Low Carb (Mug) Cakes - Suitable for diabetics and non-diabetics

I think most readers would agree that diabetes and cakes doesn’t sound like a great combination, as both flour and sugar will raise blood sugar levels and that is the last thing a diabetic wants or needs.

However, there are sugar substitutes that work quite well in most recipes and there are many different low carb flours and flour substitutes which may be used.

Low carb cakes can be delicious and do not raise blood sugar levels as a regular cake would, so if you are a diabetic and want to treat yourself to a cake you could consider trying a low carb cake recipe. In fact many non-diabetics, or those wishing to reduce sugar and carbs intake can enjoy these cakes too. 


Raspberry Cream Cheese Mug Cupcake : Low Carb and Delicious
Are you a fan of mug cakes? They're very popular in the low carb, keto world.

then enjoy a single serving of 'sweet', low carb goodness.

Tiramisu Mug Cake
this sugar free low carb cake is made in minutes and tastes just like traditional tiramisu,
but without all the carbs and sugar!
nice for a special occasion, or perhaps if you feel like a treat
see more details/recipe here

The above recipes use 'low carb flour' and if you are just starting a low carb diet/lifestyle you may feel confused with which low carb flours to use. You may never have used any of them before and how to use them properly can be daunting. Low carb flours do not behave like wheat flour, and how to use them in your old regular high carb recipes is a common question. Of course you may also be interested, or want to know more about them. If that is the case then Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' site has a very good guide, and you can read it here

If you may be looking for more low carb cake recipe ideas, why not consider one or all of these here

Dear reader, you will find a variety of articles and recipe ideas within this blog, and not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan
