  1. Hi, I made the cakelets today. Everybody loved them. One question, did I have to cook the couscous before mixing, I did not, some parts were crunchy, but, still,it was a hit. Thank you very much, Larisa.

    • Hi, Sofya, no I didnt cook the cous cous, the veggis and yogurt proveded enough liquid for it to absorb, and it wasn’t crunchy.
      I’m glad that your family liked them 🙂
