Well what can I say apart from sweet, luxurious and low calorie count! Yes, you heard right, LOW CALORIE Count, this little pudding is just 233 Kcal. Trust me too, you won’t believe it is a slimming version, the taste is so delicious. Another great little find from PON, I adapted slightly to my own tastes.

 

Makes 4

75g Self Raising Flour

1 tbsp black treacle

3 tbsp light soft brown sugar

50g reduced fat butter

2 large eggs

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp maple syrup

 

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 deg.
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a bowl (except the honey & maple Syrup) and whisk them together until combined. Do not over whisk you want to keep as much air in the mixture as possible.                                                                                20190616_175014-1
  3. Evenly distribute the clear honey and maple syrup into ramekins and then top with the cake mixture (about half way, leave room for the cakes to rise)
  4. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, remove and allow to cool slightly.
  5. Turn out on serving dishes and serve. I served with some low fat custard. Yum!

Walnut Bread

20180824_114824

Oh WOW! That’s all I’m going to say, well apart from, you have to try this. I am always looking for something different and this little recipe came from Kitchen Aid . Usually, I follow a recipe then on my second attempt change it up a little and experiment, but not on this one, it simply is delicious. Especially with some vintage cheddar…Mmmmmm.

 

450g plain flour

50g Rye flour – I used wholemeal

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp salt

45g melted salted butter

1 tbsp treacle

325ml buttermilk

200g walnut pieces

 

  1. Pre heat oven to 180 deg. I used the convection bake setting.
  2. Place the flours, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a large bowl and stir together. Make a large hole in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in the melted butter and treacle, walnut pieces plus enough of the buttermilk to make a loose sticky dough.
  3. Tip the dough onto a lightly dusted work surface. The dough will be quite sticky. Shape it into a large ball with a taut top. Place the dough on a floured baking tray and flatten it a bit. Using a knife, score the bread20180824_100603
  4.  Dust with flour then bake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and has risen.                                                                      20180824_101705
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. Serve with some lovely cheddar or simply butter.
