'Half Syn' Roulade - Slimming World Cake

Yes, you did read that right it's a 'half a syn' cake, and not only that, its really nice!


Over the years of Slimming World I've tried many different dessert recipies and I've always been hard pushed to find a good one.   I find they are either not that nice, or not worth the effort or the syns but since trying this at a taster session in the group I attend I've finally found the answer!

I'd put off making it for years, thinking it would be difficult but I've made it several times now and it's always turned out fine!

Ingredients
  • 4 medium eggs, seperated
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Fat free Greek yoghurt
  • 3 tbsp of sweetener (level not heaped)
  • Raspberries (or any other Syn free fruit)
Instructions
  1. Add yoghurt, sweetener, vanilla essence & baking powder to the egg yolks
  2. Whisk until creamy and put to one side
  3. Take the egg whites and whisk until stiff
  4. Add half of the egg whites to the egg yolk mixture and stir in gently
  5. Then fold the other half of the eggs whites into the mixture
  6. Take an oven tray, line line with grease proof paper and spray with plenty of fry light to avoid the cake sticking to the paper
  7. Pour the mixture on the tray/paper
  8. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown 180c (it doesn't take very long to bake so keep an eye on it)
  9. Whilst warm gently peel the paper from the cake and then leave to cool
  10. Once cooled, use a big knife to gently remove the cake from paper
  11. While cooling take the remainder of the yoghurt and add sweetener to taste
  12. Spread the yoghurt onto the (now cooled) cake and add whichever fruit you are using
  13. Then gently roll the cake up into a roll (like a swiss roll)
  14. Cut into 4-6 pieces - or eat the whole cake yourself for just ½ a Syn!

The one with the massive flashback

Facebook drives me mad a lot of the time, not mad enough to not live on it constantly of course (It's not that I *want* too, I HAVE to because of my work, well that and I'm far too nosy not to!)  It's full of rubbish a lot of the time, but also lots of little gems, funny things and random links that are a major time suck but so addictive. Every now and again though it throws up a gem, or in this case inspiration for a blog post... Recently I saw a link to an 80's nostalgia website and this particular post was all about the 'Come and Praise' hymn book that surely every 80s kid held in their grubby little hands once upon a time. (I couldn't find the original post, so I'm making my own!) We used this book every morning in assembly throughout my primary school years. They were kept in a box and handed out at the door as we left the classroom to go to the 'Big Hall' for assembly.  There were many very battered copies in the box and a few b

20 Questions - Interview with a 3 year old.

I came across a great idea on Pinterest a while ago where you ask your child a series of questions each year on their birthday staring at age 3 and then you can see how their answers change over the years.  I asked him the questions over a few days as and when he decided to cooperate and answer them - to most of them the answer was first 'I don't know' which is what he responds to everything at the moment even if he knows so I had to try a few times to get an answer out of him! Now he keeps asking me the questions too! 1. What is your favourite colour?   Light blue (this changes each time you ask him!)  2. What is your favourite toy?       Thomas   (the tank engine)  3. What is your favorite fruit?   Grapes 4. What is your favourite tv show?   Thomas  5. What is your favourite thing to eat for lunch?   Ham and salad cream ( sandwiches )  6. What is your favorite outfit?     Boys will be boys (t-shirt, doesn't care which shorts!)  7. Wha

My best Slimming World recipe EVER! - Cheesy Meatball Pasta Bake

Since going back to Slimming World at the start of January I've been making an effort to try some new recipes and keep varying my food every day. Although there is an endless choice when it comes to what you 'can' eat with Slimming World, like anything it's all too easy to fall into a habit of eating the same things day in and day out.  I have many SW cookbooks as well as a folder with lots of recipes that I've collected from the magazine over the years, I've actually made very few though! Last week I decided to try a new one out, and I wish I'd made it sooner! Cheesy Meatball Pasta Bake was a massive hit with the whole family and possibly one of the best main Slimming World meals I've ever made! You need... For the meatballs - 500g extra lean pork mince 6 finely chopped spring onions Dried herbs ( I used about a teaspoon each of basil and oregano) 1tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1 tbsp tomato puree For the sauce - 1 finely chop
