Hi donna, I love this cake but...... my consultant gets a bit ratty with me when I mention this. She said when cous cous is free, it is to be eaten as part of a meal and not as an "extra" eg in a cake. I think the cake is something like 6 syns or so and you could eat the whole cake within your daily allowance, but the amount of calories consumed is a lot.

I don't mean to put a downer on this but if your consultant is anything like mine then don't mention it!!!

You can also make a lemon chick pea cake too by mashing the chick peas but she has the same response to that one!!

Do you still make and eat it and lose?

I make it sometimes on a weekend and share it but I wouldn't do it routinely. I can't just have one slice you see.........

If it doesn't affect your weight loss then I wouldn't worry but the "official" SW line is don't do it!! (well, at my class anyway and I wouldn't argue with my consultant!!!)

Now our consultant is great and advises to have the cous cous cake (within moderation of course!) rather than the chocolate or crisp!

I love it too and usually make 2 a week, even dh and the kids like it!

In the past it never affected my weight loss but then this is my first week of re-join and I have made one cake (eaten over a few days!) so will see!

If you need the recipe, let me know, I will dig it our when I get home!
