    soo...i have just spent ages farting around making the lemon chick pea cake - the one with the lemon quark topping - looked gorgeous..in the picture..
    i have made it ...smelt good, looked really good - nice colour, made the topping - lush, it looks so pretty..cant wait to try a piece, so i do.....
    YUKKY YUKKY YUKKY!!! it just tastes of chickpeas with sugar and lemon on them...i dunno if im doing it wrong or what??!!
    so anyway ive given up, and just eaten a massive bag of grapes instead!!
    Can anyone suggest a nice cake recipe (low syns or syn free) that actually tastes nice...?? i tried the cous cous cake and that was rotten too!! lol
    maybe im just too fussy...!!

    If you haven't tried it yet, give a Scan Bran cake a go! They're certainly NOT to everybody's taste - mine is the chocolate and raspberry one though!!!

    If you can get online (if you can't someone will be able to) there is a recipe for a chocolate & cherry roulade, someone brought this to our taster last night but she changed the cherry for strawberry & MY GOD it was so nice, didn't taste like a 'diet cake' at all - this one is now on my list of things to make

    I have made stacey's cake a few times now and it's fab! I am thinking of making it again tonight. will have to look up the quark topping you mentioned - i need to use a tub I have in the fridge.

    I also made the syn free muffins - but I didn't like them and they were quickly binned. :sigh:

    I found the lemon chickpea cake really nice and didn't taste of chickpeas at all. I thoroughly washed and drained them and put all the ingredients into a blender and it seriously just tasted of lemon cake. I was amazed.

    I am going to make Stacey's lemon cake when my chocolate scan bran cake is all gone :p

    It may have been posted before so please forgive me as I'm new to the board but in relation to Chickpea cake try:

    Apricot and almond cake

    1 tin chickpeas drained and rinsed well
    4 tblsp splenda
    3 eggs
    1 tsp baking powder (1/2 syn)
    Good glub of almond flavouring
    72g chopped dried apricots (HEB)

    Mix all the ingredients together (ex apricots) with / in a blender till totalled!!
    Stir through chopped apricots
    Pop into a 1 lb loaf tin lined for 25 mins on 180.
    Brilliant on green for HEB and 1/2 syn whole cake. Tastes a bit like Battenburg. Lemme see if I can get a pic:

    Remember the cous-cous and chick pea cakes are now quite high syns now as SW has recalculated them...... oh dear I hear you cry. i loved my fruit cous-cous cake with a cuppa. Not anymore.

    Oh the lemon cake is lovely, and the scranbran choccy one is great too!
