What is Sukrin?

Sukrin make a range of sugar substitutes, that are all natural, that are  free from calories and carbohydrates. And most importantly for us they don’t have that nasty aftertaste and they are syn free.

2 Syn Rich Chocolate Cake With Salted Caramel Cream | Slimming World

They do a granulated sugar replacement, a brown sugar replacement and an icing sugar replacement. You can use them all just as you would their ‘normal’ counterparts and since discovering Sukrin we won’t use anything else.

Sukrin 1 is the granulated sweetener and can be found on Amazon

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.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Coconut or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this 2 Syn Rich Chocolate Cake With Salted Caramel Cream recipe.

    1. Hi Sue – we’d recommend a shallow cake din approx 6 inches in diameter. This won’t suit going in a loaf tin unlike our other cakes. Hope this helps!

  1. This looks fantastic, just a quick question though. Are the syns just in the cocoa powder? If they are then 60g cocoa is only 10.8 syns according to the online calculator, so wouldn’t these be less than 1 syn each?

  2. Ive just joined slimming world and im trying to figure out the ways. i have a terrible sweet tooth and came across this brownie but im not very good on the computer. could someone please send me the recipe and instructions on the slated caramel icing. please.
    thankyou Donna

  3. Hello, love your recipes! Can the sukrin be replaced with regular sweetener? I’d love to make these today but sukrin will take a few days to arrive

  4. Made these for my husband today as a low syn treat he loved them they were nice and chocolatey with a nice salted caramel cream. Il definatley be making them for him again soon .

    1. When these changes happened we contacted Slimming World to confirm what the changes means.
      We were told that 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.
      This recipe uses 70g of Sukrin plus 1 extra tbsp (1 tablespoon = approx 15g) so that’s about 5.5 tbsp of sweetener in total and is divided into 6 portions. That’s less a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
      We are working through our older recipes to make any necessary changes, but as there are over 300 on the site it may take a while

    1. Hi Emma
      Sukrin is exactly the same as sugar in consistency and sweetness, so I’d say it would be about 25g for the cake and 2 or 3 teaspoons of Truvia for the topping, but you should be able to check the exact conversions on the Truvia website.

    1. Hi Ann
      It really depends on the brand. Sukrin is exactly the same as normal sugar in both in weight, consistency and sweetness so you can just replace sugar in a recipe with Sukrin, which is one of the reasons we like it so much. However, other sweeteners can differ greatly in weight and sweetness (they are usually a lot sweeter) so whichever brand you use, it may be worth taking a look at their website as a lot of them have conversion tables to help you work out the ratio to normal sugar

  5. Made this cake today (but didn’t have ingredients for the icing) – was so easy and delicious. Will definitely make again. Thank you!

  6. Would the recipe work (and still be the same syn values) if you substituted the cocoa powder for Cadbury Highlights flavours, to the equivalent measurement? (2 syns per 11g sachet)

    1. Hi Nadine
      You could try using Highlights, but you may need to adjust the amount of sweetener as the Highlights sachets contain sweeteners. It probably won’t be quite as chocolately than if you use cocoa powder

  7. Please help, I’ve made this exactly how it says, it tastes nothing like cake. It taste dark and rich like dark chocolate but not very chocolatly.

    1. Hi Keri
      You could try adding some chocolate extract to enhance the chocolate flavour. I find this works well. It’s available from Waitrose, Lakeland or Amazon.

    1. Hi Beth
      If you’re on mobile tap the ‘Click HERE To Read More’ button then scroll down, or if on Desktop just keep scrolling down to find the recipe

    1. Hi Selina
      Different sweeteners vary in texture and sweetness, so it may depend on which brand you are using. Sukrin is exactly the same as sugar in texture, weight and sweetness so it’s quite easy to use. Most sweetener brands have conversion info on their websites so it may be worth checking whichever one you are using.

  8. I have Asda stevia granulated sweetener, how much would I have to use? 70g is a whole jar full so surely it can’t be that! I’ve tried to look on websites but I can’t figure it out. Thanks

    1. Hi Paige,

      We use Sukrin which weighs the same as sugar – I would suggest buying a sweetener which weighs the same rather than the powdered type, as you can then use it the same as sugar 😊

  9. hi where can i buy surkin 1 im in exeter/devon, also wot is it please and salted caramel flavouring/ where can i buy? thank you,

    1. Hi Michele,

      You can buy Sukrin 1 online (there are links in the recipe) and salted caramel flavouring is available in most of the supermarkets (I get mine from Tesco) 😊

  10. I find the Jordan’s skinny syrups useful as they combine flavour and sweetness, so no sweetner needed. It lasts forever. They do a salted caramel one. Just need a few drops

  11. Is this a lot higher in syns now that it’s 0,5 syns per tbsp of sweetener? I’ve used canedral sweetener. Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Danielle
      SW guidelines are that you need to syn granulated sweetener if using 1 tablespoon or more per serving.
      The Syn count for the cake reflects this. 🙂

    1. Hi Mary
      We recommend a granulated sweetener, rather than a powdered sweetener, as they weigh 1:1 with sugar. There are several listed in the recipe that we know will work well. I don’t know Cologran sweetener, so I can’t really comment. You can use any cocoa powder, but check the Syn value for the brand you use as there is some variation.

  12. Do you think this would work as individual cakes if I bake them in a silicon muffin tray? And bake for less time obvously..

    And it looks as though your recipe is 12 suns for the whole (6servings at 2 suns each) so I can just adjust depending on how many individual cakes it makes?


    1. Hi Claire
      Lots of our recipes can be used to make individual cakes, so yes, just divide the total Syns by the number of cakes you make!

  13. In the ingredients it says you need frylight for the topping, but I can’t see in the instructions where it says to use it?!

    1. Hi Alexa
      Thanks for bringing it to our attention. To clarify, the frylight is used to prepare the cake tin in step 1. I’ve amended the recipe card. 🙂

    1. Hi Sarah
      You could use a low fat creme fraiche, or perhaps a thicker fat free Greek yogurt, but you’d need to check the Syn values.

    1. Hi Haley
      I think I’ve answered your question asking this on the Facebook group too!
      If the recipe uses a tbsp or more per serving it needs to be Synned at 0.5 Syns per tbsp. All our recipes are up to date with this information. Make sure you’re using granulated sweetener that weighs the same as sugar, eg Natvia, Canderel Sugarly or Sukrin. Powdered sweeteners don’t work the same or weigh the same. 🙂

  14. Hi once the cake is topped with the quark mixture do you need to keep the cake in the fridge so the quark Don t go off as I’ve made for tomorrow.

    1. Hi Matthew
      Yes, it should be refrigerated because of the quark. It’s probably easier to make the topping and store in the fridge until you’re ready to serve the cake, then quickly add the topping. This will stop the cake from going too soggy. 🙂

  15. You recommend a “shallow cake tin approx. 6 inches in diameter” – I take it that’s a square tin? If so, assuming each slice is 2″ square I calculate that you’d get 9 portions out of it. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    1. Hi Angela
      We cut ours into 6 portions, at 2 Syns per portion. You can cut into 9 portions, which would work out at 1.3333 Syns per piece, but rounded up to 1.5 Syns each. Thanks for getting in touch!
