    I love the sugar blend splenda, taste much better than normal sweetener because of the sugar content and obviously you dont need as much as normal sugar.

    I also prefer to use splenda as it has no aspartame.

    You can get a white sugar blend splenda here now too, it is great in cakes.

    I recently made a fruit and spice scan bran cake. Recipe is on my blog. Will copy and paste it over here for you. It was so yummy and the best bit was. I couldnt taste the scan bran. lol

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    (before going in oven) (out of the oven)
    [​IMG]
    serves 4-6
    11.5 syns for the entire cake on Green, Red or Extra Easy
    Ingredients
    5 scan bran (5 syns)
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup of vanilla yoghurt (fat free)
    1 tsp of cinnamon
    1/2 tsp of all spice
    zest of a lemon
    28g of sultanas (4 syns)
    1 tsp of baking powder (0.5 syns)
    2 tablespoons of brown sugar blend Splenda (2 syns)
    buttery flavour Frylight or Pam spray

    Method
    Preheat oven to 200c or 400f
    Grease a ovenproof round cake tin with some non stick spray
    In a dish, soak the scan bran in some boiling hot water to soften.
    Add scan bran to a large bowl.
    Add the cinnamon, all spice, baking powder and brown sugar blend splenda.
    Separate the yolks from the eggs into a small bowl. Set the egg whites aside
    Add the yoghurt, vanilla extract and lemon zest to the egg yolks and whisk.
    Add this mixture into the scan bran.
    Spray a couple of sprays of buttery frylight or pam into the mixture
    Add the sultanas and mix thoroughly.
    Whisks your eggs whites into meringue peaks, and fold them into the scan bran mixture.
    Pour the cake mixture into your greased cake tin, and bake in the oven for approx 30-40mins, a toothpick entered into the centre of the cake should come out clean. But you don’t want the cake to dry out too much, it should still be nice and moist in the middle.
    Serve with 4 tablespoons of light squirty cream for an extra 1 syn

    if you wanted you could also use some extra brown sugar blend and sprinkle some on top, the cake is nice and moist and was a good substitue to bread and butter pudding. :p

    Just remember to count the brown spenda from your syns as it is not syn free. Silverspoon do a brown sweetener that is syn free - I like it sprinkled on my porridge!

    Yeah I realised its not free. I did a shop search today, and found it in Home Bargains for 79p. I got so excited I gave my partner a heart attack! LOL!!!! I bought three packs.

    Whats mad is I found this on Ebay, and they were selling it for £3.49! plus huge postage costs :-O

    Wow Britmum my mouth is watering!! Your photos are ace, do you have a super cool camera?

    I've looked at your site and thought you might want to add some of your photos to foodgawker | feast your eyes - it's a really nice site.

    I have looked all over for the brown sugar blend - different branches of Asda, Saino's, Tesco and Morrison's. Anyone got any hot leads??!!??!

    Thanks :)

    Splenda no longer sell it in the UK - that's why you can't find it any more although you can sometimes find it in bargain shops that sell end of lines etc.

    Keep checking homebargains because they do go out of stock, but they tend to get it back in.

    Unfortunately, unless Splenda change their stance, we wont be able to buy Brown Sugar blend Splenda on a reliable basis in the UK. I emailed them a while back and got this response:

    "
    Thank you for your recent E-Mail to the SPLENDA® Information Service.
    Unfortunately, SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend was discontinued from the UK and Irish markets at the end of 2009, due to a lack of demand.
    We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
    Should you require any further assistance in future, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
    Kind regards,
    The SPLENDA® Team"

    You might be lucky enough to pick some end of line bargains in places as mentioned earlier in this thread - there are no Home bargains/B&M/Quality Save in my part of the world - I've tried poundland with no luck, so I'm guessing it aint gonna happen.

    Just wish slimming world would realise this and stop taunting us with recipes on their website that we cant possibly make!!
