    Have been following some of the threads with interest regarding whether this is free on green days or not!

    Setting up a poll to see what opinion everyone is coming to.

    I really like the cous cous cake :D

    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 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)

    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

    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:
