How do I make these Cinnamon Drizzle Squares?

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 170°C. Spray a baking tin (approx 24 x 18cm) with Low calorie cooking spray 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 Lisa,

      Try folding the mixture gently so as not to knock the air out. You could try adding a little baking powder if you prefer a higher raise on the squares – they are supposed to be relatively thin like the shop bought version. If you prefer a bigger spice punch, you can add more of the cinnamon 😊

    1. Hi Rheian,

      We’ve not tried this recipe using gluten free flour, but it does have a tendency not to rise quite as well. A teaspoon of baking powder should be plenty 😊

      Hope that helps!
