Egg custard tarts are one of life’s beautiful things. If it was possible to create something just as good but healthy, we’d be incredibly rich. So this Low Syn Egg Custard will have to do, they’re sweet, eggy, and really easy to prepare and cook.
With the limited amount of ingredients required, they’re almost a store cupboard pudding. A good one at that!
Please note that this recipe has been amended to take into account the changes regarding granulated sweeteners that Slimming World made a while ago.
These changes mean that this recipe is no longer Syn Free.
For further details about these changes take a look at the information regarding Synning Sweeteners which you will find below.

Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Low Syn Egg Custard.
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.
Synning the sweetener
Update – As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some 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 now 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 Egg Custard uses 4 tbsp and is divided into 2 portions so if you choose to Syn the sweetener then it is recommended you add 2 Syns on to the whole recipe, making it 1 Syn per portion.
