Slow cooker chocolate and banana swirls

I have never cooked a desert in my slow cooker and when I came across the base for this recipe I knew I had to give it a go.

Ingredients... 

100g butter
3 cups self raising flour (I worked this out to be roughly 350g)
Teaspoon of salt
1 cup of milk
3 tablespoons of Chocolate spread
2 large bananas thinly sliced

Method...

Rub together the flour, butter and salt. Then gradually add the milk and stir. Once you have a smooth dough roll out into a rectangle. 
Spread your chocolate spread on to the dough and sprinkle on your bananas. 
Roll your dough up like a Swiss roll and slice into rounds about 5cm thick. 
Grease your slow cooker bowl and lay the slices of dough into the bowl. Making sure they are only one layer. (I had enough left over to make a second batch, it really does depend on the size of your slow cooker.)
Place lid on and cook on high for 1.5/2 hours. 


Once cooked they looked like this....


I can confirm that they were indeed very yummy and that there were no left overs! 

The great thing about these is that they are so versatile. You could do a sweet OR a savory version with lots of flavor options. I am definitly going to try savoury, possibly a pizza style swirl. 

What do you think? Would you give these a go?!
