This is possibly one of the most exciting recipes I’ve ever made! I am genuinely totally in love with these Lighter Than Light Lemon Drizzle Doughnuts, and for 2 syns each you can probably see why! Not only are these light, fluffy and zingy, they’re also seriously adorable! You can find the recipe and recipe video down below.
How Are These Lighter Than Light Lemon Drizzle Doughnuts Low Syn?
The recipe for these Lighter Than Light Lemon Drizzle Doughnuts makes 20 doughnuts, which are each about 3cm in diameter. They’re more than a mouthful but they’re not big and heavy which is great! They’re made with lightest cream cheese which helps give them a fluffy texture and also helps keep them lower in fat!
They’re also made using Sukrin Melis Icing Sugar which is a sweetener icing sugar and my favourite brand to use! I love it because it doesn’t give you that nasty aftertaste that many sweeteners do. It also works in the same way as normal icing sugar, so it doesn’t disappear when you mix it with water and you don’t need an entire bag for one recipe, just as much as you would need if you were using regular icing sugar. This also means that you can substitute it for normal icing sugar if you’re not on Slimming World!
Do You Have To Syn The Sweetener In This Recipe?
You do in indeed! Under Slimming World’s new rules you have to syn sweetener at half a syn per tablespoon if there is more than a tablespoon of sweetener per portion. As these doughnuts aren’t portioned as such you do have to syn the sweetener in this recipe and that is accounted for in the syns for this recipe.
