Coconut Date Couscous Cake
1 1/4 cup coconut milk (I made my own using this video as my guide)
3/4 cup couscous
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup shredded coconut (I actually used the leftover pulp from making the coconut milk)
2 Tbsp butter
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and remove from the heat. Let sit 10-15 minutes. Pour into a small dish (about 1 quart size), press down to form a cake like form, refrigerate at least 1 hour. Carefully invert onto a plate or cut into pieces and serve.
This was plenty sweet for me, but if you want more, try drizzling some maple syrup or fruit syrup over the top.
