    they are 1/2 syn because of the baking powder.....so you could eat it all if you want :)

    i ate most of yesterdays last night! and made another today...this time i added lots of lemon juice and zest and i baked it in the oven for 40 mins to make it brown, and it was lovely!! reminded me of lemon drizzle cake :) i just cant stop eating it

    im not sure but i think i read that the cous cous cake does have syns in it because the cous cous is used as a flour substitute? does anyone know?

    Have also been told that if anything like polenta, cous cous etc is used as a flour substitute then it has to be synned. Although considering that the cous cous is cooked before hand in this case and just mixed in with the other ingredients it might be free? Wish I knew!

    Hi there, I just had this conversation with our consultant tonight! I've been wanting to try the polenta muffins but wasnt sure if it was free or not.
    He said you only need to syn the polenta if its ground (fine like flour) in its wholegrain state like for the muffin recipe on here its free.
    I'm sure the cous cous would be the same as your not actually grinding it down as a flour substitue and it's still free when you use it in savoury recipes!
    Hope this helps

    ok the verdict, they are gorgeous, not as sweet as a normal cake but the texture is unbelievably, ive had 4 buns (oops!) dipped in natural yogurt and WOW cant believe thats diet food! got 8 left gunna take some to work to snack on over the next 2 days. well recommended. i did them im paper bun cases and the outside layer of cous cous did stick to the case a bit but i just scraped it off with my teeth lol!
