Syn free Chocolate Cake - 7 minutes!

Why is a CHOCOLATE CAKE recipe on a Color and Style website?

Because this website is about how to FEEL GOOD and LOOK GOOD!

I love to eat healthily and I love chocolate cake - so what better way to enjoy without gorging on fat and sugar! 

And presumably most of you like to do the same so a healthy recipe follows the right formula for us all.

As I've got older I find that weight creeps on much more easily so unless I want to adopt a fitness campaign I have to watch what I'm eating.

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

SYN FREE 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.


I use a 7" round flan dish, double up the mixture to make 2 cakes.  Sandwich together with Nutella spread, on top as well if you like - it makes quite a show-stopper for a birthday or any occasion.  (Nutella is ony 1.5 syns for 1 teaspoon)

Bake and present your dessert prettily...

And... now you're here it would be great if you'd like to look around at the COLORS, SHAPES, and STYLES that help you to Style Yourself Confident.
