    I'm suffering with hot cross bun cravings. I'm thinking of trying to make a hot cross cous cous cake but not sure how to go about it. Has anyone else tried this? Was it a disaster? how would I work out the syns for the fruit or could I use a HE for the fruit :confused:

    I've just made the Weetabix cake from the SW website. It smells lovely and has mixed spice in it.

    It's for meeting tonight so haven't tasted it!! Let me know if you want recipe!

    ETA: it's supposed to be a bit like malt loaf, but it might take your HX bun craving away!

    Personally if I had a craving for a hot cross bun, I would have a real one and syn it.
    IMO nothing quite cuts the mustard like the real thing.

    I'd just have the real thing. They average at about 11 syns each.
