This light and fluffy sugar free blueberry yogurt cake makes for a perfect guilt free treat, at least on a sugar front. The recipe is fairly straightforward and it doesn’t call for any unusual ingredients so why not give it a try? You may just be surprised as it tastes delicious! Ingredients:

  • 180g flour
  • 85g unsalted butter
  • 50g + 1tsp Natvia*
  • 100ml natural Greek yogurt
  • 125g blueberries
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4tsp baking soda
  • 1tsp baking powder

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180C if fan assisted otherwise 190C.

Lightly grease one 8” loaf tin.

Sift and mix together the flour, baking powder and baking soda.

Add one teaspoon of Natvia into your yogurt and stir until incorporated.

In a mixing bowl beat the butter and 50g of Natvia. Please note that it doesn’t beat in the same way as you would expect when using regular sugar, you will most likely end up having a crumb like texture but don’t worry about it, it will get fixed later on in so far as resembling a traditional cake batter.

Add the eggs, one at the time and continue mixing.

Add half of your flour mixture and mix until combined, then add the remaining flour and the yogurt and mix on a low speed until the mixture has an even texture.

Your batter will be quite thick, it should be like this so again do not worry.

Add the blueberries and using a spatula fold them gently into your batter.

Pour into your earlier prepared loaf tin.

Bake in the pre-heated oven for 45-55min or until golden brown and it passes the dry toothpick test.

Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool for around 10-15 minutes, then remove from baking tin and leave to cool completely on a cooling rack.

Make yourself a nice cup of your favourite tea, or coffee if you prefer and then take your cake and cut, serve and enjoy!

And just in case this is a little too adventurous for you and you are wondering, yes, you can make it full blown standard refined sugar, just replace the Natvia with 150g of caster sugar. You will still have a light and fluffy cake just not as healthy and definitely not as low in calories.

It is all about soup! GLORIOUS! SkinnyLicious Soup Range

Soup – a liquid dish, typically savoury and made by boiling meat, fish, or vegetables etc. in stock or water.

It sounds very uninspiring doesn’t it? When in fact soup can and does provide an amazing dining experience.

When I moved to the UK, I must admit I was a little disappointed by the lack of soups on the British menu. In Poland, soup is an indispensable part of every day dinner. I really missed my soup a lot at the beginning… then I slowly became used to the lack of soup on the dinner table, but in the last year or so I have turned back to my roots and the humble soup is now more often found present on our table, which my regular readers might have notice by the amount of soup recipes I am sharing with you 🙂

Just before we went for our holidays GLORIOUS! sent us some shopping vouchers to purchase and try their healthy SkinnyLicious Soup Range. I confess, I don’t buy readymade soups very often. The reason for it: they are usually boring and often bland in taste, at least in my opinion… but looking at the funky names of GLORIOUS! soups a seed was sown that grew and grew until in the end I really, really wanted to give them a try. Well, I am so very happy I did as they are far from boring, and no one can say they are bland. They are actually quite amazing dishes as soups go. Their flavour combination is very unusual and extremely tasty and at times very surprising.

It is all about soup! GLORIOUS! SkinnyLicious Soup RangeCurrently there are 16 different flavours in the GLORIOUS! Soup Range and half of this selection, being eight, are SkinnyLicious Soups, which boast that they are less than 2% fat and under 150 calories per portion. Perfect!

I had the pleasure of trying 4 of the SkinnyLicious Soups plus I purchased one “full fat” version especially for Mark, to stop him grumbling.

It is all about soup - GLORIOUS! SkinnyLicious Soup RangeAll the soups we tried, without exception, were divine. I honestly couldn’t make better myself. San Antonio Fiesta, which is a chilli sin carne with black eye beans, haricot beans, black turtle beans and red kidney beans was a little bit too spicy for my taste but Mark loved it.

From the selection of soups we tried the Thai Tuk Tuks & Tumeric was my favourite. A fragrant carrot soup fused with coconut, lime and lemongrass – totally delicious. “Please Sir, can I have some…”

So, if you ever fancy a soup for lunch or dinner, I can honestly recommend GLORIOUS! Soup Range and if you are counting calories try one of their SkinnyLicious Range, you will not be able to tell that these are diet friendly soups, I promise.

It is all about soup! - GLORIOUS! SkinnyLicious Soup Range - San Antonio FiestaThank you GLORIOUS! for the opportunity to try something new and discover your range. I have to admit I most likely would never have purchased them otherwise but now that I’ve tried, we will definitely be buying more on a regular basis.
