why do you have to bake mincemeat cous cous cake?

Maybe because mincemeat gets really hot, really fast in the microwave, and as microwaves cook food from the inside out, it might make the cake explode or something!

I make a weetabix cake with mincemeat and cook it in the microwave so I'm sure it will be ok.....give it a whirl!

All I do is mush 2 weetabix biscuits (1 x HE B) in some boiled water. Be careful not to make it too 'wet'
Sprinkle in some sweetener to your taste
Add some mixed spice, again, to your own taste
Mix in 1 or 2 tblsp of mincemeat (1 tblsp = 2 syns)
Lastly, thoroughly mix in 1 egg.
You should have what resembles a cake mixture.

Bung in the microwave until cooked!(a few minutes, I just keep on checking)

Tastes lovely, just like bread pudding.
