    6 syn black forest roulade 1 syn per portion

    For the cake
    5 large eggs
    40g reduced fat cocoa (tesco’s is 6 syns) if you use diff cocoa the syns may be more
    6 heaped dessertspoons of sweetener
    for the filling
    a few good handfuls of frozen cherries
    2 dessertspoons of sweetener
    1x 0%fat activea cherry yog (do not use a muller as its too runny)
    ½ a tub of quark

    set oven to 150 c

    separate 4 of the eggs and whisk up the egg whites to stiff peaks
    in another bowl whisk the yolks with 6 desertspoons of sweetener until pale add the 40g of cocoa and the remaining whole egg and whisk until smooth and creamy

    slowly fold in the egg whites to the choc mix until incorporated

    pour into a small lined roulade tin and bake in the oven for approx 20 min (until springy to touch

    remove from oven and cover with a tea towel so it doesn’t dry out (makes it easier to roll)

    mix yog and quark with remaining sweetener

    ok for the cake building you can either half the sponge and fill like a Victoria sponge or be adventurous and attempt rolling it

    spread the sponge with yog sprinkle on the cherries and roll using the tea towel to help you

    enjoy

    and don’t worry if the lot accidently gets eaten “its only 6 syns”

    This sounds like a nice recipe, I am going to give it a go - the only problem I get with quark is that it sometimes splits! Think it is because I am doing it at a too high heat though!

    I'm a recent convert to Quark :)

    My favourites are:

    a simple topping for fruit etc when mixed with sweetener
    Mixed with lime juice and sweetener for a kind of key lime thing
    mixed with small amount of blue cheese (synned) and felt a few hours for the taste to take on, use as a pasta sauce, or a dip for veggie sticks, or as a stuffing for chicken breasts, or slacken with some milk and heat through gently for a lovely sauce for pork chops or something
    Mixed with marmite to spread on toast or crispbreads :)

    Mmm, I just tried Quark for the first time and I liked it!! I boiled pasta, added frozen peas and chopped up ham, once cooked stirred in some quark and it tastes fab!! Definitely want to try out some more quark recipes!
