Bonus Blog! Cake!

By late last night, I was feeling a lot better, so it looks like my dicky tummy was just down to something I ate (maybe the rich meal on Sunday? Who knows?) and so I felt a bit fired up to try another recipe.

I really enjoyed my bakewell buns, and as I made them with the Asda dessert yogurts, I figured I'd try another flavour yogurt to make different buns, so I went with the sticky toffee pudding yogurts to try sticky toffee buns!

Sticky Toffee Buns

5 scan bran (5syns)
2 eggs
4 tbsp of granulated sweetener
2 Asda sticky toffee pudding dessert style yogurts
couple of drops of vanilla extract

100g of Philly extra light (6 syns)
20g of Asda extra special rich toffee sauce (4 syns)

To make the buns I crunched up the scan bran and then soaked them in water until they resembled wet weetabix with no big lumps left. I then added in the yogurt, sweetener, vanilla and beaten eggs and stirred well. I put the mix into a bun tin and then cooked for 25 mins at 180 degrees.

For the topping, I just mixed together the philly and toffee sauce. Once the buns had cooled I topped them - job done!

For 12 buns, it came out at 15 syns, so I'm allowing 1 1/2 syns for each bun to be on the safe side. I think in future I'd skip the philly light, and just top the buns with the toffee sauce, to keep the flavour more toffee-ish. It'd also bring the syns down, as I could use 30g of the sauce for 6 syns, and that would make the buns a syn each. I reckon a drop or two of boiling water in the sauce would just make it runny enough to spread on the buns nicely....maybe top with a slice of banana as well to make banoffee buns?

I think I'll be making these again for a taster party next week - I'll let you know how the variations go :)
