    Hiya, Hope your all having a good day! Attempted making my first half syn cake! The only problem was that it completely stuck to the greaseproof paper despite spraying with fry light! Nightmare to peel off! Anyone any tips? Hope it tastes good. Will be sampling with afternnon cuppa.

    Spookily enough I have just made one too lol! I find some greaseproof paper better than others - the one I am using at the moment is a very pale ( almost white ) one from the Co-op and make sure you spray it really well too x

    I made this once and not sure if I did it right but it tasted like a sweet omelette so had to throw it away. Be interesting to see what others think.

    I've seen the same recipe made as a kind of swiss roll. Made in the same way but instead of two sandwich tins, the mixture was spread into a normal baking tray. The Quark mixture and fresh fruit (thinly sliced) is then laid on top and the whole thing is rolled up. It looked lovely but admittedly I haven't tried it...

    I wonder if it's the same chocolate one that I make (eggs, cocoa, sweetner, vanilla off the top of my head). I use silicon muffin trays to make indiviual ones.

    Sounds similar I use 3 eggs, 1/3 cup sweetner, 28g cocoa and 1tsp vanilla. Use the same method but make 6-7 muffins so no filling. Great for a cake day and tastes like cake!lol

    Try Baking Paper, much more forgiving that greaseproof paper.

    Are the cakes nice??

    Don't use greaseproof paper it sticks to any cake. Either just use fry light or use parchment paper.

    The one on the sw website they dont put quark in the mixture - can imagine that making it more "eggy"

    I love it - last time I mixed a muller greek lemon yoghurt in the topping instead of the fromage frais and it was absolutely delicious - just makes it a 1 syn cake.....I can live with that!!!
