How do I make these Low Syn Cinnamon Drizzle Squares?

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 170°C. Spray a baking tin (approx 24 x 18cm) with Frylight and line the bottom with baking parchment.

Step 2

Place the Flora Light, granulated sweetener and eggs into a large mixing bowl and whisk with an electric hand whisk until light and frothy.

Step 3

Sift in the flour and cinnamon and fold into the mixture. Pour into the lined baking tin and place in the oven for 25 minutes.

Step 4

Once cooked, turn out onto a wire rack and remove the baking parchment. Leave to cook completely.

Step 5

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the drizzle – it should be a loose icing, but not so runny that it falls straight off the cakes. Add just a few drops of water at a time until it has reached the right consistency.

Step 6

When the cakes have cooled, cut into 12 squares and drizzle over the cinnamon icing. Serve on it’s own, or as part of a dessert!

  1. I made the cinnamon squares but there was no way it would fill tin that was suggested. I had to use a smaller tin and they were only quarter inch thick. Taste was lovely with the drizzle though.

    1. Hi Suzanne
      Thanks for getting in touch. The baking tray size has now been amended. (I think we doubled the recipe, hence the larger tin! 😉 )

  2. Just made thess today.. lovely. As im on ww i used sukrin icing sugar 0 points for the topping. 9 points for the flour & 5 points for flora light. I also folded in 1 small finely chopped gala apple to the mixture. Total 14 sp for the whole cake.. cut into 7 slices.. fab with a cuppa or what i did. Warmed slightly & topped with 1 scoop of oppo icecream. YUM

  3. Why have the syns for the granulated sweetener been left out? It’s usually 0.5 per tablespoon so the recipe is an extra 2.5 syns.

    1. Hi Molly
      Slimming World say;
      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 these Low Syn Cinnamon Squares uses 5 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 12 portions. That’s less than half a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

  4. How are the syns worked out? If 9 for the flora and 5 for the icing sugar, that is 14 for whole mixture isn’t it? But if 2.5 syns per square and makes 12 squares that would be 30 syns in total??

    1. Hi Charlotte
      The syn values for all ingredients are listed on the recipe card;
      Flour – 16 Syns
      Flora light – 9 Syns
      Icing sugar – 5 Syns

      Total – 30 Syns (Divided by 12 portions = 2.5 Syns each)

  5. made these today. i truly dislike cinnamon, so substituted ginger instead. OMG! they are delicious. i managed to cut mine into 16 smaller pieces, making 2 syns per piece.is the cake supposed to be just about 1cm thick? used a pan 24×18 cm too. but will definitely make again.

    1. Hi Mandy
      Keep whisking and the mixture will go frothy and thicken. It can take a little while, which is why we recommend the electric whisk. 🙂

  6. I’m afraid I didn’t rate these at all and won’t be making again. They had a very dense texture and did not rise to the extent of a normal sponge cake despite the self raising flour. Think if I fancy cake next time I’ll just spend the syns!

    1. Hi Chris
      It’s really important not to over-mix the ingredients as this can knock the air out. Check that the tin is the correct size too. Make sure the oven is preheated and up to temperature before you pop the cake mix in to cook. Try to avoid opening the oven until at least 2/3 of the way through cooking time.
      You could also try whisking the egg whites separately and folding them into the mixture to introduce as much air as possible. Hope that helps. 🙂
