When I first couldn’t eat sugar, I never dreamed of eating sugar free cakes that actually tasted good.
But it turns out, that once I created my sugar free philosophy, that I can have almost anything. Even cakes! Let me remind you about my philosophy again!
“Substitute each part of a recipe you can’t eat, until you have created a safe, alternative recipe”.
So why don’t we try to understand the basics of cakes, so that we can develop our own Sugar Free Cakes!
What Makes A Cake A Cake?
The most basic portions of a cake involve:
- Fat (such as butter or margarine)
- A Liquid (like milk, water, or fruit juice)
- Yeast or Baking Powder (or some other leavening agent to make it rise)
If a recipe calls for milk we can replace it with alternate milks (if you are lactose intolerant or are allergic to milk) such as rice milk, almond milk, or soy milk.
Those are the main things most people have problems with.
Some recipes will be gluten free, but I’ll mark those down in the recipe.
