Did you know that Preacher Cake (sometimes called Amish Preacher Cake) is a simple cake recipe usually made with pineapple, coconut, pecans and a cream cheese frosting... and as the story goes, this quick cake recipe was one that the housewife could throw together when she learned last minute that the preacher was coming!
It is thought to be related to the Hummingbird cake which is a banana-pineapple spice cake common in the Southern United States of America. Ingredients for this cake would include flour, sugar, salt, vegetable oil, ripe banana, pineapple, cinnamon, pecans, vanilla extract, eggs, and leavening agent. It is often served with cream cheese frosting.
Now, the original cake recipes can work out at approx. 40g carbs per serving which would cause blood sugar levels to rise … not good if you are diabetic! So what you could do is to make a lower carb version, this recipe suggestion works out at just 2 net carbs per serving … and thus does not cause such a spike in blood sugar readings.
Here are the ingredients you will need to make four servings:
1/2 cups almond flour
1/3 teaspoons baking soda
Pinch baking powder
Pinch to teaspoon cinnamon (depending on taste)
1/3 cup swerve (sweetener)
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 tablespoons Sugar Free Pineapple syrup
1/2 tablespoon Brown Sugar Cinnamon Syrup
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/3 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, divided
1.5 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cups swerve (sweetener)
… I'll definitely need a cup of tea too,
although I could make you coffee if you'd prefer !
All the best Jan
