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)
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?
