Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange aftertaste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this 1.5 Syn a Slice Chocolate & Beetroot Cake.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

We also use Sukrin Icing which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to icing sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Icing over on Amazon UK too.

Synning the sweetener in this 1.5 Syn a Slice Chocolate & Beetroot Cake

As you will probably know last year Slimming World brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. This means that:

Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend you count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.

The recipe for this 1.5 Syn a Slice Chocolate & Beetroot Cake uses 3.5 (6.5 including the optional icing) tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 8 portions. That’s less than a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

INSTRUCTIONS
For the Cake
  1. Finely grate the beetroot and set aside. Separate the egg whites from the yolks
  2. Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, sweetener, egg yolks, grated beetroot and the beetroot juice
  3. In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks
  4. Gently fold the egg whites into the flour and egg yolk mixture, until they are mixed evenly
  5. Pour the mixture into a loaf tin (I lined the bottom with baking parchment and gave it a quick spray with Frylight just in case)
  6. Bake for 25 minutes at 180ºC until golden brown or until the knife comes out clean. Don't be tempted to check it before 25 minutes or the cake will sink!
  7. Turn the heat down to 150ºC and bake for another 10 minutes
  8. Leave to cool, and then cut into 8 equal slices
  9. Serve on its own or drizzled with chocolate icing
For the Icing
  1. Simply mix the 3 tbsp of Nativa Icing Mix with the Choc Shot and water then drizzle over the cake to serve

  1. Tastes quite good but could be more chocolatey, I only put in 10 g of sweetener as I don’t like cakes very sweet . Overall very edible .
