  • Can you have the weetabix as a HeB, to avoid thos syns?

  • admin

    well you can use scan bran as a HEb in cakes, so I don’t see why not 🙂

  • Thats cool! It looks yum!

  • Ok I had a go at this. Very simple to make, was quite impressed that it did rise! lol Loved the quark topping and banana. The cake was a cake. Lovely and soft!

    Only disaster I had was the toffee. I havent ever made this before. So I ended up not taking it off the heat quickly enough and II was serving 4, the first one was fine but it kept cooking and even though i was going fast it burned very quickly.

    Anyway my piccy isnt as glamorous as your but here is my attempt.

    Yeah you do need to get it off the heat as soon as it starts to turn golden. It doesnt take long for it to burn otherwise. From you pic, it looks fine and very yummy. 🙂

  • It was very nice, another thumbs up from my family anyway lol I bought scan brans today to try your recipe for that as I managed to find the brown splenda 😉

    Quick question – what is scan bran?

  • admin

    scan bran is short for scandinavian bran crispbreads. You can buy them online, at healthy food stores or I think some slimming world meetings sell them.
