So this recipe has been on my to do list for quite a while now and I’ve finally got round to making it! I wish I’d done it sooner because it tastes so nice! This slimming world Weetabix cake sounds weird and like it wouldn’t taste that nice but trust me, it’s a winner.
Personally, I always thought that Weetabix was a breakfast cereal and would never go well in cakes. However, while I’ve been on my slimming world journey I’ve learned so much. Who would have thought that a diet coke chocolate cake would be a thing? Weetabix is the same and it tastes just as good!
I will say that the mixture looks like a bit of a mess and not very appealing, trust me though it tastes a lot better than it looks and you don’t have to add sugar on it like you would your breakfast, or is that just me? This healthy slimming world Weetabix cake recipe is the perfect package.
Slimming World Weetabix Cake Recipe Tips
Whenever I make a cake I make sure that I can actually get it out of the tin and this applies to the Weetabix cake as well. I use these amazing tin loaf cake liners to make sure I can get the cake out when it’s cooked. I don’t know about anyone else but I get so annoyed with the cake sticking to the tin and it doesn’t matter what I use, it always sticks!
You might think the Weetabix cake mixture is too wet, but don’t worry because it’s fine. I thought the mixture was too wet but it turned out just fine, obviously if it looks like water however it might be a little too wet.
If you want a little more texture in your Weetabix cake I would suggest adding a few more sultanas but make sure you know how much they would cost in syns!
How Many Syns In Slimming World Weetabix Cake?
If you’re looking for a syn free Weetabix cake I’m afraid you’ve come to the wrong place. This Weetabix cake has 3.5 syns in it per serving. So that means you will have to factor in that it has syns, I know not the best and no one likes to use their syns but it is worth it.
I mean if you’re looking for something mega naughty to use your syns on I would have to suggest these amazing slimming world lemon muffins which are scrumptious and worth every syn! If you’re looking for healthy cakes though, this one is the one for you.
I love making slimming world cakes and I’m always on the lookout for new recipes that I can try and I love adapting recipes already out there to make them slimming world friendly or in my opinion, better. It’s always down to personal taste though and you’ve got to keep that in mind.
If you’re on the lookout for healthy slimming world desserts you’ll be sure to find them on Matts Cafe, I love them and the slimming world journey shouldn’t be about not getting to eat yummy food!
Budget Friendly Cakes
I’m also proud to say that I’ve now started looking at the food I cook and I make sure that everything is budget worthy and cheap meals are at the forefront of what I believe in. I don’t believe that healthy food has to be expensive.
This is a cheap Weetabix cake coming in at only £0.04 a portion and £0.44 for the whole cake! I know that a bag of chocolate might taste better but this will go further and everyone can enjoy it!
I’m always looking for ways to make cheap dinners and cheap healthy meals so make sure you check out all my recipes and see how much they cost in the recipe card, you might be surprised!
