    Made this yesterday and its the best cake substitute I have had!

    1 cup bulgur wheat( or couscous)
    FF yoghurt 1 cup
    Fresh cherries 10 (not glace)
    Sultanas half a cup
    sweeteners to taste
    vanilla essence
    2 eggs
    Pinch of cinnamon

    Ok prepare the bulgur by putting in a bowl. In 1 cup of boiling water, place your sweteeners( i used 5) and a few drops of van essence, add to bulgur, then leave the bulgur to fluff up.
    Meanwhile chop the cherries, and add them to the FF yoghurt. Leave till the yoghurt goes purple.
    When bulgur is ready add the 2 beaten eggs, cinnamon, yoghurt cherry mix and the sultanas.
    Place in a microwave bowl and micro for 10 minutes, leave a minute
    then another 5 minutes.
    I lined my cake tin with paper but dont think its necessary as it didnt stick.

    Reckon you could use a muller lite, i just cant buy them here. And if you want it mega low syn, use less sultanas :) Im thinking you only need to syn the sultanas as the cherries in this are fresh not glace :)
    Made 6 hefty slices.

    Sorry to bear bad news but you would also need to syn the bulger wheat/cous cous as it is being used as a flour substitute (5 syns per 28g)

    And also the cherries as they are being cooked and yes of course the sultanas which are fairly high in syns

    Yeah if I count 'a cup' as 240g:


    1 cup bulgur wheat = 43 syns
    Fresh cherries 10 = about 2 syns cooked
    Sultanas half a cup = 17 syns

    So total 62 syns or about 10 syns per hefty slice :(
