LRA&H Cook Book - Lemon Upside-Down Cake in a Crockpot

Yeah it sounds weird - you use a crockpot? - but it actually works, and is quite good... Easy, too.

* Cake

1 box yellow or lemon cake mix
1 pkg. lemon pudding mix (instant)
1 pkg (8 oz) sour cream
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
4 eggs
2 tsp lemon juice

* Sauce

1 Tbl butter or margarine
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup lemon juice - (or the juice from 1 or 2 lemons)

In a large bowl, mix together the cake ingredients and stir until well moistened. Spread batter in a lightly greased 3 1/2 quart slow cooker. Then combine sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour boiling mixture over the batter. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 hours. Edges will be slightly browned. Turn heat off and leave in the pot for about 30 minutes with cover slightly ajar. When cool enough to handle, hold a large plate over the top of the cooker then invert. Enjoy.
