Raspberry Roulade – Only 1/2 Syn For Whole Cake – REALLY

rasberry roulade half a syn for the whole cakeSo you may laugh about the fact you can have a really tasty sweet cake on Slimming World and still lose weight right?

Well this cake is only HALF A SYN FOR THE WHOLE CAKE, not that you would eat the whole cake in one go (or you might) but you can make it in under 20 minutes and it is such a simple recipe I doubted it would taste of anything much but was pleasantly surprised. Of course you can use any fruit on this providing it is Syn free but I love raspberries.

This would be perfect as an after dinner treat or if you have family round and want to do a desert Slimming World style, but the chances are no one will even know its low fat/diet food. I also topped it with some further quark with sweetener so it was like having a cream on the top :-)

0.5 Syns of Extra Easy, Original & Green Plans for the WHOLE CAKE :-) or cut it into 4-6 portions if you are not feeling greedy :-)

Raspberry Roulade - Only ½ Syn For Whole Cake - REALLY
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
0.50 Syns on Extra Easy, Original & Green Plans FOR THE ENTIRE ROULADE/CAKE
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: British
Serves: 4
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • a tub of quark (250g)
  • 3 tbsp of sweetener (level not heaped)
  • Raspberries (or any other Syn free fruit)
  1. Separate the 4 eggs into two bowls, yolks and whites
  2. Add ½ tub of quark, sweetener, vanilla essence & baking powder to the yolks
  3. Wisk into a creamy consistency and put to one side
  4. Take the egg whites and wisk until stiff
  5. Add half of the egg whites to the egg yolk mixture and stir in gently
  6. Then fold the other half of the eggs whites into the mixture
  7. Take an oven tray, line line with grease proof paper and spray with fry light
  8. Ensure you use plenty of fry light to avoid the cake sticking to the paper
  9. Pour the mixture on the tray/paper
  10. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown 180c (it doesn't take very long to bake
  11. Whilst warm peel the paper from the cake (gently) and then lay cake out to cool
  12. I used a big knife underneath the paper to gently remove the cake from paper
  13. While cooling take the remainder of the quark and add sweetener to taste
  14. Spread the quark onto the cake (now cool) and add fruit you are using
  15. I used raspberries and added them evenly across the cake and squished them
  16. Then gently roll the cake up into a roll (like a swiss roll)
  17. Cut into 4-6 pieces - or eat the whole cake yourself for ½ a Syn :-)
