Ingredients:

  • 150g (5oz) margarine
  • 200g chopped dates
  • Two tbsp sugar free apricot jam
  • Three medium eggs
  • 500g (1lb 1oz) pumpkin flesh
  • 300g (10.5oz) plain flour
  • Two tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • One tsp ground nutmeg

For The Filling And Topping:

  • 250g (9oz) cream cheese
  • Four tbs sugar free apricot jam

Method:

Preheat your oven to 180 deg C/350 deg F/gas mark four. Place your dates and pumpkin in a large pan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Simmer for five minutes. Cream your butter and jam in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat your eggs then stir in. When your pumpkin and dates are soft, stir into your mixture and whiz with a hand blender. Add your flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda and nutmeg. Grease a 20cm (eight ins) cake tin.

Spoon your mixture in and bake in the centre of your oven for about 40 minutes or until cooked all the way through, and a skewer comes out clean. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Beat your cream cheese with your sugar free apricot jam. Once cool, cut your pumpkin cake in two. Spread your cream cheese mixture inside and on the top. Decorate with small, plastic orange pumpkins or other Halloween decorations.

  • Three large tbsp honey
  • 115g (4oz) self-raising flour
  • 75g (2.5oz) cocoa
  • Three large eggs

For The Topping:

  • One 284ml (10 fl oz) pot whipping cream
  • Red or green food colouring

For The Filling:

  • Four tbsp sugar free blueberry jam

Method:

Preheat your oven to 180 deg C/350 deg F/gas mark four. Melt your butter and honey in a small pan. Sieve your flour and cocoa into a large bowl. Add your hot liquid and stir. Beat your eggs and then stir them in too. Grease an 18cm (seven ins) cake tin and then spoon in your mixture.

Bake for about 20 minutes until your sponge has risen and it is cooked all the way through. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Turn out and allow to cool for another 10 minutes on a rack. Slice in two and spread your sugar free blueberry jam inside.

Empty your cream into a bowl and add food colouring until the desired shade is achieved. Then whip. Spread your “revolting” green or red topping on to the cake – and serve to visiting witches, wizards and ghosts.

    Re: No Sugar Sponge Cakes
    Instead of honey use xylitol. Perfect for diabetics and tastes as good as refined sugar. Add some vanilla as well for a bit of taste

    3 tbs Honey = 51 grams sugar. I'm diabetic so this recipe would be a disaster.
