More or less everyone I know is attending Slimming World (apart from myself!), so I thought I would try some recipes and I have been impressed. Recently I attempted to make a Slimming World cake and I found it too bitter so I developed this one which I much prefer. I worked it out as 1 syn per slice but please correct me if I’m wrong!
As you may or may not know, I am a keen cake maker/eater and a big Star Wars fan. No I’m not jumping on the band wagon, I’m a lifelong fan!
I was recently asked to review one of Baker days letterbox cakes from their Christmas designs. My first thought was that it was a genius idea and why didn’t I think of it! Secondly I thought, how is a cake going to survive the Royal Mail, especially my postman who is a bit heavy handed when it comes to parcels?!
These are really cheap and easy to make, plus both my toddlers actually loved them (hurrah!!). I had a couple left over so they went into the freezer for another day. The fish paste is very budget friendly, they still taste just as delicious as ones with fresh fish.
Makes: 6 Cost: 32p each
I usually make these with any leftover mashed potato or if I have a few potatoes left that I have no use for. It is a traditional Cornish recipe, although I have never found any where in Cornwall that makes them so let me know if there is any where!
Makes 12 Costs 7p per potato cake
One of my favorite restaurants does a passionfruit cheesecake, which is my favourite dessert ever! I can’t afford to go out and eat any more so I thought I would try and recreate it at home. It was actually really easy and simple to make. You will need a cake tin with a removable bottom.
This won’t be to everyone’s taste and you might think I’ve lost my marbles, putting onion and sweetcorn into cake mix. But it just works, trust me! It can be enjoyed with cheese and chutney, dipped in soup or simple just by itself.
