Low syn baking...

Spent the afternoon baking some low syn treats/snacks.

Wanted to try out the scran bran that I bought in class.

The first thing I made was the


4 Scan Bran 
2 eggs 
3 or 4 tbsp sweetener (to taste) 
1 sachet Belgian Choc Options
26g Curly Wurly bar
Soak the Scan Bran in boiling water to soften. Then drain and mash. 
Beat the eggs and stir into mix, along with the sweetener and Belgian Choc Options 
Chop the Curly Wurly into pieces and add to the mix 
Pour the mixture into a microwavable bowl and cook for around 6 minutes
When cooked the cake will be springy to the touch and will have pulled away from the side

You can also cook the cake on 200°C/Gas Mark 6 for approximately 30 minutes

It's just 12 Syns for the whole cake and can be divided into as many slices as you like

I found the recipe HERE.

It is quite nice, I was a little sceptical. Definitely nicer when it's cooled.

Next I made a...


The whole cake is 9 syns on all plans, or you can have it as a Healthy Extra B choice plus 4 syns (5 Scan Bran = HEB). Alternatively it would slice nicely into 9 pieces to make 1 syn per portion. A single slice would probably fill you up more than an Alpen Light bar!
5 Scan Bran
a large mugful of strong tea (I use 2 tea bags to make it)
28g dried mixed fruit (4 syns)
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (0.25 syns - I don't bother to count it's so small)
5 tablespoons sweetener
2 tablespoons mixed spice
  1. Soak the Scan Bran and dried fruit in the tea until soft and mush it up
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix
  3. Pour into a microwaveable container (I use a silicone loaf tin) and microwave on high for 6-7 minutes/ in an 180' oven for 30 mins (which is what I did)

I found this recipe HERE.

This is also a lot nicer than it actually looks.
