The Best Diabetic Chocolate Cake With Chocolate Frosting

The Best Diabetic Chocolate Cake With Chocolate Frosting

The BEST Diabetic Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting This Diabetic Chocolate Cake recipe is a chocolate lovers dream with it’s rich sweet delicious and moist cake loaded with a rich creamy chocolate frosting. There’s very simple ingredients and very little effort involved to make this cake more often than you plan. When it comes to desserts especially my cakes I’m all for the real deal. My principal is ‘there is nothing like the real thing’. So no low fat, no low sugar or no any low for me. I’d rather eat one good slice of dessert than a couple of low on calorie stuff. Having said that, when it comes to special dietary restrictions or physical intolerance I believe there is a valid reason to do everything possible in terms of low sugar or low fat or no flour. This recipe is based on my knowledge not approved by any medical professional. Some can eat flour while some say no sugar, no flour, because flour converts to sugar eventually. Others can eat a little bit of sugar but no flour. There are some who can have honey instead of sugar. While some say honey is a NO – with a preference to sugar substitute like sweet N low ; while some prefer nothing other than Splenda. Some prefer Agave syrup and nothing else. Anyway, this is my recipe that I use when I need a diabetic cake. I adjust it per customer request. The secret to sweetness to this cake is the diabetic chocolate which has it’s own additions so I don’t have to add much of sugar substitute. A word on Pricing The chocolate used here is not regular chocolate but one that is diabetic approved. Most super markets have a special section that’s dedicated to special diet. You will definitely find a diabetic chocolate in there. Because this is not regular chocolate the price is more, often twice than t Continue reading >>

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 >>

German Chocolate Cake (low-carb, Sugar-free)

German Chocolate Cake (low-carb, Sugar-free)

German Chocolate Cake (low-carb, sugar-free) My husband recently challenged me to make him a Trim Healthy (MAN) German Chocolate Cake with Icing for his upcoming birthday (Ok not till April). I accepted his challenge reluctantly though. I had a couple ideas flashing around my head but I knew it needed 1. to taste amazing 2. be moist 3. the icing had to be spot on. German Chocolate Cake is my husbands favorite. And I have never ever seen one that is ok to eat but you are staying away from sugar and white flour. I think I might have nailed this one! Ok, now that I got that out of the way lets begin. Melt your unsweetened chocolate with the greek yogurt & almond milk (I used 0% Greek Yogurt & Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk to keep the cake part a little lighter because of the almond flour and I wanted to use the more fattening stuff for the icing) in a sauce pan. The greek yogurt was to replace the butter milk but it does not take away from the taste in fact it adds that buttermilk tang! **If you would rather do thisquickly you can simply place the almond milk and chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave for 1 minute.Take out and stir. Microwave 30 seconds at a time longer if you need to. Mixthe greek yogurt into the melted chocolate mixture! It will blend together well until it looks like this: But do not boil, just melt on low heat. Once melted and mixed well, take off the heat. Get your other wet ingredients together. Cream your butter, sweetener, & vanilla. Add your eggs in. Spray two 9 round cake pans, then put a round piece of waxed paper at the bottom & spray again. I use the Organic Coconut Oil cooking spray from Trader Joes. LOVE THAT STUFF!! **If you would rather notdo two separate baking pans just do a9X13 pan but spray well. You wont have to line it if you pla Continue reading >>

Splenda Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Splenda Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

A splendid and sugar free way to ice or frost your bakery treats using Splenda. I put this together after looking at an old recipe I had for chocolate buttercream frosting that used sugar, as well as incorporating some tips for creamier frosting that I have learned since that time. Making this from scratch is much easier and more economical than shopping for sugar-free frosting. I have noticed the main brand for that has started to reduce the variety of offerings anyway, so it is a good time to be less codependent on corporations for our food and put it back in the kitchen where responsibility belongs. This turned out even better than I expected! Not too sweet with a deep rich chocolaty flavor. I dare say I will never bother buying a tub of the other frosting again. I did use a cake mix this time, but I will go for a scratch mix on that next time. I always did like the flour conditioners they put into cake mixes which make them so delightfully soft and tender, but I noticed the types of those in sugar free are disappearing as well. Maybe nobody cares about sugar free? I find that hard to believe. But in any case, if no one bothers to try this recipe it will be a loss to the world, because it is good, and I doubt many could tell the difference between this frosting and any other made from scratch, But I am posting this anyway, if only for myself, and the bucket loads of people I am sure will enjoy this. Forgive the mundane photos- I dont do sweets that often (being diabetic) so my cake decorating skills are a bit rusty. They did taste better than they looked. Ha! This batch makes enough for 1 cake mix if you dont go all bakery mountains of frosting on the cupcakes. If you want them really tall and decorated, I suggest making two batches of this, as the yield is just one Continue reading >>
