As some of you may know everyone here at Pinch of Nom had been talking about Jaffa Cakes for a while. We’d decided to post a recipe, then on the very day we were writing up our recipe the Great British Bakeoff featured them in their first technical challenge of the series.

This was a happy coincidence for us, and it seemed to spark a Jaffa Cake frenzy! Everyone was talking about them.

So, always looking for a bit of variety we thought what other flavours could we try, and the 1 Syn Each ‘Raffa’ Cakes were born.

As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.

Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members 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 Syn Each ‘Raffa’ Cakes uses 4 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 12 portions. That’s way less than half a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

So what is a ‘Raffa Cake’ I hear you ask? Well it’s a Jaffa Cake but with raspberry not orange of course!

You’ll notice that these 1 Syn Each ‘Raffa’ Cakes only have a drizzle of chocolate on the top (it helps to keep the syn value down) so you may be concerned that the jelly will slip right off. Well, from experience, it doesn’t.

The buns are not a slippery surface so unless you plan on eating them upside down, you will be just fine!

What is Sukrin?

We use Sukrin Gold which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Gold over onAmazon UK.

Sukrin Gold doesn’t have that strange after taste 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 Syn Each ‘Raffa’ Cakes.

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.


You can get the silicone muffin moulds from Amazon too

INGREDIENTS
Please don't take a screenshot. These recipes are updated often!

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Make up half the Raspberry Jelly using 1/4 pint of water
  2. Pour the jelly equally into 12 round silicone moulds, then put them in the fridge to set
  3. While you're waiting for the jelly to set put the eggs and Sukrin Gold into a clean bowl and whisk until the 'ribbon stage' is reached. This is when the mixture has thickened so that when you lift the whisk out it leaves a trail on the surface for a couple of seconds. You should probably use an electric whisk for this!
  4. Fold in the sifted flour and vanilla extract
  5. Spray 12 muffin moulds with some Frylight and divide the sponge mix equally between them
  6. Bake at 180°C for 10 minutes, until the sponges are a light golden colour
  7. When they are cool place the set jelly on top of the sponges
  8. Melt the chocolate in the microwave (it doesn't take long so keep checking on it) then put it into a disposable piping bag and snip a small hole in the end
  9. Drizzle the chocolate evenly over the Raffa Cakes and allow to set

    1. Hi Dee
      If you’ve clicked on a Pinch of Nom recipe link, you’ll need to scroll right to the bottom of the page. You’ll find all the information you need there, including ingredients and step-by-step instructions.

    1. Hi Claire
      Some sweeteners vary, so it may be best to check the conversion rate of your specific sweetener to sugar. You will probably find conversion info either on the website of whichever sweetener you are using or on the packaging. Sukrin is a 1:1 ratio so it’s easy to convert, but other sweeteners may vary.

  1. Could you use blitzed porridge oats instead of flour (measured as your HEB)? Similar to how you make baked oats or sweet waffles xxx

    1. Hi Victoria
      You could try, but using blitzed oats won’t give you the light sponge texture required. Hope that helps.
