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 đź‘Ť

These little cakes are super quick and easy to make, and don’t require any whisking of egg whites or delicate folding. The silicone mould does all the hard work! I like to add a little yellow food colouring to the mixture to brighten them up – you can leave it out if you don’t want to use it.

If you’re not too keen on almond flavour, these would work with any flavouring you like!

The Sukrin Almond flour is my new favourite baking ingredient (see below) – surprisingly it’s not an over-powering almond flavour but works really well in fatless sponges and you don’t need to use much so it’s very economical.

Almond Flour

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

Almond Flour is great to use as a substitute for regular flour.
You can replace up to 100% of normal flour with Almond Flour to bake anything. The only exception is baking with yeast (you should replace 10-20% of the regular flour for this due to the lack of gluten)

As with coconut flour, almond flour has a high fibre content, it will soak up more
liquid – up to twice as much as normal types of flour. This means you can reduce the amount of almond flour to 50-60% of the original amount of flour, or increase the amount of liquid in the recipe.

It also has a lower syn value (3.5 syns for 25g) so not only are you using less Almond flour, it will cost you less syns too!

We use Sukrin Almond Flour as it is also reduced fat. You can pick some up on Amazon UK.. You could also use any defatted almond flour but just make sure you check the nutritional values as they do vary depending on brand.

I used Sukrin Icing Sugar to decorate, which keeps calories and Points lower. You could use chocolate or sweets but remember to account for them accordingly. Why not keep the kids occupied over the Easter Holidays and get them to help too!

You will need a silicone baking mould like this one to make these Low Syn Marzipan Easter Egg Cakes.

You can grab one from Amazon UK.

What is Sukrin?

We use Sukrin Gold which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Gold over onAmazon UK.

Sukrin Gold 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 these Marzipan Easter Eggs.

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.

As mentioned I used Sukrin Icing which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to icing sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Icing over onAmazon UK.

You can use it to decorate in exactly the same way you would use normal icing sugar.

    1. Hi Jennifer
      Coconut flour is very absorbent and soaks up a lot of moisture. Replacing it means that you would have to adjust the amount of liquid and/or eggs added, as well as using less coconut flour than the recipe states. An approximate ratio is 1 cup of normal or almond flour to 1/3 to 1/4 cup of coconut flour.

  1. Hello there. So grateful for all you do. You’re so fab and help so many of us out here. Thank you. Anyway, was just wondering if you could maybe come up with something like these, for Christmas, as mini ish type stollens???
