I love Spiced Pumpkin…pie, latte, doughnuts, and now Low Syn Spiced Pumpkin Cake!

This cake is so delish. It’s really moist and would work so well served warm as a pudding with some creme fraiche.

I like to cook the pumpkin or butternut squash in the microwave – it’s really simple and quick! Just cut it into chunks (leaving the skin on) and the pop in the microwave until the flesh is soft, and scoop away from the skin. I hate peeling squash and pumpkin so this saves the hassle!

When making this cake, it’s important to be really gentle when you fold the egg whites in so as not to knock the air out. The Xanthan Gum just helps give the cake a little more stability as it doesn’t have much flour (and therefore much gluten), though this does mean it’s low in syns!

 

As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.

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 this Low Syn Spiced Pumpkin Cake uses 6 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 12 portions. That’s half a tablespoon per portion. That means if you’re only having a piece of this then there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

You can find Xanthan Gum in the gluten free aisle at most supermarkets, but if not you can pick up a tub on Amazon

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Pre heat the oven to 160 degrees and line the bottom of a 9 inch square tin with baking parchment.
  2. In a bowl, mix the egg yolks and 1 whole egg with the Sukrin Gold, spices and cooked pumpkin (or butternut squash)
  3. Fold in the flour, xanthan gum and baking powder.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff. Fold these in carefully so as not to knock out too much air, but ensure they are fully incorporated or there will be white patches of egg white in the cooked cake.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown
  6. Once cooked, turn out upside down onto a wire rack and leave to cool before taking off the parchment.
  7. Cut into 12 pieces. Serve warmed as a dessert or cold as a cake - this can be dusted very lightly with Sukrin Icing Sugar immediately before serving to make it look irresistible!

    1. Hi Gemma,

      You can get it in the free from aisle in most supermarkets or via Amazon. It costs anywhere from £1.50-5 a tub, but you don’t need very much at all.

  3. Made this today ready for kids Halloween party tomorrow topped it with a sweetened quark topping. So easy to make and super quick.
