You wouldn’t believe these Half Syn Chocolate Christmas Pudding Cakes are made with scan bran. Seriously you wouldn’t!
In case your wondering what Scan Bran is, it’s a Slimming World legend! Imagine a thicker, more tasteless Ryvita that’s about the thickness of toast. Some people eat it often, some even grill it and use it as toast (really!).

You can buy Scan Bran from any Slimming World group, or via some places online.
Due to the batter being a little heavier, it is prone to stick so make sure you use a good spray of Frylight. It’s just 1 kcal a spray, and so easy to apply. Oh, it’s also syn free!
How many syns are in Half Syn Chocolate Christmas Pudding Cakes?
All of the syn values are on the recipe below, and you’ll probably be aware of the changes around synning sweetener. We use a sweetener called Sukrin Gold, which has the same sweetness to weight ratio as sugar.
It’s also pretty close to brown sugar in taste and texture. You don’t need to use it (you can use which ever sweetener you like!) we just prefer it as there is no nasty, artificial after taste.
As this recipe is less than 1 tbsp of sweetener per portion then you don’t need to syn the sweetener (there are 4 tbsp between all 32 cakes). However, if you were to eat more than 8 in one sitting, then I’d recommend you added an extra half syn just to cover yourself.
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 Half Syn Chocolate Christmas Pudding Cakes recipe.
