    Hi Everyone,
    Has anyone made the fat free sponge cake recipe yet? I have just made the sponge and it smells nice but am waiting for it to cool before I make the filling & topping.

    If anyone wants the recipe let me know & I will post it.

    Here you go:

    6 eggs
    2 ounces self raising flour or cocoa powder if you want chocolate cake
    9 tablespoons granulated sweetener
    2 teaspoons orange or vanilla essence (up to you)

    To decorate:
    1 tub quark
    Strawberries (as many or as few as you want)
    2 teaspoons of vanilla or orange essence
    6 Tablespoons Granulated sweetener

    Whick up egg whites until stiff

    In a separtae bowl whisk egg yolks with either the orange or vanilla essence & sweetener, add a 1/4 of the egg white & beat until pale yellow.

    Add the flour gradually & fold into the mix carefully, when done add the rest of the egg whites & fold in.

    Pour onto a swiss roll tin & bake in the over on 180 for about 10 to 12 mins, until golden & firm to the touch.

    Take out of the oven, leave to cool, when cool cut in half.

    Filling & topping:
    Beat the quark with the orange or vanilla essence & sweetener, spread 3/4 on the bottom layer of the cake, slice the strawberries & put them on top of that, put the top of the cake on & use the rest of the filling to top with the rest of the strawberries.

    Hope you like it!

    looks lovely. I might make that at some point. I'd have to use fromage frais for the filling - can't get Quark here.:sigh:

    Hi have just made the Chocolate and Orange Fat Free sponge at it is lovely! I used orange essence in the cake batter, and used 1oz cocoa powder/1oz SR flour.

    As the cake has lots of flavour, I kept the filling simple and just used 0% greek yogurt, but I like the sharp contrast of cake and yogurt!

    Took a photo of a 1 syn piece, to give people an idea of what you get for your syn :D

    Thanks for the recipe Julie - I will try it again, adding chocolate essence in place of the orange, and flavouring the filling with orange instead.

    I made a chocolate cake using 2oz of cocoa and although it was lovely it was a bit strong and didn't rise very well. I think it would have been better if I had used half flour & half cocoa like angie did!

    I did make a lovely filling/topping though:

    Use 2 pots of Aldi virtually fat free strawberry fromage frais as the filling then dissolve 6 level tsp reduced sugar seedless rasberry jam (3 sins) with 6 tsp boiling water and spoon onto a punnet of rasberries. Stir until all berries are covered in the syrup then spoon onto the top of the cake. ​

    If you make the chocolate cake with 1/2 cocoa and 1/2 self raising flour it is lovely. Add a tub of quark for moistness and some chocolate chips and its even better!

    Also I have tried lemon flavour and that is fab too!

    cocoa is 4.5 per 28g/ounce

    Jezebel - have you tried sweetening yogurt with sweetner? it can take the 'yogurtyness' away and trick the mind into believing it is cream - perhaps its worth a try it next time you have some yog in the house?
