285

(Based on a SW recipe. 8 ½ syns for the whole cake)
Serves 8
Ingredients
1 tsp Allspice
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 Carrots, finely grated (s)
2 tsp Ground ginger
3 Fresh eggs (p)
5 Scan bran (1 Heb)
5 tbsp. Sweetener
25g Stem ginger, finely chopped

Method

Break the scan bran into pieces, place in a mixing bowl, pour boiling water over them, and allow soaking for 1 minute, Mash together then draining any excess water.
Blend the scan bran with the carrot, sweetener, ginger, allspice, cinnamon & stem ginger.
Break the eggs into 2 bowls, separating the whites, add the yokes to the mix, whisk the whites until it forms peaks, and carefully fold into the mix with gentle actions so as not to lose the air in them.
Place into a microwave proof dish (I used a 23cm silicon one). Microwave for 15 mins (600w microwave) adjust time to suit wattage of microwave, cook until a metal skewer comes out clean when inserted into the cake, remove from the cooking dish, place on a rack & allow to cool.
Cut into 8 pieces, making each slice, just over 1 syn each.
