    I've made this in the past - I think it's like a steamed pudding - there are lots of other versions too - I have put some sultanas in (and synned them) and added cinamon. I tend not to drink tea or coffe at the weekends so made syn free egg custard to go with it.

    A word of warning I think is not too over indulge in this although it's free - still think of it as a treat rather than staple diet.

    I also made the syn free lemon meringue last weekend and it was delicious!

    Yes that's right, but for this receipe the couscous isn't being changed i.e. it's not being ground, so it is still classed as a free food

    My version:

    125g cous cous soaked in 200ml boiling water.
    Then stir in:
    2 tablespoons lemon curd
    Juice of a lemon (and zest if you like)
    2 beaten eggs
    3 tablespoons granulated sweetener.

    Bake for 30-35 minutes at 190c or mk5.

    I don't have an oven, so I bake it in my Remoska cooker.

    I like to eat this warm, with yogurt.
    (It is also nice cold, spread with unsalted butter, but you didn't hear me say that!)

    The other day I fancied some lemon cous cous cake but had run out of lemon curd. Next time I was at the shops I got some, got home, then found I had run out of cous cous!! Dim or what!!

    I just made this for the first time tonight,bland alone but lush with the lemon curd.
    Here's the recipe I used-
    4oz Couscous (not ground) soak in water for 10 mins ,in seperate bowl beat 2 eggs ,1/2 tsp baking powder ,4x sweeteners ,and a muller light of your choice.
    Mix with the cous cous with the other ingredients place in a microwaveable tub and cook for 10 mins.
    Leave to cool cut into slices and serve with 1tsp of lemon curd.(0.5 syns)

    I think we all need to bear in mind that although we are not counting calories this recipe alone is 1380 calories. It is not a recipe for those who find it difficult to lose weight or moan they have STS. Two big Macs are only 980 calories !!!!!






    Remember this is what a lb of fat looks like . . No more moaning "I only lost a pound !!"

    How ??
    The couscous is about 100 cals per oz made up ,my recipe uses 4 oz (400 cals) the muller light is 99 cals (off the top of my head) the sweetener I used is 2cals per tsp (8 cals) eggs 100 cals each ,not sure on the baking powder but can't be much surely??
    Thats 708 by my calculations???
