Weetabix Chocolate Cake

Well this is lovely with a cuppa.
I miss my chocolate fix like anything and last night we had a taster session at SW and a girl made the chocolate cake from the SW website.
This is an adaption of it as I really need chocolate today and dont have bran flakes in.

28 syns for the lot (thanks to the guys who worked this out for me I had it at 34.5, I am crap at maths) so worked it out as 3.5 syns per slice.

x5 weetabix (16 syns)
x6 heaped tsp of highlights (12 syns)
250ml boiling water
2 eggs
half a cup of sweetner.

Break the weetabix up and add the hot water.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix till non lumpy and then pop in the microwave in a microwavable dish and serve into 8 pieces.

yum! its so choclaty that even I the queen of chocolate only needed one piece for a chocolate fix.
