    Hi All,

    Just wanted to share this receipe with you and double check that I have got the syns values correct as man these cakes are scrummy! And only 4 syns for the whole cake on EE and Green!

    Mix 100g cous cous with 125ml of water (free)
    Then add 2 eggs (free), 2tbsp artifical sweetner (free), plenty of mixed spice for flavour (free), 2 tsp vanilla essence (free), 2tbsp of mince meat (4 syns) .. I sometime add 3 tbsp to give a bit more flavour but still the whole cake only has 6 syns!!

    Mix it all together and then stick in a tin in the oven (200c) for 20-25 minutes.

    Enjoy them hot or cold, taste delicious!

    You can swap the mincemeat for nutella (8 syns a cake) or low sugar jam .. no need to include the mixed spices and vanilla essence for these ones :)

    Enjoy! so simple, so tasty and low syns!

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but SW say if you use things like cous cous as a substitute for flour then you need to syn them. So the cous cous would be synned at the red day rate, meaning you are probably just as well having the real thing :-(
