    I have amended the low-fat sponge cake a little to make lemon fairy cakes - they work out as 1/2 a sin each and are lovely.


    Lemon Fairy Cakes (½ sin each)


    6 eggs
    2 ounces self raising flour (9 sins)
    9 tablespoons granulated sweetener
    2 teaspoons lemon essence
    Rind of 2 lemons
    Juice of 1 lemon

    Whisk up egg whites until stiff

    In a separate bowl whisk egg yolks with either the lemon essence, lemon juice & sweetener, add a 1/4 of the egg white & beat until pale yellow.


    Add the flour and lemon rinf gradually & fold into the mix carefully, when done add the rest of the egg whites & fold in.


    Split between 18 muffin cases (in baking tins) & bake in the over on 180 for about 10 to 12 mins, until golden & firm to the touch.


    Take out of the oven and leave to cool.


    For topping:
    ½ tub quark
    1 teaspoon of lemon essence
    5 tablespoons granulated sweetener
    Juice of 1 lemon

    Beat the quark with the lemon essence, lemon juice & sweetener, when ready to serve top each cake with a spoon of the topping.

    Going to try to make chocolate ones tommorrow by swapping 1/2 the flour for cocoa and the lemon essence for vanilla essence!

    The chocolate ones were lovely - I also added a pot of quark to the recipe to make it moister and some chocolate chips. I took these to class last night and everyone went mad for them!

    Holly - Can I ask something? When did you add the pot of quark to the recipe & did you take anything out to add the quark? I fancy making this again but can only follow a recipe I have been given I am not very good at adapting things!
