Instructions

  1. Preheat an oven to 160 degree. Add eggs and granulated sweetener into a bowl and whisk until frothy. Fold in the flour, baking powder and vanilla extract and divide evenly between 9 in a silicone mini muffin mould. Cook for 12 minutes until golden and cooked through and leave to cool on a wire rack.
  2. Whilst the cakes are cooking, make the filling. Add the quark, jam, granulated sweetener and xanthan gum into a bowl and mix well until it starts to thicken. Leave to chill in the fridge until the cakes have cooled.
  3. When the cakes are cooled, cut each cake in half and spread a little of the filling on the bottom half, top with a slice of strawberry then replace the top half. Add a tiny bit of filling to the top of the cake and place a strawberry slice on top.
  4. Dust with Sukrin icing sugar and serve!

    Hi Susan,

    Some supermarkets stock this flour, but there are lots of different brands available. We like to use a defatted coconut flour to reduce the calories so just make sure you check the nutritional values of whichever brand you choose to use ????

    Xanthan Gum is a gluten free thickening agent, you can pick it up in the free from section of most supermarkets or you can get it from Amazon 🙂
