I was on holiday in Skye 3 years ago, and there was a tiny little bakery that used to cook these amazing fresh cakes every day- one of the ones I really remembered was a lemon blueberry drizzle slice and this was what I was trying to recreate here. Not a patch on theirs, but this ones tastes good, is satisfying to eat and makes you feel like you’ve had a cake without using up all your syns in one go!

Ingredients

  • 2 lemons
  • 5 eggs
  • 150 g Flora Light
  • 25 g powdered Stevia sweetener
  • 250 g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100 g blueberries
  • 8 tsp icing sugar
  • low calorie cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180c
  • Line the bottom of an 8 inch square tin with greaseproof paper and spray with low calorie cooking spray
  • Grate the zest from the lemon, and squeeze the juice
  • Cream together the low fat spread and sweetener, then whisk in the eggs (I used an electric whisk to make this as fluffy as possible!)
  • Sieve in the flour, and fold into the mixture with half the lemon zest, the blueberries, and the vanilla essence
  • Carefully spoon into the tin and bake for 20 minutes (check that the cake is cooked through by inserting a fork into the middle- it should come out clean)
  • Leave to cool a little, tip carefully out of the tin
  • To make the drizzle, mix the icing sugar into the lemon juice and add the remaining zest
  • Prick the cake all over with a fork and slowly pour the drizzle over, using a spoon to help spread to an even coverage. Leave for a few minutes to absorb
  • Cut into 16 squares and serve!

Notes

Try almond essence instead f vanilla essence for a bit of a different flavour!
