    Oh my word - I am addicted!!!!!

    Pour boiling water over 5 scan bran so it softens, drain and mash.
    Add 2 grated carrots, 3-4 tbsp sweetener, 2 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground all-spice, 1 tsp cinnamon and 28g finely chopped stem ginger.
    Mix well then add 3 beaten eggs.
    Pour into a microwaveable dish (I used a glass Pyrex thing) about 6 inches diameter.
    Recipe says m/w for 15 mins on high but mine came out dry after 14 so next time did it for 10 and was much better.

    Just had some warmed up with fromage frais on - blummin lush


    Edited to add.....9 SYNS for the whole thing!!!!!

    Tastes lovely - I used root ginger not stem and whizzed it in the chopper with the carrots. This also makes it 5 syns (or 0 syns if using a HEB)

    Well worth it :)

    Stem ginger is taken fresh and preserved in sugar syrup. It has a different taste than root ginger which is usually allowed to dry somewhat and is grated or ground and put in to dishes.

    Does it make any difference to the recipe which ginger is used other than syn value?
