BAKED BLACKBERRY CHEESE CAKE

I have been rummaging through my cookbooks and I stumbled across a section called low-fat cakes and bakes. This is delicious and at only 7 syns for the whole cake ( 0.875 syns a slice ( 1.75 for 2 pieces - accurately measured - rounded up would be 2 i guess) . I am sure for a few more syns it would be worth crushing up digestives to make a base:)

Serves 8 - preheat oven to 150 C fan/ 180 C / 350 F/ Gas 4.

Spray frylight to coat a 7" sandwich tin

6oz low fat natural cottage cheese
5oz fat free natural yogurt
1 tblsp plain wholemeal flour (3 syns)
5 tsp silverspoon light granulated sugar (2.5 syns)
1 egg
1 egg White
Finely grated rind and juice of 1/2 lemon
169.5g blackberries (1.5 syns)
Some extra blackberries to serve

Place cottage cheese in a food processor and blitz til smooth.
Add yogurt, flour, sugar, egg and egg White and blitz.
Pour into a bowl and add lemon juice and rind and blackberries. Stir until mixed well
Pour into tin
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until it is just set.
Turn off oven and leave for a further 30 minutes
Run a palette knife around the edge and turn out cheesecake ( I push down using a large tin to balance on)
Decorate with fresh blackcurrants and serve.
Yum

CINNAMON SNAPS

Found a recipe and have adapted it, it still needs perfecting but tastes crunchy and yummy:

50g I can't believe it's not butter light (8.9 syns)
4g splenda
50g plain flour (10 syns)
1 tsp cinnamon

Put oven on 180 degrees ( mine is a fan oven)
Put greaseproof paper on a baking tray

Cream butter and sweetener until creamy.
Sift flour and cinnamon together and add to mixture. Mix until combined.
You should get a very very soft gloopy dough.
Using a teaspoon, blob hazelnut sized pieces onto the baking paper with large space around .
Squash the blobs down until thinly spread into a large disc. I made 20.

Mine should have been spread thinner!!

Bake for 8-10 mins.
Leave to cool .

See what you think.

CHOCOLATE PROFITEROLES

Just 1.5 SYNS each and it makes 34 profiteroles.

They have just cooked so the cream and chocolate have yet to be used. This is my 2nd attempt to put the recipe on- my phone crashed as I tried to upload every picture. I have step by step pictures, but I will type the recipe first as I have just lost it all :-(

INGREDIENTS

CHOUX PASTRY
60g plain flour
1/2 tsp splenda
50g I can't believe it's not butter
2 eggs, beaten
150ml cold water

FILLING
Anchor Lite Squirty Cream 3g per profiterole

CHOCOLATE SAUCE
80g Dark Cooks Chocolate (green & blacks ) or Milk Chocolate if you prefer a sweeter chocolate taste
7-10. Tblsp water
Sweetener to taste unless a bitter chocolate taste is preferred

PREHEAT OVEN TO 170 fan/ 200C/400F/GM6

Using 3 baking trays, cut baking paper to fit each. Wet each baking paper sheet and lightly tap to remove excess moisture.

Take a large sheet of baking paper and fold in half . Open the sheet and sift the flour on top and sprinkle on the sweetener.

Put the water and butter into a medium sized saucepan and place on a medium heat. Stir using a wooden spoon. Once the butter has melted and it just starts to boil, remove immediately . Then immediately pour in all the flour whilst beating with an electric whisk and it's dough beaters (a wooden spoon can be used but takes longer). Beat until there is a smooth ball of paste that leaves the edges of the saucepan clean. This takes under a minute.

Whilst beating slowly pour in the beaten eggs, mixing well until a glossy smooth paste forms.

Place teaspoon sized amounts on the prepared baking sheets 1" apart and bake for 5-10 minutes.

Turn the oven up to 190 fan/220C/425F/GM7 and bake for a further 15-20 minutes or until light, crisp & golden.

Remove from oven and using a cocktail stick pierce each one to allow the steam to escape and cool.

When ready to eat fill direct with 3g aerosol cream. They only take about 3g. So weigh before and after. If filled too early the cream will liquify so only fill when about to eat them. Then top with chocolate sauce.

Melt chocolate in a Bain Marie. Then slowly stir in the water until a more fluid consistency is reached. This will thicken at first, but keep stirring and adding water as it will loosen . Pour over profiteroles (1tblsp for 4-5 profiteroles)

Make up jelly per instructions and allow to cool slightly
Pour a very small amount over sponge fingers ( if too much is used fingers will float)
Put in fridge to set which shouldnt take long
Once set pour rest of jelly mixture on top

Once set arrange sliced strawberries on top

Now to make the 'custard' - soak the leaves of gelatine in 1 tblsp water for about 5 mins, then squeeze excess water out. Place the gelatine in a small saucepan and add 2 tblsp of water and heat until gelatine dissolves
Remove from heat and combine with the vanilla yogurt and 1 tblsp sweetener
Spread over strawberry layer and return to fridge to set

Once set combine the quark, vanilla essence and sweetener to taste . Then either spread or pipe over the top

142g Plain Flour
42g I Can't Believe Its Not Butter Light
1 Tblsp Milk (from HEA) or water
4 Tblsp Splenda
1 Pot Toffee Muller

Frylight and More Splenda

Rub margarine in to resemble very fine breadcrumbs
Add milk (or water) , splenda & yogurt and combine to make a sticky dough

Bake for 10 mins.

Reduce oven to 160 Fan 190C

Remove from oven and lift off baking paper with biscuit

Using a 6cm cutter cut out shapes. Push any residual bits together in the cutter.

Place biscuits onto the baking tray (already lined) and spray with frylight and sprinkle with sweetener and respray with frylight

Try other Mullers for different flavoured biscuits.
