An Indescribable Slow Cooker Gingerbread Pudding Cake
Gingerbread turned into a luscious pudding cake you will never forget.
I always pictured out gingerbread as something you would only display (and I mean the house) on the dining table with all those gingerbread man along with it. Never have it really crossed my mind that my slow cooker can make something much more delectable named gingerbread.
Honestly, I am not really a big fan of gingerbread but this recipe has made a great difference. I am a fan though of pudding cakes, so gingerbread being a pudding cake is just a really good treat for me.
Check out the recipe below.
Slow Cooker Gingerbread Pudding Cake
