Christmas Week…

Well, I got through Christmas week fairly well, which I am happy about! I ate lots, but not lots of crap, and I managed to lose 1 lb!! Wooooo!! I hope that I can get though New Year with the same mentality!

Sorry for the short and sweet post, I have a lot of housework to get through before New Years Eve… boring facts of real life!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and all have a Happy New Year! Xx

Low Syn Christmas Cupcakes…

Hi All 🙂

So sorry I haven’t blogged in what feels like forever… I haven’t managed to find the time much lately and also, I haven’t felt like I’ve been doing very well with Slimming World until the last week or so, so I had no motivation… That said, I am back with a vengeance 🙂 (even though I’m definitely going to show a gain tonight at group – I’m far too into the Christmas Spirit!!)

Tonight at group is our Christmas Party and we are all asked to bring something low syn for the table. Since I am fairly new to this ‘cooking’ malarkey  I didn’t want to take something that would be revolting, so I went with what I know… CUPCAKES!! I found a recipe online for Slimming World cupcakes that are only 2.5 syns each (perfect) so I am sharing it with you! On the website, they were pink and only had a half strawberry on top… but I went a little festive with them! Enjoy…

Strawberry Santa Hat Cupcakes

How long does it take? 10 minutes prep and 15 – 20 minutes cooking time

How many syns? 2.5 – 3 syns per cake (depending on size)

What do I need? (These quantities make 12 – 16 cakes, depending on size)
– 3 Eggs
– 60g of Low Fat Spread
– 8 tbsp of Artificial Sweetener
– 110g of Self Raising Flour
– Vanilla Essence (a few drops)
– 1/2 tsp of Strawberry Flavouring

For the Decoration:
– Icing Sugar
– Strawberries

What do I do?

Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4 and lay out paper cases in a cake tin.
Whisk together the eggs, low fat spread and sweetener, then sieve the flour and fold it into the mixture, adding the vanilla essence and the strawberry flavouring.

Spoon into the paper cases and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack.

Mix a few drops of water with the icing sugar, and spoon on the cakes. Place the strawberries on to the cakes and add a little more icing on the tip to make it look like a Santa Hat.

Then… ENJOY THEM 🙂
