7 Servings


For the cakes

  • 5 Scan Bran
  • 3 eggs
  • 25 g cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp granulated sweetener
  • 1.5 tsp chocolate extract

For the topping

  • 6 tbsp granulated sweetener
  • 4 tsp Sweet Freedom Choc Shot
  • 3 - 4 tsp water
  • 1 - 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 7 cherries with stalks
  • 130 g quark


  1. Soak the Scan Bran in boiling water.

  2. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.

  3. When the Scan Bran has softened, drain it well and mash it up with a fork.

  4. Beat the eggs with the granulated sweetener until it has dissolved, then add the cocoa powder, chocolate extract and drained Scan Bran. Mix it well to combine all the ingredients.

  5. Divide the mix between 7 muffin cases and bake for 20-30 minutes until they are firm. They should be spongey when you press down lightly and spring back.

  6. Let the cakes cool, then mix 5 tbsp icing with 4 tsp of Choc Shot and 3-4 tsp of tepid water. Stir until smooth and glossy.

  7. Spread the icing over the top of each cake and put them in the fridge to set for 10 minutes or so.

  8. While the icing is setting on the cakes, mix the quark with the remaining icing and the vanilla extract. Mix until smooth then put it in a piping bag with a star nozzle.

  9. Pipe some of the quark on the top of each cake then top with a cherry.
