If you don’t like sherry, you can replace it with another Christmassy spirit (not the ghost of Christmas past kind…) or even orange juice.

Just remember to adjust the Syns accordingly.

These Low Syn Christmas Cakes are super easy to make!

You will need a silicone muffin tin which you can get from Amazon.

You’ll also need some Almond flour!

Syns DO vary when it comes to almond flour as some aren’t de-fattened.

We used Sukrin Almond flour which you can get from Sainsbury’s and other online places.

You could use other Almond flours but please check the Syns first!!

How many Syns are in these Low Syn Christmas Cakes?

These Low Syn Christmas Cakes are just 2 Syns each!

That’s a huuuuge Syn saving when compared to a normal Christmas cake, but you still get all the flavours!

If you wanted to make them even lower in Syns, you could leave off the icing, but we think it really adds to the cakes, and makes them feel like a real treat.

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!

We used the Avocado one for these Low Syn Christmas Cakes, and it was fab!

  1. How do you store these? Will they keep in a tin or do you have to freeze them so that they can be eaten nearer Christmas?

    1. Hi Jill
      These will be fine stored in an airtight container for a few days. You can freeze them if you make them ahead of time, but don’t freeze with the icing on. Defrost thoroughly and ice on the day you want to use them. 🙂

    1. Hi Nicola
      Coconut flour is more absorbent than other types of flour, so you may need to add more liquid which could affect the texture/consistency. We’ve only tried them using almond flour. Please let us know how you get on if you try using coconut flour. 🙂

    1. Hi Patricia
      I think it might work…but you’d need to adjust the timings, and possibly double the recipe up as I’m not sure it would make a very deep cake! Let us know how you get on!

    1. Hi Adrienne
      Almond flour is cold pressed and this removes quite a bit of the fat from the almonds, making the flour lower in Syns. If you choose to use ground almonds, they have a higher Syn value, so you’ll need to check Syns and adjust accordingly. 🙂
