    Hi guys, sorry for posting on here, I dunno if it's the right place, but I couldn't find a recipe request board.

    My friends work does Cake Friday and it's his turn to take cake in, I'm making a normal cake for him to take but he started Atkins last week and I wondered if there were any cake recipes so that I could make him his own cake too and he isn't left out?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't do atkins so I don't know much so thought I best come and ask the people who know what they are talking about :)

    Thanks in advance. x

    Hi yes you can get the bars in Boots not sure about H&B but you can also get them in Tesco.
    I have an almond sponge recipe in my diary thread I'll find it and copy and paste for you it's easy enough to make and tastes good and although maybe not ideal for induction it's not too carby!

    It is a nice recipe I make muffins from it as easier to portion control! It's from Neris and India's cookbook it's good and worth getting think it's about a fiver off Amazon. I nuke in the micro after letting them cool and have it with some cream! Also seems to freeze well.

    Hey Vicky if you make 6 muffins (or 6 slices I guess) then it each portion has 2g carbs - yum! x

    Ickle - I'd let your friend make his own cake if I were you. It's the only way they learn. :D
