Diabetic Cake H E L P!!!!!!!!

Diabetic Cake H E L P!!!!!!!!

OK Someone saw the purple and blue polka dot cake w/ a bow on it (in my photo's) and said she wanted a cake like that. Then she asks if I can make it Diabetic... I've never made a diabetic cake before. SOOOO I always use a doctored cake mix - will this still be ok? Also how do I make the bc more diabetic friendly? And HELLO 2lbs of sugar in the MMF - is there a fondant for Diabetics that tastes ok? Is there anything else I should be worried about PLEASE HELP - this lady has been waiting a day already since CC was down I had no luck searching the internet on my own I'm not sure what to tell you, but I'm going to make my first one this week for my Dad, so here is my plan. I have a good carrot cake recipe from Betty Crocker that calls for 1 1/2 cups of sugar, so I'm going to substitute that with "Splenda for Baking" (I think you have use half the amount of the recipe). The recipe that they had in Splenda's website for carrot cake had soooo many more calories and sugar it was ridiculous. Total insuling shock. As far as the icing, I'm planning on making the "diabetic icing" from the recipe section in this website. It says that it can be colored and piped. If your cake calls for fondant, I guess you could cover the cake first with the sugar-free one, and then cover with fondant, and tell the person that the fondant is not sugar-free so don't eat it (a lot of people peel it off anyway). OK so if I bought a regular dh box mix and I typically put pudding in there - so if I got sugar free pudding instead = do you think that would be ok???? Also there were a couple of diabetic icings in the recipe section which one would be best? Whip Whipping Cream in cold bowl until stiff (chill paddle too). Add softened cream cheese, pudding mix and Splenda. Mix on medium speed until well blen Continue reading >>

A Basic And Easy Sugar Free Yellow Cake Recipe

A Basic And Easy Sugar Free Yellow Cake Recipe

At some time or another, we need to use a Sugar Free Yellow Cake Recipe This is the cake that we make when we want to bake a cake for a birthday, celebration, or simply for someone special. After all, not everyone wants chocolate or 'Devils's Food' cake all of the time. A Basic and Easy Sugar Free Yellow Cake Recipe Yellow cake is that standard cake that we have all enjoyed at some time or another. It seems as if we always ate frosted yellow cake cupcakes at birthday parties as a kid. This is because the yellow cake is the cake that most everyone can agree upon. It is the vanilla ice cream of the cake world. What I like about yellow cake is that it can be dressed up in so many ways. Unlike a chocolate cake, a yellow cake can be paired with any frosting. You can also decorate a yellow cake easily with colorful items like flowers and fruit. Thankfully, a yellow cake can be made without added sugar. I like to say that it is possible to have your cake and eat it sugar free too. However, even though this cake has no added sugar in it, this cake still tastes pretty good. This is a basic yellow cake recipe that has a sugar alternative rather than sugar in it. I use Splenda in my basic sugar free yellow cake. You are welcome to use the sugar alternative of your choice as long as you use the equivalent to sugar amount. To make a layer cake, use two 8" round cake pans. I've recently discovered silicon cake pans. They are super cheap and so easy to use. Cleaning the silicon pans is a breeze as well. Silicon cake pans can be easily found on Amazon. However, you can use the cake pan of your choice. Frosting this cake can also be done sugar free. I have a couple of great recipes for cake on this site. There is a sugar free chocolate buttercream recipe. A sugar free cocoa icing recipe Continue reading >>

