What is diabetic-friendly baking?

A diabetic-friendly cake is one that tastes delicious but has minimal effect on your blood sugar levels. It is important to watch your sugar intake and starchy carbohydrates in cakes and desserts, so you can enjoy the best part of the meal.

Ingredients to make sugar-free cakes

To make a true diabetic-friendly cake you will need low-carb flour and a sugar-free sweetener.

Some diabetic cakes use a regular cake recipe with wheat flour, gluten-free flour, whole wheat flour, or all-purpose flour, But these starchy traditional flours will raise your blood sugar, whether you have diabetes or not.

You’ll also see many diabetic cake recipes in magazines that use natural sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup, but all of these natural sweeteners are still sugar.

READ MORE: How everyday carbs affect your blood sugar (and why organic sugar and honey are still sugar).

Best diabetic sweeteners

The best sugar-free sweetener is the one that tastes like real sugar, has zero calories, and will have minimal impact on your blood glucose levels. You can even make your own sugar blend with erythritol and a few drops of stevia.

TOP TIP: Always taste your cake batter or cookie dough before baking in case you need to add more sweetener to please your sweet tooth.

The most common sugar substitutes are:

You can find these low-carb flours in most local grocery stores or buy from my Amazon keto store or iHerb (with worldwide delivery).

EXPERT TIP: Avoid gluten-free flours. They are made from high-starch ingredients such as potato starch, tapioca starch, and rice flour.

Diabetic baking FAQ

What sweetener is the best for diabetic cakes?

Choose a sweetener that tastes like real sugar such as erythritol, monk fruit sweetener, or allulose. Avoid maltitol which can often spike blood sugar levels and any artificial sweeteners that make your gut grumble.

How to make sugar-free cool whip?

The most requested whipped topping has to be keto cool whip. Whip 1 cup of heavy cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form. In another bowl, whip 4 oz cream cheese with monk fruit sweetener then spoon into the whipped cream and beat again. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to 3 days. It’s quick to make and without the extra cost of heading to the grocery store.

What kind of cake can a diabetic have?

Cakes that have been made using low-carb flour and sugar-free sweeteners are the best for anyone who is on a sugar-free diet or who has trouble managing their blood glucose.

Does low sugar mean sugar-free?

No, when a brand or recipe says low sugar, it generally suggests the recipe has lower sugar than their regular recipe or they used a different natural sugar such as honey. This is often called confusion marketing.

Can a diabetic eat cream cheese?

Most cream cheese has minimal sugar, but always check ingredient labels and nutritional information. Avoid cream cheese with sweet chili sauce or high-sugar sauces. Lite or low-fat cream cheese often has added carbs or starch to make it tasty and palatable.

Can diabetics eat sugar-free cake?

You need to read the ingredients to make sure it is a true sugar-free cake. Some sugar-free cakes don’t use refined sugar but use honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar instead in the naive and incorrect belief that it is sugar-free.

Why do you put coffee in chocolate cake?

Coffee is the secret ingredient in many of my coffee cakes. A small amount of coffee actually enhances the chocolate flavor. So next time you make a chocolate cake, add some espresso powder, espresso shot, or dissolved instant coffee and taste the difference.

Is vanilla extract sugar-free?

Most brands of vanilla extract and vanilla essence are sugar-free but always check nutrition labels for any hidden sugar or change in formulation since you last bought it.

How to make a small low-carb birthday cake?

With each recipe above, the recipe card can be dialed up or down so you can set how many servings you want. The ingredients will be magically calculated for you. Alternatively, you can make regular birthday cake layers, and freeze one cake layer for later so any leftover cake doesn’t tempt you.

What are the main differences in diabetic-friendly baking?

Diabetic-friendly baking helps to keep your blood sugar stable by reducing all sugar, starch, and net carbs.

How can I make a dairy-free cake?

In many cake recipes, you can swap butter for coconut oil, cream for coconut cream, and milk for almond milk. Always read the recipe notes before making too many changes.

Can I swap almond flour for all-purpose flour in my regular birthday cake recipe?

While almond flour is the most common low-carb flour, it does not behave like wheat flour and cake flour because there is no gluten to make it soft and bouncy. Almond flour cakes generally use more eggs and baking powder to make them light and fluffy.

Can I swap almond flour for coconut flour?

These low-carb flours have completely different baking qualities so cannot be directly swapped easily. I suggest only using the flour the cake recipe recommends. But you can use these low-carb flour conversion charts which may help you.

How can I tell when my cake is cooked?

Press a clean knife, fork, or toothpick inserted into the center of the cake. If it comes out clean without any raw cake batter, your cake is cooked.

Which fruit can diabetics eat?

Most tropical high sugar fruit should be avoided such as melon, pineapple, mango, and grapes. Dried fruit is also high in sugar because it was whole fresh fruit with all the fruit sugars, but with the water removed. One handful of raisins is equal to a few bunches of grapes.

Always choose tart fruit and low-sugar berries. Take a look at these sugar is in fruit charts.

Can you eat diabetic cakes on the keto diet?

If the cakes have been made with keto flour and keto sweeteners (and the net carbs fit within your daily carb limit), then go for it.
