DIY PINspiration: Diabetic Cakes

I haven't baked in a while and feel like I've lost a little bit of my inspiration for baking as I've been eating out a lot more lately (lets blame the husband!). This weeks DIY post is diabetic cakes as I think I need a little inspiration and a few good ideas to bake a really nice but diabetic friendly cake. 

So what have I found?

Chocolate and Almond Cake

Lately I've been really enjoying cooking with almond meal/flour instead of normal flour. I'm lucky I really like the taste of almonds and they are good for low carbohydrate diets too. 

You can find the recipe here

Lemon Cake

Okay so like many people, I love a good lemon drizzle cake. This cake, similar to the one above, doesn't contain regular flour so it's very low in carbs as well. The plain white flour has been replaced with soy flour, something I'm quite intrigued about trying. 

You can find the recipe here.

What do you think to my recipes?
Do you think you might try a cake with a flour replacement?

  1. Mmm both of these look great! Lemon cake is my all time favourite cake but the chocolate and almond one looks just as delicious. I wouldn't mind a slice of both with a cup of tea right now!xx
