This is a lovely recipe, but when I was making it, a friend told me that she had made this in a slow cooker!!! Mine turned out very well using the above method, but I might give the slow cooker a chance next time.

I substituted the 100g sugar for 10g Canderel powdered sweetener. It turned out beautifully but next time I will put 12.5g sweetener.
