Weetabix Cake

I've seen a few different variations going round of a Weetabix Cake so finally decided to give one of them a go as I'm getting bored of using my B choice on the same things.
This recipe is for 2 B choices so half of the cake is your B choice for the day or if your doing SP you could have it all. There is also 7 syns worth of dried fruit (50g) so 3.5 syns per half.

Ingredients
4 weetabix
1 muller light
50g dried fruit
2 eggs
1 tbsp of sweetener (optional)

Method
crush Weetabix into fine powder
add muller light of your choice (I used banana and custard)
add eggs and sweetener and combine then add dried fruit and stir through
put into loaf tin and cook for 20 minutes
I then turned it over and cooked a further 20 minutes as it looked soggy
leave to cool then slice and serve.


Half of the cake is your B choice + 3.5 syns

Slow Cooker Lasagne

So I finally took the plunge and tried this Slow Cooker recipe for Lasagne that can be found here on the Two Chubby Cubs website


I tried a little bit last night and it tastes amazing, I'm excited for tea later. I made it for 4 large portions and it is your A choice (for the Mozzarella) and 1 syn for the extra cheese I sprinkled on top, but if you miss this off then it is just your A choice.
I definitely need to try some more of their recipes because each one I have tried so far I've absolutely loved!

SW Quiche

So I tried making little quiches at the start of my journey and I hated them. I couldn't stand the eggyness or the texture so they all went in the bin... almost 2 years down the line and I know my tastes have changed so I thought i'd make them again using the flavoured cottage cheeses you can now get.

Ingredients
1 small tub of fat free cottage cheese (with sweet chilli & grilled pepper)
6 eggs
Ham (sliced up)
Onions (sliced)
Mushrooms (sliced)
Chopped tomatoes


Method
Fry off mushrooms and onions and place in moulds
Combine eggs with cottage cheese and season
Add ham to moulds
Pour over egg/cheese mix
Add tomatoes to top if wanted
Cook on 180 for 40 mins
As easy as that!>
