    Evening
    Got the bug for baking again and the other half loves my cupcakes but they are so high in fat. I was wondering if anyone had a cupcake recipe that was more SW friendly please?

    Thanks!

    To be honest I think you'll struggle as most of the syns are in the flour and sugar. You can replace sugar with sweetener but can't really get past the syns in the flour.

    no sorry, but the apricot brownies from the new slimming world mag, are lovely. the whole family loves them :D xx

    Chocolate and Apricot Brownies
    Ready in 35 minutes

    4 tbsp artificial sweetener
    60g/2½oz caster sugar

    2. Melt the low fat spread in a saucepan, remove from the heat and stir in the drinking chocolate, sweetener and sugar. Add the eggs and whisk until combined.
    3. Sift in the flour and baking powder and stir well. Mix in the apricots and vanilla extract, then pour into the prepared tin and bake for 18-20 minutes, until just set (it will firm as it cools). While still warm, turn out onto a board and cut into 24 portions.

    I have a recipe that I use - 7 syns (IIRC) for a *big* size chocolate with chocolate chips cupcake. Proper size, proper food, proper taste, no sweeteners. I also have another vanilla cupcake recipe, but can't remember syns for that - it will be similar.

    Let me know if interested (would have to post later when at home), the recipe sounds a bit odd, but they work very well :D.