Bunyan's Home Made Diabetic Cake Mix

Bunyan's Home Made Diabetic Cake Mix

Place shortening in large bowl of an electric mixer and beat 1 minute at medium speed. Scrape down the sides and bottom of bowl. Add 3 3/4 cups of splenda/sugar blend, 3/4 cup at a time, beating 1 minute after each addition. Add about 2 cups of the dry ingredients to the shortening mixture and beat 30 seconds on medium speed. If you have a heavy-duty, large-capacity mixer, continue adding and beating, 1 cup at a time, until all ingredients are incorporated. If not, scrape the shortening mixture into the remaining dry ingredients and blend by hand with a pastry cutter or two knives until it resembles cornmeal. Divide into 6 equal packages (each should be about 3- 1 / 2 cups when spooned lightly into a measure). Place in plastic food-storage bags, pushing out air before sealing tightly. Keep in freezer. Allow to come to room temperature before mixing. For YELLOW CAKE: Add 3 eggs, 3 / 4 cup milk, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract and any optional ingredients (see below). Beat 1 minute at low speed; increase to medium speed and beat 2 minutes, until batter is smooth. (Skim milk and egg substitute may be used.) For 1 WHITE CAKE: Use 4 egg whites in place of the whole eggs, and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract For 1 SPICE CAKE: Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 / 2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract and 1 / 4 teaspoon ground cloves. For CARROT CAKE: Add 3 cups of shredded carrots with the above ingredients For 1 CITRUS FLAVORED CAKE: Replace vanilla with 1 / 2 teaspoon orange or lemon extract and add 1 teaspoon grated zest.

Sugar-free Pineapple Lush Cake

Sugar-free Pineapple Lush Cake

Thanks so much for visiting Rose Bakes! I hope you're inspired to bake a cake, decorate something fun, or try a new recipe! Sign up for FREE updates in your inbox or in your feed reader to keep up with all the latest things I'm sharing! Happy Baking! This Sugar-Free Pineapple Lush Cake has been one of the most popular posts on my blog lately so it seemed like a great time to update it! Originally I created this cake for a lady in our church who had just come out of surgery. I was happy to do it, but also a bit nervous because she’s diabetic. After a bit of digging through some old cookbooks, I decided to make this Sugar-Free Pineapple Lush Cake. Only one other time have I baked a sugar-free cake and it wasn’t all that impressive, so this time I wanted to try something different. After I first published this recipe, I had several complaints about it not being actually “sugar-free” since pineapple has sugar. That is true. I supposed I should’ve noted that there’s no added or processed sugar – only the sugar naturally occurring in the pineapple, which is acceptable for most diabetics in moderation. If you need something that’s absolutely sugar-free, then this might not be the cake for you! Anyway, I was short on time and limited by my tiny local grocery store – I decided to go the easy route and not attempt anything from scratch, so this recipe was perfect. Here are the main things you’ll need… Sugar-Free Pineapple Lush Cake Don’t overlook the fact that you’ll also need eggs, oil, and water for the cake mix. After you have everything ready to go, it’s time to BAKE! First, just followed the box directions exactly. That’s pretty easy, huh? I have in my head a few variations I’d to try, but since I was short on time, I kept it simple. After it Continue reading >>

Sugar-free Lemon Cake Recipe

Sugar-free Lemon Cake Recipe

This semi-homemade sugar-free lemon cake is simple, delicious, and comes together in all of about 40 minutes. Make sure you hide the cake box and everyone will think it took you hours to make. For better portion control, divide the batter among 16 mini Bundt pans. If you want to add a finishing touch that's pleasing to both the eye and tongue, top the cooled lemon cakes with Sugar-Free Strawberry Sauce when serving. It'sa simple berry sauce that can be made with a lot less sugar than you might think. It pairs wonderfully with this lemon cake, an angel food cake , or key lime pie . Food seems to taste better with fresh-squeezed lemon juice rather than bottled lemon juice. Remember to wash and thoroughly dry the lemons before zesting. As for juicing a lemon, there are several techniques, but these two are the most popular: Using firm pressure, roll a room-temperature lemon on a counter several times before slicing in half and squeezing out the juice with a reamer, by hand or with an electric juicer, making sure no seeds get in the juice. Microwave a room-temperature lemon on high for 25 to 30 seconds before slicing and extracting the juice as above. 1 box Pillsbury Sugar-Free Yellow Cake mix 1/4 cup strawberry preserves (sugar-free) Heat the oven to 350 F.
