Food: Filling and Healthy Lemon Drizzle Cake

Filling and Healthy Lemon Dress

As I mentioned in a previous post the only downside to Filling and Healthy is there are little sweet treats that fit into it. Of course I use my 49 for the odd sweet treat (mainly poptarts, yum!) but I want to eat sweet treats that aren't compeltely full of sugar but still satisfying. Enter this little creation.This recipe is adapted from a Weight Watchers one (here) and some tips I've found from a Filling and Healthy Facebook group.

One of the main things I've learnt from this Filling and Healthy group is to replace flour with ground oats instead, as that'll make it 0pp.


Here I've got:

3 eggs

75g caster sugar

2 lemons

75g of oats mixed in a food processor to ressemble a more flour like consistency


Begin my whisking your eggs, sugar and lemon zest (from one lemon) in a bowl. I recommend an electric whisk as it takes about 5 mins to do. You need a 'thick, light and airy consistency'.


Add the oats and a tsp of Baking Powder and gently fold in. Then transfer to a cake tin. Cook in the over on 190 for around 15 mins.


For the drizzle I used the juice of both lemons and the zest of one with 1 tsp of icing sugar. I'd say one juice would be plenty though as mine came out rather tart.


Your cake is now done.

I cut mine into six and it'll be 1pp of slice on Filling and Healthy. It wasn't perfect, less lemon in the drizzle is a must and longer in the oven (mine sank in the middle due to me getting it out too early and finding out it wasn't fully cooked). For a first attempt though, I'm proud.
