Lemon drizzle ‘cake’

The picture for this cake popped up on my Pinterest feed for healthy Slimming World recipe ideas, and looked so good, and it is a low-‘syn’ cake, so I thought this recipe couldn’t go wrong… I was mistaken!

How it looked in the picture… yummy!

This cake uses whisked egg whites with a little flour to act as the raising agent, rather than the usual quantities of flour and fat. It was easy to make and looked quite promising in its raw form. It even looked promising in the oven, and promising when it first came out the oven – all risen up and firm to the touch. The lemon smell was delicious too. However five minutes later the cake was as flat as a pancake!

Flat… and nothing like the Pinterest picture 😦

I forgot to take a photo of a slice of the cake, but imagine the inside of this picture to be part-omelette, part-soufflé, and part-something-odd in texture. It did taste nice, if a little artificial due to the sweetener used in place of sugar, but it looked nothing like the picture in the original Pin. I later channelled my inner-Sherlock and searched on Google Images for ‘lemon drizzle cake’ and found the picture there – the tricksters had used that instead of their own photo!
