Cherry Fakewells

Cherry Bakewell Tarts are one of my all-time favourite cakes and I loved visiting Bakewell for the best tasting ones. With this in mind I wanted to try and recreate the taste using a Slimming World friendly recipe. After searching the internet and Instagram I settled with this recipe. I must express they are not all my own idea, I just took the idea to the next level. They are so simple to do and make a delicious alternative to the 10 syn original cakes. Give them a go, I am sure you will enjoy!!

Recipe makes 2 cakes

2 cakes = Daily HeB and are 1 Syn each (or 4 syns each if not using HeB)

Ingredients

  • 35g Porridge Oats (HeB)
  • 50ml Milk (part of HeA allowance)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Almond Flavouring
  • 2 tbsp Sweetener
  • 2 tsp Cherry or Strawberry Jam
  • 1 Glace Cherry (halved)

For the Icing

  • 2 tbsp Quark
  • 2 tsp Sweetener
  • ยฝ tsp Vanilla Essenceย ย 

Method

  1. Mix the oats, eggs, 2 tablespoons sweetener, milk and almond flavouring together in a bowl.
  2. Divide the mixture equally between two cupcake cases (silicon ones work best sprayed with a bit of frylight first)
  3. Place 1 tsp of jam into the centre of each case of mixture.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes until golden.
  5. Set aside to cool.
  6. Meanwhile for the icing add the quark, 2 teaspoons of sweetener and vanilla essence to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  7. Place the mixture in the fridge to chill and thicken.
  8. Remove the cakes from the cases, top with quark icing and half a glace cherry each.

For more cakes just increase the mixtures accordingly. They keep for a few days in an airtight container so make a great sweet lunchtime snack.

    Hi, these look delicious, I’ll definitely be making them at weekend! Does the jam need to be sugar free, or will the regular kind still be low syns? Thankyou.

      Thanks for the comments. I don’t believe there is any syn difference between normal and reduced sugar jam, so that will be fine. M x

      Lol! These are my star recipe! A little tip, just make a bit of icing to top them for an extra syn instead of quark x
