Four Sweet Cake Recipes Worth Celebrating
Almost everyone loves cake. Celebrations happen all around us and, if you have blood sugar concerns, it’s easy to feel left out. Cakes are usually sugar-laden and high in carbohydrates. Even though the holidays are over, parties and gatherings continue year-round. We always want to participate in celebrations. That’s why we are sharing four low-carb cake recipes we love!
We frequently find ourselves bringing desserts to parties. It’s great because we know what went into the mix and how it will impact our day. These aren’t low-calorie cakes and should still be treated as an occasional treat, not a staple. They are delicious and won’t upset your blood sugar, but they also won’t help your weight-loss.
We are starting with the classic: vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. Many people write off vanilla as a dull flavor. We disagree. It’s stuck around this long because it’s delicious and perfect for a birthday cake! A slice has 151 calories, almost five grams of protein and 3.7 grams of carbs. Get the recipe.
Red Velvet Cake
Red velvet is a favorite that is always in style. The sharp cider vinegar counters the chocolate flavor and sweetness. This fluffy recipe gets the balance of tastes just right. This cake was an instant hit with us. A slice has 193 calories, six grams of protein and 6.5 grams of carbs. Get the recipe.
This cake is heavy but delicious. We would love to kid ourselves and say it’s healthy as it’s packed with veggies. But, even though it has carrots, it’s not a health food! That doesn’t stop us from adoring it. Allspice, cinnamon, vanilla and nut flours make this a flavor-packed cake! A slice has 207 calories, five grams of protein and five grams of carbs. Get the recipe.
Death by Chocolate Cake
Death by chocolate is a winner for cocoa lovers. We like that this chocolate cake is loaded with chocolate. There is cocoa flavor bursting out of every element. It has the decadent taste we expect from the name but isn’t heavy in sugar! A slice has 252 calories, six grams of protein and five net grams of carbs. Get the recipe.
Reasons to celebrate crop up all the time. Joining in the fun can make you feel happy and involved. Being the person who brings the cake can make you the most popular person at the party. We hope these recipes make an appearance at your next celebration!
