I bloody hope it's free. I love the stuff. Just about to make some now. yum yum x

*** Di ***

I would like to add that I eat it as a meal now rather than an extra.;)

So I think I can eat it free - because what is the difference if I got some cous cous ready and added something else ??? No difference, I thinks!!!!

Mind you, if I was eating tons of the stuff and the weight wasn't shifting then I might think differently!!!!!


I still haven't got around to making this as i don't have an oven proof cake tin...
can someone bump the receipe for me? xx


Slimming for my children
I have a recipe for one version of it in my website link at bottom of my sig hun. Not done the one with mullers sorry.

*** Di ***

I think its

4oz Cous Cous soaked in just enough boiling water to barely cover it
4 tablespoons Sweetener
1/2 teaspon Baking Powder
2 Eggs
Muller Yoghurt (use a strong flavour one - although I used Aldi Wholegrain Yoghurt)

Mix together.
Cook 180o in the oven.
How simple is that??

I also added some mixed spice.

My favourite alltime is Mincemeat Cous Cous when I add 4 level tablespoons Mincemeat - think its 2 syns per tablespoon off the top of my just woken up head - which makes the whole cake 8 syns!

The yoghurt one is completely free and makes a lovely sweet, stodgy lunch.

(I'm off to Wroxham today for a week so won't be around until we return)


I've just done a Toffee one but added a eating apple finely chopped into the in the oven now... will let you know what its like lol

Hi Ladies,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Cous Cous cake is NOT free :sigh:

Louise found this out the other day in class. The consultant said that, you have to syn it at the 'Red' day value, which is 5 syns per 28g. It's something to do with using the cous cous as flour...

Maybe check with your consultant and I'll do the same x


Is so very nearly there!

Sorry,not according to the books, cous cous ground and used as flour is 5 syns, whole grain dry, free on green, 5 on red, cooked 1.5 on red, free on green. All 28g
So it is free on green as long as you don't grind it. Tried it today, gorgeous.:eat:
