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.

In about five minutes you can mix a few basic ingredients...
then enjoy a single serving of 'sweet', low carb goodness. No oven needed for this recipe, it's 'cooked' in the microwave!
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
