1 Syn A Slice Jam And Coconut Sponge

Posted on


Those of us that are of a certain age will probably remember being served this as a dessert for school dinners. Looking back it probably wasn’t the healthiest of times! This 1 Syn A Slice Jam And Coconut Sponge will bring back all those memories, but thankfully not all of the calories and that inevitable sugar rush.

As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.

Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.

The recipe for this 1 Syn A Slice Jam And Coconut Sponge uses 2 tablespoons of sweetener and is divided into 15 portions. That’s way less than half a tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.
You can enjoy this with a cup of tea, or as a pudding, warmed with some low fat custard (just remember to count the syns!) or some Vanilla or Banana & Custard Muller Light.

One thing to point out when making this 1 Syn A Slice Jam And Coconut Sponge it’s important to make sure you fold in the egg whites gently. If you don’t you may not get the right consistency, and it may turn out ‘eggy’.
If the flour and egg yolk mixture is a little stiff after adding the 2 tbsp of water then you can add a bit more water just to make folding the egg whites in a little easier. Just remember, the egg whites must be stiff after whisking (you should be able to hold the bowl upside down over your head without getting egg on your face!)

Finally, you don’t have to cut this into 15 pieces. You can cut this into as many slices as you want but don’t forget to adjust the syn value accordingly!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
