  1. Preheat your oven to 220C/428F/Gas 7.
  2. Add the eggs, milk, sweetener and 2-3 drops of almond extract/essence into a bowl and beat with a whisk. Add the Lo-Dough crumbs and combine.
  3. If using a standard 8 inch tin, you will need to make an extra wall made out of tin-foil - this mix will fill roughly a third of an 8-inch square tin. Otherwise a small loaf tin or any small tin may be suitable (your Bakewells can be any shape, as long as the are roughly 1.5cm/half and inch thick.).
  4. Fill the chosen tin and bake for 10 minutes.
  5. Leave to cool on a rack and then carefully take out of the tin, remove the foil and greaseproof paper and cut into 3 squares. Top with a thin layer of jam and a small blob of icing on each. Finish with half a glacé cherry.

🍽 Serving suggestion

Sprinkle your cakes with lightly toasted, flaked almonds for a little extra flavour and texture and only a few extra calories.
