    Hi Emski

    looking forward to the 'taste' rating! 1 being the most disgusting thing you have ever eaten and 5 being the most delicious! The trifle base is nearly set - will let you know the results later! XX

    This is the basic recipe but you can add what you want.. I tried banana and it was good.. I think things like sultanas, pineapple, dates etc. This cake needs something added to differ the textures or it could be a bit bland. The flavour of yoghurt can be changed too. I ate mine whilst warm from the oven.



    COUSCOUS CAKE

    113g couscous
    1 egg white
    1 tub mullerlight toffee yogurt
    5tsp sweetener
    Few drops vanilla essence
    150ml boiling water

    Pour the boiling water over the couscous until completely absorbed.
    Meanwhile mix all other ingredients well and the mix into the couscous.
    Pour into a cake tin that's been sprayed with fry light and bake at 180 degrees for 20 mins until firm to the touch.

    Will be getting the ingredients - although not too sure about banana flavour - maybe some sultanas and mixed spice might work well?
