This recipe is suitable for Slimming World or my Low Carb Diet and is Free from Dairy & Wheat

There are the two different versions below to serve 2 people

Marble Carob Fingers – Low Carb and Free from wheat, dairy, gluten

carob marble slicesThese are rather tasty but also low in carbohydrates. I made them in a small foil baking tray from Waitrose. But you can use any small baking tray you have to hand (Approx 6 x 5″)

You need half the mixture of the reduced carb sponge cake

Mix 2 tspns carob powder to a paste with warm water. Then stir it into the cake mixture to make it look marbled. Spoon it into the baking tray.

Reduced Carb Sponge Cake ~ Also free from Dairy, Wheat, Corn and Dairy

reduced sugar cake

If you follow Aunty Lils Unit Counting Diet, a portion (1/8) will count as 2.5 units.

I find it’s best cooked in loose bottomed non stick sandwich tins approx 8″ diameter. But you can use any cake tin you like, just bake until it feels fairly firm on top. When you touch it gently with your finger, it should spring back.

This is a great cake for people who can’t have wheat flour because cakes made from things like rice flour have more of a powdery or dry texture. But the addition of almonds makes it more moist like a ‘proper’ sponge cake.
