (you could swap 50g of this for coconut flour)

* 1/2 tsp salt

* 1 tsp sodium bicarbonate

* 4 eggs

* 60g cookies and cream whey protein powder (chocolate or vanilla will do)

* 4 handfuls of mixed berries

* 3tbsp of stevia (or any sweetener)

* 4-5 squares of dark choc (I used 90% Lindt)


What do you do with it all?



1) Spray your crock-pot with 1kcal fry spray

2) In a bowl: mix the almonds, salt, sodium bicarbonate, whey protein, and stevia

3) In a separate bowl: mix the cream and eggs (whisk them)

4) Fold in the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients ^^^

5)  Mix in the melted coconut oil and melted coconut butter (without licking the spoon)

6) Stir in 2 handfuls of mixed berries and 2-3 squares of chopped dark chocolate 

7) Chuck it all in the slow cooker for at least 3 hours on LOW

8) Leave to cool

9) Heat 2 handfuls of berries and 2 squares of dark chocolate in a saucepan to make a sauce (or microwave) and spread it on top!

10) Portion size and you got breakfasts, snacks, and puddings that are filling, nutritious, on-the-go and only 200 calories a slice

^^^ The average slice of cake in Starbucks is about 400 calories!


And these were all Fruci Family approved…


and wait for it…


Even Mrs Fruci approved it!


Enjoy!
