With Christmas on the way, we thought we’d make some Low Syn Christmas Cakes – so much more Slimming World friendly than the standard 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 👍
Nothing speaks Christmas more than the ingredients in these Low Syn Christmas Cakes.
Black treacle, mixed spice, sherry and mixed fruit – your house will smell divine when you cook these!
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.
You can freeze these Low Syn Christmas Cakes, just ice them after they’ve fully defrosted!

These Low Syn Christmas Cakes are super easy to make!
You can use this silicone muffin tin to make these Low Syn Mini Strawberry Sponges!
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!
How do I make these Low Syn Christmas Cakes?
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post.
Preheat the oven to 160°C. In a small bowl add the sherry and mixed fruit.
In a large mixing bowl add the almond flour, eggs, black treacle, sweetener, mixed spice and baking powder and mix well until fully incorporated.
Once the mixed fruit has plumped up, add it, and the remaining sherry from the bowl into the cake mix. Stir well.
Spray a silicone muffin tin with Frylight and spoon in the cake mixture, making sure to evenly distribute the fruit. Bake for 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven, take out from the silicone cake tin carefully and place on a wire rack to cool.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the icing sugar and water to form an icing. Once the cakes are completely cool, drizzle with icing and serve!
