Here at Pinch of Nom we’ve been talking about a Slimming World friendly version for a few days now. So here’s our 1 Syn Each Jaffa Cakes recipe.
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 👍
Imagine our surprise when The Great British Bake Offs first technical challenge was Jaffa Cakes!
There are quite a few recipes for Jaffa cakes, but most of them are around 2 syns each, but these are an incredible 1 syn.
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 Jaffa Cakes uses 4 tablespoons of Sukrin and is divided into 12 portions so there is no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
You’ll notice that these 1 Syn Each Jaffa Cakes have a drizzle of chocolate on top to keep the syns down. However you could add some more chocolate and cover the entire top of each one. If you do don’t forget to add the extra syns (they soon add up!!)

What is Sukrin?
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 these 1 Syn Each Jaffa 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.
