Half Syn Roulade.

Hi guys,

I’ve seen from scanning the facebook page that this is a pretty popular Slimming World Recipe – and I can see why – 1/2 a syn for cake?! Winner! To put this in perspective for everyone else, a cadbury’s creme egg is 8.5 syns. A freddo chocolate bar is 4.5. A curly wurly is 6. So 1/2 a syn for a whole cake?! Perfect sweet fix!

So here goes…


  • 4x Eggs.
  • 4 tbsp Sweetener.
  • 1 tub Quark (fat free creme cheese)
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder.
  • A few drops of Vanilla Essence.
  • Strawberries.


  • Seperate the egg whites, and whisk until stiff.

  • In another bowl, add the Baking Powder, half a tub of Quark, Vanilla Essence and half the Sweetener to the Egg Yolks.

  • Whisk until peaks form.

  • Fold in the Egg Whites.

  • Grease and line a baking tray and pour in mixture.

  • Cook on a medium heat for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • Meanwhile, mix the remaining Quark with 2 tbsp Sweetener.

  • Leave cake to cool, then spread evenly with Quark mixture.

  • Chop Strawberries and spread evenly.

  • Roll it up!

Slimming World Lowdown!

Like I said earlier, 1/2 syn for the WHOLE lot! Woohoo! 😀

Common Problems!

  • It tastes too ‘eggy’ – Make sure you have added sweetener and vanilla essence.
  • It has the texture of a massive omelette – Be sure to whisk everything properly with an electric whisk, and cook thoroughly.

    I made this amazing recipe at the weekend and you would never know it was a slimming world recipe! I think the secret is to whisk everything VERY thoroughly. Mine was just like a really light swiss roll sponge. One of the best SW recipes I’ve come across ;-))
