    Guessed that would get you all looking!!!



    But it really IS totally syn free if you use this as your heb choice - you can even eat the whole cake in one day!!!



    Spicy Scan Bran Ginger Cake
    (OK, I can hear the moans!!!)



    5 Scan Bran or Oat Bran (from SW, some H&B or Waitrose)
    2 large carrots (about 150 gms) finely grated or wizzed in a mini chopper
    7 tbsp low calorie sweetener
    3 eggs, beaten
    3 tsp ground ginger
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp ground nutmeg (or 1 tsp ground all-spice)



    [FONT=Arial Black, sans-serif]Method

    1. Pour boiling water over the Scan Bran, leave for 1 minute then drain and mash
    2. Mix the Scan Bran, carrot, sweetener and spices, stirring very thoroughly
    3. Add the beaten eggs, and stir until completely mixed
    4. Tip the mixture into a microwaveable dish – we've now 'standardised' on a Sainsbury's Basics 1litre container, which is approx 18 ½ cm x 13 ½ cm by 5cm deep, and gives excellent results
    5. Microwave on high for about 12 minutes – it should shrink a bit from the sides


    That's it – quick and easy and tasty too!


    I'm sure that others of you can come up with suggestions for different, totally free flavourings. Please do share!!!

    Dont wanna sound like a bore but its only syn free if you use your HeB for the Scan Bran. Remember you have to eat the whole cake in 1 day for it to count as HeB!!! Or half and half your HeB! Mines cooking now lol xx

    iv just had some and its lovely, but theres no way in gods earth you could eat the whole thing in one day. Iv devided mine into 4 and you get a more than genorouse portion. Just had mine with some sweetened quark with vanilla extract in and it was devine. I think id much rather syn the cake and still have my HexB. Its only 5 for the whole cake, so gunna syn 2 today and then 1 the rest of the week. It will be nice to have something to look forward to on a night time. Think id cope better then through the day

    Iv got some more scanbran left so going to make it again with the carrots, but this time add 4tsp coco powder (0.5s per tsp) and almond essence, make it into a chocolate cake. that would be 9 for the whole thing, which between 4 servings is only 2 syns per slice (plus a floating syn lol)
