    OMG, Ive just made it, and am eating it now, it's delish! Ive used the scan bran as a HEXB, so its only 2 syns! Ive eaten half of it already. For anyone who doesn't have the recipe, this is the one I used.

    Chocolate Cake

    4 ½ syns total. If using scanbran as healthy extra b choice count as 2 syns

    5 scan bran – 2 ½ syns or 1 ‘b’ choice
    3 beaten eggs – free
    Chocolate options-2 syns
    Orange essence 1 cap full-optional
    1/4 mug sweetener – free

    Method

    Mash and moisten scan bran with boiling water. Whisk egg whites separately. Add all the other ingredients, and then fold in egg whites,

    Then put mixture into bowl. Place in the microwave on high for 5 mins.

    Serve when cooled down, with feet up in front of the telly and away from the kids.

    You can replace the orange essence with vanilla and use ooh la vanilla option. Works well with any flavour.


    I used vanillia essence, only because Tesco didn't have orange. I think orange would be lovely though too.

    Hi Donna,
    Does this go hard like a cake? I tried the Weetabix one and it was a disaster for me, lol! Do you just use egg whites, not the yolk too? xx

    I put the yolks in too, but seperate from the whites, I put the whites in last, and (kinda) folded them in. It's not at all hard, very spongy indeed. I put mine on a cooling rack, as it appears a bit wet once coming out of the microwave.

    i do it differently to this.
    I use 2x highlights which is 4 syns and a tbsp of golden syrup which is 2 syns.
    I have half the cake at a time and it works out 3 syns + hexb. Its much more chocolatey and sweet this way, worth the syns

    I have just made it and its lovely. The only thing I would change is to add 2 sachets, but thats just personal preference. I made mine with the new chocolate and fudge highlights and vanilla essence, then sprinkled it with cinnammon when it came out of the microwave. Here is a pic!:-
