CAPSULE WARDROBE PLANS for Spring/Summer 2017

Syn free Chocolate Cake!

You may wonder why a chocolate cake recipe is on a Color and Style website!

Well I love chocolate cake and I love the Slimming World way of eating. And.... this is the only place I've got to host the recipe. So OK nothing in it for me, but I hope you enjoy the cake.

I like my food and you know us Brits we need something for 4 o'clock tea-time - and what's better than a CHOCOLATE CAKE?

Syn Free Chocolate Cake

400g tin drained chickpeas (yes chickpeas bizarre!)
3 eggs whisked
1 tbsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp golden syrup or maple syrup
28g cocoa powder
1 cup sweetener
1 tsp baking powder

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth, pour into greased microwave bowl. Cook on high for about 7 mins. 

Slimming World - well OK count 1 syn for the syrup and 1 syn for the cocoa, 0.5 for the baking powder - i.e. that's 2.5 syns for the whole cake - I can live with that.

There's some discrepancy between Consultants over whether the chickpeas should be synned or not, but to me, it's like eating a portion of chickpeas with my lunch and it keeps me going until dinner time.
