    i will have to try this again as mine was a flop. dry. small. thin.

    but, people on here seem to like it

    what else do people spread on it besides Quark? as it was quite dry!

    thanks!

    I sometimes use the tolerated items but certainly not every day, such as, 1 tablespoon of sugar free jam or 1 wedge of light laughing cow cheese. I was stagnant with weight loss for awhile, so I didn't use any extras.

    When I make mine, I only cook it for 1:30. I'm not sure what wattage my microwave is, but I just kept reducing the time until it came out moist. The first attempt closely resembled a crouton!

    I sometimes put sweetened quark with soaked goji berries on top. I also use mixed spice in them when doing a sweetened version. If yours are coming out hard and dry, check you have the right proportions of everything, including a whole egg not just the white, and the wheat bran mixed in gives a more bread like flavour. Make sure you add enough of the wet stuff, i mix quark and yogurt. Mix all together to get it well blended. Check your baking powder is fresh. Use a container that gives it a chance to rise properly, it needs the sides for support. Mine doubles in size.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again

    Sorry for my silence on the subject, I didn't notice this discussion. I think good suggestions have already been made.

    Also, as I found out today, for the microwave version, making the mix too water-wet (my egg was small and I only had yoghurt to hand) made mine not rise much and stay quite cakey.
    You can also try using baking SODA instead of baking powder- it reacts with the acidity in the FromFrais/Yoghurt. You need much less though, and it gives it a bit of a 'Soda Bread' taste...

    And yes - adjust the cooking time, my MW is only 800W and 3 minutes seems to be exactly right for my container shape too.

    As for spreading - yes I frequently have quark for the first moisture layer (instead of butter or philly, sometmes I just sprinkle the quark with fresh chives and a sprinkling of Salt&Pepper) but after that treat it like a normal sandwich: occasional lean ham, roasted sliced chicken/turkey, bresaola, tuna 'mayonnaise' (tuna, quark, chives, vinegar/lemon to taste), egg 'mayonnaise' (mashed up egg again with fromfrais and mustard), slices of smoked salmon, tinned salmon 'pate' with dill (made just as the two 'mayo' variations above). Or toast and cut into finger for dipping in soft-boiled egg.

    Sweet things: Sweetened & Vanilla flavoured Quark / FromFrais, topped with SF/FF Jelly 'Jam' (I do that with the 'muffins' after splitting them horizontally). Or toast and dipped in sweetened / flavoured Yoghurt, I like that for breakfast too.

    Think normal 'sandwich' and the possibilities are endless really. I usually also add some rocket / lettuce / sliced cucumber etc etc, and recently in Conso have also been adding sliced fruit for the sweet version.

    I don't think sugar free jam is a tolerated item.

    I put turkey bacon in the middle of mine to make a bacon butty.

    Sorry I expressed that incorrectly. I use normal Hartleys sugar-free jelly (the sachets or the ready pots) - the ones that call themselves '10 cal per portion'. I then use them like I would jam, by putting on top of my quark... or in my pancakes too - when I'm desperate for that fruit effect....

    So you can eat this entire thing in one day?
    That would be great for munching on!

    Also, I didn't know we were allowed laughing cow triangles

    What is 'this entire whole thing'? You can have 2 TB oatbran and 1Tb wheat bran in Cruise. If you make the microwave bread with those amounts then yes you can. If you make the breadmaker loaf with 12 TB oatbran then you have made 6 days' worth.

    Laughing cow, I have no idea, if we are allowed then they are tolerated items no doubt, one (or less?) per day max. And only the extra-lite version.

    Yesterday I made two DD breads, one with Splenda, mixed spice, ginger and goji berries, the other plain. I used one egg between the two to cut down a touch. Great as I had two half portions yesterday and two today, sweet and savoury. They just need toasting to spruce them up.

    I really fancy making the bread machine bread but I can't find any wheat bran I've done a quick online search on tescos website but the search showed up nothing. I don't have any holland and barrats shops close to me.

    I have an 800w microwave and it only needs two minutes. I did try 3 but had to throw it away as it was like a brick!

    I have to cook mine with all of the doors closed so my husband can't smell it cooking.

    It smells really eggy but tastes fine.

    It does say in the book you can have lean bacon so I intend having two bacon medallions with nuked tomato in two slices of this for lunch.
