Are you feeling that early spring feeling too? We immediately took the opportunity to offer you one of the first recipes with a spring-like flavour: couscous cakes with a heart of jam! The recipe is by our food blogger Antonella Falce!


  • 200 ml milk
  • 200 g of couscous Martino
  • 60g of sugar
  • Vanillin
  • Lemon peel
  • Blackberry jam
  • Oil at the taste.


Pour the milk into the saucepan, add sugar and vanillin, and bring it to the boil. Stir, turn off the flame and add the couscous. Let it rehydrate for about 5 minutes covered with a cloth.

Let it cool down, pour it into a bowl and add an egg. Stir to obtain a homogeneous mixture.

Sprinkle the ramekins with oil and pour in part of the mixture.

Shape the pie shell with a spoon, pour a heart of your favourite jam in the centre and close with the remaining couscous. Bake the pies at 180° for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with icing sugar before serving. Your couscous cakes are ready!
