Slow Cooker Gingerbread Pudding Recipe

During the holidays, it seems we are so busy, itís almost impossible to find time to bake fancy desserts for all the parties and guests that show up at the house. In the case of this luscious Slow Cooker Gingerbread Pudding, the slow cooker is a huge timesaver, and it only takes a few minutes to assemble the ingredients. The pudding stays warm for an hour or two after itís done, so it wonít matter if it isnít time for dessert; the pudding is ready when you are.
Slow Cooker Gingerbread Pudding is a mixture of gingersnap crumbs and a custard concoction that is made of simple ingredients that are probably already on the pantry shelf or in the fridge; they are whizzed quickly in the blender. Candied ginger is added, and the pudding cooks by itself without supervision. A warm lemon sauce, made quickly in the microwave, either on the spur of the moment or a day or two ahead, tops the pudding. Not only is this easy pudding delicious, it is very festive as it contains seasonal holiday flavors. Gingerbread lovers will make sure there are no leftovers.
