    Ooh, I had some of this at my friends last week except hers wasn't a SW one. It was bloody lovely!

    How about posting it on here and seeing if we can work it out.

    Slimming World Extra Easy
    50g bitter cocoa powder
    180g plain flour
    1½tsp baking powder
    Pinch of salt
    250g caster sugar
    300g cooked fresh beetroot
    3 eggs
    200ml corn oil
    1tsp vanilla extract

    Heat the oven to 180C/Gas mark 4. Butter and flour an 18cm (7in) round or square cake tin.

    Sift the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Mix in the sugar and set aside.

    Purée the beetroot in a food processor. Add the eggs, one at a time, then add the corn oil and vanilla and beat until smooth.

    Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour the beetroot mixture into the well. Lightly mix, using a rubber spatula, and pour into the prepared cake tin.

    Bake for 40 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. It won’t rise a great deal and the top may crack a bit. Allow to cool a little before removing from the tin, then leave to cool completely on a wire rack. To serve, dust the cake with icing sugar or bitter cocoa powder, and cut into generous slices.

    I've messaged her to get her recipe to see if it's the same one. I think hers is raw beetroot grated and I don't think she said it had oil in.

    That one you've posted looks like high syn to me but then I could be wrong.

    1 x B Choice and 7 Syns
    or 9½ Syns for whole Cake

    Ingredients:-
    5 Oat or Scan Bran (B Choice or 2½ Syns)
    2 boiled Beetroots, grated
    1 tablespoon Golden Syrup (2 Syns)
    5 tablespoons Artificial Sweetener
    1-2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder (5 Syns)
    2 Eggs

    Soak the Scan Bran in enough boiling water to mash them up and then add all the other ingredients and mix well
    Line a quiche dish with a silicon paper cake liner and pour the mixture in
    Microwave on full power for 7 minutes (850 watt)
    Turn out on to a wire rack immediately and allow to cool

    I wouldnt syn the beetroot, I mean you wouldnt syn in in a risotto would you?

    Plus theres no syn value for its anyway as its a superfree and not a free-but-synnable-on-one-of-the-plans- free.
