1 syn cupcakes with chocolate icing


makes 16 - 1 syn per cupcake


  • 6 eggs
  • 56g self raising flour (or 28g cocoa powder & 28g s.r flour if you want chocolate cakes) -9
  • 9 tablespoons granulated sweetener
  • 2 teaspoons orange or vanilla essence (up to you)


  • 1 tbsp icing sugar -3
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder-1
  • Choc drops 48 (3 per cake) (mine weights roughly 12g) - 3
  • 25g cold water to mix icing sugar & cocoa

Whisk up egg whites until stiff

In a separate bowl whisk egg yolks with either the orange or vanilla essence & sweetener, add a 1/4 of the egg white & beat until pale yellow.

Add the flour gradually & fold into the mix carefully, when done add the rest of the egg whites & fold in.

Divide equally into 16 cupcake cases & bake in the oven on 180 for about 10 to 12 mins, or until golden & firm to the touch.

Wait until cool & then mix the cocoa & icing sugar in a bowl with some water so make a thickish paste. Spread a spoonful of choc icing onto each cupcake (divide into 16) and put 3 choc drops on each cake.


  1. This will be more than one syn as you have to syn the flour, sweetener, icing sugar, cocoa powder and chocolate drops!@

  2. Granulated sweetener is ½ a syn per tablespoon so they work out as nearly 1.3 syns per cupcake!
