Delicious Diabetic Birthday Cake Recipe
What is it about Birthday cakes that makes them so special and delicious? It’s just 2-3 layers of sponge cake and some frosting on top. To me, they’re my favorite ones.
I guess these kinds of desserts are more about nostalgia. I still remember blowing the candles in the presence of my loved ones. Of all the childhood memories one may have, blowing the candles on your birthday cake will always be one of them.
This amazing Diabetic Birthday Cake Recipe is super easy to make, uses regular ingredients and everybody will love it.
I made it last night and gave it to my husband and my in-laws, they were drooling and complimenting on how great it tasted. When I told them that this cake was sugar-free they couldn’t believe it. Of course, they went for seconds.
I can imagine adjusting your diet must be hard since everything has so much ADDED sugar! including things one may not think of, for instance: spaghetti sauce, bread, yogurt (even the non-flavored Greek one), BBQ Sauce, dried fruits, etc.
This Diabetic Birthday Cake Recipe is so delicious because it has a spongy and very moist vanilla cake and a fudgy and addicting chocolate fudge frosting that is finger-licking good.
Last week I made a Diabetic Lasagna Recipe that would go great as the main course of your party.
I used Swerve sweetener which is a great sugar substitute for the sponge cake part. You can also use Splenda baking blend or any of the usual sugar replacements you are used to cooking with.
This Diabetic Birthday Cake Recipe is on the small side. It’s only 6 inches in diameter, which is perfect for a small gathering. If you are expecting a large party, simply double the recipe and use a 9″ mold.
