Slimming Recipes


Well this cake is only HALF A SYN FOR THE WHOLE CAKE, not that you would eat the whole cake in one go (or you might) but you can make it in under 20 minutes and it is such a simple recipe I doubted it would taste of anything much but was pleasantly surprised. Of course you can use any fruit on this providing it is Syn free but I love raspberries.
