Syns for the whole cake = Approx 10 syns using cocoa powder and 9 syns using self raising flour but please check the syn values for yourself just to be sure. I accept no responsibility for incorrect syn information!
2 ounces self raising flour or cocoa powder if you want chocolate cake
9 tablespoons granulated sweetener
2 teaspoons orange or vanilla essence (up to you)
1 tub quark
Strawberries (or other fruit of your choice, we used raspberries)
2 teaspoons of vanilla or orange essence
6 Tablespoons Granulated sweetener
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.
Pour onto a swiss roll tin & bake in the oven, gas mark 5 for about 10 to 12 mins, until golden & firm to the touch.
Take out of the oven and leave to cool. When cooled, cut in half.
Filling & topping:
Beat the quark with the orange or vanilla essence & sweetener, spread 3/4 on the bottom layer of the cake, slice the strawberries & put them on top of that, put the top of the cake on & use the rest of the filling to top with the rest of the strawberries.
