Lemon Drizzle Cake – Only 1 Syn

Guilt Free🍰 and blooming gorgeous!

Lemon Drizzle Cake🍋

1 syn a slice and totally lush!

This has to be a slimming world staple cake. It’s light fluffy and low Syn. It’s been around for as long as I’ve been doing slimming world but sadly I have no idea who very first created this recipe. Either way it’s a winner! 🍋 .

Lemon Drizzle Cake 🍋

9 syns the whole cake, cut into 9 just 1 syn a slice🍋

50g of self raising flour. (8syns)

2 lemons

2tbs of sweetener. (1syn)

1/2tsp of baking powder

5 eggs separated.

1tsp of lemon essence.

Mix together your flour, sweetener, the zest of 2 of your lemons and the juice of 1. Add in your 5 egg yolks and essence and mix well.

Whisk your egg whites until very stiff. Gently fold into your lemon mixture.

Pour into your silicon or lined loaf tin.

Bake in a preheated oven @180 for 35mins.

For your drizzle squeeze the juice of half a lemon with 2tsp of sweetener and drizzle over the top at the end of cooking. Turn the oven off but leave your cake in a few more minutes to soak in the syrup.

It will shrink/sink a little. That is normal! I made the topping with 0%greek yogurt and a couple teaspoons of icing sugar for a extra couple of Syns but you don’t have to do this, just dust over a pinch of icing sugar or sweetener and add a few berries🍰
