    I have just made this. Its in the oven as we speak. It was very easy although i have not made the syrup as I had no arrowroot.

    But looks and smells lush.

    Fingers crossed its as yummy as it smells. Don't know what i am going to serve it with though. I shall be good and only have one small....'ish piece :p

    I shall report back when its cooked and cooled and devoured! :)

    I made this to make me feel better and take my mind off work cos i am soooooooper stressed at the mo. Must be better than trying valium.

    I'm not sure it will be pretty enough for photos but we shall see.
    I have just taken it out of the oven and it is cooling. Torture. It smells yummy. :drool:

    It tasted quite nice actually. Not quite as light and fluffy as i would prefer for a sponge cake but not half bad. My hubby loved it.

    I'm going to freeze some pieces and defrost a piece each day for work.

    I am hoping this will stop me reaching for something else bad cos i am struggling at the mo tbh.

    I made this last week during the snowy days when I was craving cake! I didn't have arrowroot either, but made a syrup using squeezed oranges and sweetener and reducing it down. Oh...it was LUSH! The cake is really simple to make and IMO the syrup really makes it. It's more like a dessert cake than a traditional sponge - it's dense, not light and the syrup is great as it really makes it moist and sticky.

    I thought 12 was a bit stingy, so I cut it into 8 instead lol!

    Nice to see someone else liked it too :)

    Log into lifeline online and go to the ‘eat and slim’ section (the green tab) and it’s the featured recipe that comes up – before you click through to the calculator or recipe archive.
    HTH?
