However, you can easily alter this recipe to make it a Weetabix cake slimming world recipe.
For instance, to reduce the syn value, use skimmed milk. Instead of sugar, you can use liquid or granulated sweeteners. They are widely available.
Moreover, if you’re using oil or butter for the pan so that your edges don’t burn, instead of using 1 tsp of oil for the pan, use a low-calorie cooking spray. Just imagine, 1 tsp of oil contains 2 syns. This alternative to 1 tsp of oil or butter will lower your syn value.
