    This is a SW Carrot cake. I got the recipe from Tracey on the MSE Forum. The whole cake is 5 syns.

    SW carrot cake

    Cake
    125g quark
    100g grated carrot
    28g smash
    9g sweetener
    3 eggs
    2 tbsp mincemeat
    4 tsps. mixed spice
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp orange flavouring (I used orange flavoured water from Mr T baking section as couldn't find orange essence)

    Topping
    2 tbsp. sweetener
    125g quark
    1 tsp orange flavouring

    Mix all the cake ingredients together. Spray a 7" dish with frylight and put the cake mixture in there and microwave on full power for about 8-10 minutes. Just keep checking, the cake shouldn't have any liquid left on the top and it should be springy to the touch. When cooked turn the cake out and cool on a cooling rack.

    While the cake is cooling mix together the topping ingredients and keep in the fridge. When the cake is cool spread the topping on and cut into 5 slices. Each slice works out as 1 syn each.

    I didn't think the orange flavour did anything for the cake and would leave out next time.

    Just took one of these out of the microwave, looks good, will try and post a pic once I've put the 'icing' on the top. Only thing I'm not sure about is the mixed spice - I didn't have any so made my own concoction with allspice, ginger and cinnamon. Think the cloves in the allspice smell really strong!

    here it is - just had a slice and it's not bad at all. As I suspected the allspice was a wrong choice, but def going to make again, minus the clove flavour! And this one will still get eaten. Great recipe, thank youx

    Scan Bran Cake - 9 syns if not using the scanbran as your HEX

    5 Scanbran - HEXB or 5 syns

    Mullerlight Yogurt ( any flavour)

    2 eggs

    sweetener(as much as required about 4 tbsps)

    Sunmaid raisins (2 boxes - 2 syns per box)

    Place scanbran in a bowl and pour boiling water over to soften, drain after a few seconds
    Mash the scanbran and then add the 2 eggs, the yogurt and the sweetener I also add 2 boxes of sunmaid raisins

    whisk together and pour into a plastic container ( the type you get from a takeaway) pop in the microwave for 8.5 minutes and remove then allow to cool

    I cover mine with a mix of total yogurt and vanilla or mint extract and place in the fridge cut into slices of your choice. I have mine with fruit and/or a yogurt makes a nice brekki or a dessert for low syns
