    its like ryvita gem you buy it at class a packet of 10 is just over a pound i think. there're diff recipes i think but this is what i normally do-

    5 scan bran
    2 sachets of cadburys highlights
    2 eggs
    2 heaped tbsp sweetner
    1 tbsp golden syrup...

    put scan bran in a casserol dish poor over some boiling water to soak them. With a fork mash it all up mix in all ingredients and cook in a microwave for 6 minutes. it works out the whole thing i a hexb + 6 syns. I only have half the cake at a time tho so its only 3 syns :)

    For those who don't go to class and want to buy scan bran.....
    I saw this in Waitrose last week (to my surprise!) and you can buy it in Holland and Barratt although it is more expensive. It was £1.29 in Waitrose.

    I have tried the recipes using scan bran but now use allbran or (supermarket make) and find its tastes great and a lot cheaper in the long run, I use proper cocoa and it gives it a real chocolate taste and no different in syns.

    I make mine this way.
    4 scan brans
    1 weetabix
    3 eggs
    1/2 cup sweetener
    1/4 tsp mixed spice
    Grated Carrot
    1 tbsp mincemeat (fruit) 2 syns
    Soak scan bran in a little hot water to soften, crumble in weetabix, add other ingredients, mix well and pour into loaf tin that has been sprayed with frylight. Cook in oven 170c for 25-30 mins.
    1 hexb and 2 syns for whole cake.
