    Bran Flake Chocolate Cake

    I have just made the below but using 2 options chocolate sachets instead.. It was actually very nice. When I make it next i will add another sachet i think.. Or maybe some coffee.

    I used a 5" plastic tub which cut 4 really nice chunks which made them 4.75 syns each (the whole cake is 19 syns the way I made it)

    Low Syn Chocolate Cake
    Serves: 6
    Syns per serving:
    3 Syns on Green and Original
    Cooking time: 6 minutes
    Preparation time: 15 minutes

    100g bran flakes cereal
    250ml boiling water
    2 eggs
    6 heaped tsp of drinking chocolate
    cup sweetener
    1. Pour the boiling water on to the All Bran in a large bowl and mix well.

    2. Add the eggs, drinking chocolate and sweetener and beat the mixture until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

    3. Put the mixture into a 6 inch round plastic tub or other suitable microwaveable dish, smooth the top with a large spoon or flat knife, and microwave on high for 6 minutes.

    4. Turn the cake out on to a plate, cut into 6 slices and enjoy!

    I heard about this in group yesterday and was hoping the recipe would be here.

    Many thanks, hopefully I can have this one night this week Have been craving a yummy dessert

    Do you know if the syns are higher if you use cocoa powder instead of drinking cocoa?

    I just made a similar version of this but with lower syns!

    The method is the same but I used all bran and instead of 250ml water you only add 180ml and only 2tbsp of cocoa powder, I also cut the sweetner by half and it was still sweet enough. I added a couple of teaspoons of ginger because I find that helps balance the taste of the sweetner.

    Just had some, it's a great substitute for cake and, if you use as your healthy b option, a quarter of this cake is only 1.2 syns
