    Yes, thats right 12 syns for the whole cake!
    I was given this recipe in class last night and I've just made it...yummy!! Its better cold than hot, as I thought it tasted a little eggy when still warm - cold, proper sponge!!! :D

    6 eggs
    2oz self raising flour
    couple drops of vanilla essence
    2 tsps baking powder
    6 tbsp granulated sweetner
    Mix the eggs and sweetner and vanilla essence in a large bowl with electric whisk, beat until it triples in volume (about 10 mins)
    Sieve flour and baking powder and fold into mixture.
    Share between two sponge tins and bake at 200C for about 11 mins (could be a little bit longer)

    The filling I chose (because I fancied a victoria sponge style cake)

    4 tsp Hartley's Best damson Jam (All Hartley best flavoured jams are 0.5 per tsp

    Absolutely delicious with a cuppa!

    I cut the cake into 4 and worked it out at 4 syns per wedge - and I mean wedge!!!

    As a big cake fan this sounds great!

    What size tins did everyone use? So we are saying the whole cake is 12 syns so if I ate a quarter wedge that would be 3!!! (minus fillings obv)
