Peach Crumble Cake

Having managed to put on another half a stone since delivering Baby Plum in August (don't ask how* - I thought that breastfeeding was supposed to help you lose the 'mum tum'?!) I finally realised that enough was enough and that it was time to go back to Weight Watchers .....

On Monday WW released a new version of their programme "ProPoints" where all the components of food are taken into account, not just the calories and saturated fat. It seems to make sense ... and I am sticking to my 51 points (sounds horrifically high when you are used to being on 18 or 20 points a day!). I'm doing it online at the moment as it is easier for me .... I lost 4 lbs in my first week - am hoping that I manage to lose something this week!

I've got my NCT friends coming round tomorrow for tea and cake so have knocked up a Weight Watchers cake - Peach Crumble Cake. I have never made it before, it looks ... ermm ... interesting! I have recalculated the ProPoints and it is 5 points a slice. Not bad eh?

I thought it looked suitably stodgy for a blustery November day ... I'll post the recipe once I have tried it!

[* living off chocolate digestives for 6 weeks probably didn't help ... and then there is all the cake, cake, cake, cakey, CAKE!!!]

Breastfeeding worked for me, I lost the five stone I put on within around nine months, which I thought was pretty impressive.

I did try weight watchers, but the old version....and that helped. I haven't heard about this new plan....sounds interesting.

The cake looks yummy. I hope it tastes just as good. Hugs xx

Looks absolutely scrumptious!

Sounds sensible! I have actually lost half a stone in the past 4 weeks due to being petrified that everything I eat may affect my blood sugar!
Have fun with your 'baby' ladies :)

Hi! I've just come across this after making this cake myself. I'm a beginner-baker and not sure if I've done the recipe wrong.... it's come out oven very stodgy indeed! Light and fluffy are far from it... :) Did you find that with this cake too?

Hi Kirstie,

I found this cake very stodgy ... more like a wintry pudding which would need lots of custard to make it edible. Needless to say, I have only made it the once!

I've decided that full fat cakes are the way to go ... a little treat now and then is good! :)

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog.
