Low Syn Chocolate Sponge Cake / Muffins

This is a great recipe and you do end up with a really nice chocolate cake

The whole cake works out as 9 syns, I got 9 good size muffins so only 1 syns each 😀 😀 😀

You Will Need : 

  • 6 eggs
  • 1oz Self Raising Flour
  • 1oz Cocoa
  • 9 tbsps of Sweetner
  • 2tsps of Vanilla or Orange Essence

Method :

  • Separate the eggs, so egg whites in one bowl and egg yolks in another bowl
  • Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks and leave to one side
    In the other bowl whisk the egg yolks with the vanilla or Orange essence and the sweetener, add roughly 1/4 of the whisked egg whites and then beat the mixture until a pale yellow.
  • Gradually sieve in the flour and mix gently, now add the rest of the egg whites and fold in gently
  • Pour the mixture into a lined cake tin and bake in the oven for about 20 mins on 160. Or you can do this on a baking tray and make as a Swiss roll. If doing on a baking tray it will cook quicker.I do it as muffins and they take about 10 mins to cook

Once the cake is cooked leave to cool then eat an enjoy …. 😀 😀

Bacon & Sausage Potato Cakes

These are great for any time of the day and are a fantastic way to use up any left over Mash Potato ….

You can pretty much add what ever you fancy to these ….. In these ones pictured below there is

  • Cold carrot & swede mash (Potato, Carrot & Swede)
  • 3 Rashers Of Bacon
  • 1 Sausage (cooked & cold) – 1 syn
  • 1 Onion finely sliced.

Method :

  • Spray a pan with frylight and add the onions, fry them for a few minutes
  • Chop the bacon up quite small and add that to the onion, do the same with the sausage and fry off for about 5 minutes.
  • Put the cold mash in a bowl and add the onion mix, mix it all well together.
  • Now you need to shape some of the potato mix into a good size ball as big or as small as you like.
  • Spray the pan with frylight again and then fry the cakes for about 5 mins on each side, you do need to be very careful when you turn them over as the potato can be quite soft.
  • Once the cakes are brown on each side then they are ready to eat.

Depending on what you add to the mash would depend on how many syns they would. I sometimes add diced peppers and mushrooms ……

The ones pictured had 1/2 syn for the 4 as I did use a sausage….. 😀
