Here’s another variation of our Slimming World friendly 1.5 Syn Chocolate and Orange cake. This time it’s 1.5 Syn a Slice Chocolate & Beetroot Cake
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
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.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
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.
