You can still make cakes - there's quite alot of different ones on here.

My mum makes the sw spanish orange cake, but you can change it to make a lemon drizzle too.

Serves: 12
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Syns: 3.5 (all plans)

For the cake
4 eggs, separated
50g/2oz golden caster sugar
5 tbsp artificial sweetener
150g/5oz self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp finely grated orange zest
juice of 2 oranges

For the syrup
zest of 2 oranges, finely grated into long strips
juice of 2 oranges
1 tbsp arrowroot
4 tbsp artificial sweetener

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/Gas 5. Line a 20cm/8in cake tin with non-stick baking parchment.

2. Place the egg yolks, caster sugar, sweetener, self-raising flour, baking powder and orange zest and juice in a bowl and whisk until thick and pale.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until softly peaked then fold them into the egg yolk mixture. Spoon this mixture into the prepared cake tin and cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the cake is risen and firm to the touch. Leave to cool.

4. Meanwhile place all the syrup ingredients in a saucepan with 90ml/3fl oz of water and bring to the boil, whisking constantly. When it starts to thicken, remove from the heat.

5. Drizzle the syrup over the cake and decorate with raspberries and grated orange zest. Cut into wedges to serve.
