    Super Simple Extra Easy Speedy Syn-Free Carrot Cake

    I make this about three times a week and eat half for breakfast. :-) It's just one B and no syns for the entire thing. AAAAAND it includes 1/3 superfree right there in the cake. If this isn't the ultimate SW recipe, I'll eat a scan bran straight from the packet.

    INGREDIENTS

    • 5 scan bran or 55g scan bran sprinkles
    • About 1 1/2 to 2 cups grated carrot
    • two eggs
    • about 1 cup powdered sweetener
    • half teaspoon cinnamon
    • pinch salt
    • few drops vanilla essence


    METHOD

    1. Soften your scan bran (in a microwavable mixing bowl) with a some hot water. Just enough to soften it - this is a moist cake and the less water you can do this with the better - scan bran sprinkles work best.
    2. Mix in the eggs, cinnamon, salt and vanilla. Mix really thoroughly.
    3. Mix in the sweetener.
    4. Mix in the carrot.
    5. Scrape off the sides of the bowl with a spatula and smooth the mixture down flat.
    6. Bung in the microwave and cook on full power for about 7 minutes (1000w microwave)

    To make it even better, you can add baking powder and a squirt of lemon juice, and some raisins. But then you'll need to count the syns.

    My Goals

    Size 24 trousers fit
    Size 24/52 trousers loose

    Size 22/50
    Size 40 G-Stars fit
    Next size 20 coat AND Liefs Bo 48 jeans fit
    Size 18 at Monsoon
    Size 18 everywhere (Monsoon are so generous!)
    Size 16 at anywhere - I can shop where I like!

    Mostly maintained for a year at size 20. Aiming for size 18 in 2013.

    Personally I find that the scan bran cakes actually work better in the microwave than the oven.

    It is. I'll eat half for breakfast, and have an Alpen Light as a snack later. Then eat the other half the next day.

    Pete's First Attempt at a Cake!

    Here's my first effort!.....


    Peteís Scan Bran Carrot Cake


    Syn free

    Ingredients

    5 scan bran
    300g/3 medium size carrots
    1 egg
    3 Tbsp sweetener
    Ĺ tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 tsp nutmeg
    Pinch salt
    Zest from 1 lemon

    Method

    Break the scan bran into a mixing bowl and add boiling water, a bit at a time to soften them, mash into a smooth mix.

    Grate the peeled carrots, drain as much liquid out of them as possible, and then place in a towel and wring out any remaining liquid. Add to mixing bowl along with the egg, sweetener and spices & lemon zest, mix well.

    Preheat the oven to 180c and prepare a loaf tin, line with greaseproof paper cut to fit, spray with fry light.

    Place on the middle shelf for 30 mins, insert a metal skewer into the middle of the cake and when you pull it out and it comes out clean, the cake is done.

    Remove from the tin and allow to cool on a wire rack.

    Doesn't look too good but boy! did it taste nice, moves faster that an F1 car!!

    This is cooking in the oven as I type.

    Do I have too much carrot in it?

    61 days until Xmas.

    I used a smaller loaf tin! I have made it again and cooked it in a standard size tin and it came out about 1" high!will try again to see if I can make one bigger, does separating the egg yokes help to make it rise?

    I do mine in a amall loaf tin. They never rise like a proper cake but whipping up your whites then folding them in will certainly give it a boost. Can never be bothered to do that myself so let us know how much of a difference it makes.
