    Apple crumble and the spiced banana have 2.5 pts per slice, so does one I didn't mention, the pineapple and coconut loaf. All the rest have 3.5 pts per slice

    They are a bit really, but can assure you it tastes quite nice, and a bit like bread pudding. :D

    Made another one last night, and took to work today, needless to say its all gone!! LOL.

    Trouble is the cake is too nice, and its hard to resist it.

    Ingredients seem strange, but it does sound nice. Unfortunately I'm not sure I could stop at one slice, and 12 points a loaf seems a bit much. Hmmm, I might give it ago at some stage though! Definately seems interesting.

    For some reason it's so much easier to have one small serving, then a small piece of a large serving (if that makes sense). I don't know why.

    I know what you mean. I can have a box of brownies lying there and will be happy having one, if however there was a cake lying out, I know it would be shouting my name

    I have to agree with you both on this. :( The cake is really, really nice. That is the problem!

    Last night after it was cooked I ate 2 slices :eek: :eek: :eek: even though I hadnt got the points!! Plus I had already had a cream cake at work.!!!

    So started today knowing I had a deficit :eek: (always a bad motivator.. needless to say today pointing has gone from bad to worse!!)

    So todays a write off and tomorrow a new start before one bad day becomes 2, then 3 then 4.!

    Agreed with hubby not to make any more cakes, as I just cant leave them alone.!! :cry:

    Am starting to notice what foods trigger me off !! and its most certainly, sweet, carby foods, the more I have the more I want... :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: . The odd few sweets have been sneaking into my daily food and these have been increasing and have been craving them more and more. Even got the moodies :mad: . Poor hubby has been getting the brunt of it.

    So tomorrow...NO MORE NONESENSE! got to kick the bad carbs and get back in control.

    Starting the WW Wendy plan to see how varying the daily points works out. ! Will log and point everything up for interest.

    Wish me luck.

    Glad I'm not the only one who caves in with the carbs...I made fairy cakes thinking I'd just have the one, if it hadn't been for hubby and daughter I'd have polished off all 12.

    Must stop drinking tea as this is a real trigger for sweeties for me!

    Good luck with the Wendie plan - Joe
