If you, like myself and my daughter, are choc-a-holics, then a chocolate cake is likely your go-to cake of choice. Turning this into cupcake-format means that there is an imposed portion limit, which, at least in my case, is welcome! And so Alice and I did a collaborative chocolate cupcake bake this morning. The recipe […]
Sometimes in life, it is satisfying just to do the simple things well. So this afternoon, Alice and I decided to try baking and decorating a batch of humble vanilla cupcakes, with a diabetic-friendly twist of course! We used my ever-reliable vanilla cupcake recipe, but with a few key changes; we swapped the caster sugar […]
One of my Christmas presents from my very lovely partner Adam was a Mozzarella cheese making kit, containing sachets of citric acid, Rennet, salt and a thermometer, with a view to producing our own cheese for our weekly Pizza-Sundays. So, on New Years Day, I decided to give it a whirl. To my great surprise, […]
This is not strictly speaking a post about a diabetic sweet-treat, but I thought it was still worth-while sharing with the world as this is a fully homemade meal and thus is easily carb-counted. Additionally, in our modern world of fast-food outlets and microwave meals, it always feels special and healthy to create something from […]
Mince pies, known as Minty pies in our house since Alice’s attempt to pronounce their name at the tender age of 20 months, are one of Alice’s favourite Christmas bakes. I like to make my own sweet shortcrust pastry, using a diabetic-sugar-substitute in place of castor sugar. I didn’t have my rolling pin handy, so […]
As promised; I’m back to diabetic-baking! I thought it would be fun to revive a classic to start with; carrot cake is one of my most favourite bakes using normal sugar, and it translates quite nicely into a diabetic-friendly version. It can be baked in several round tins and turned into a tiered cake, but […]
Those of you who are keeping up with my blog will have noticed that I haven’t posted anything for a while. There are a few reasons for this, both baking and non-baking-related! And as this is a blog about baking, I will regale you with the baking-related reason; a foray into the world of gift-box […]
Since writing my previous blog post, I have tried baking diabetic-friendly strawberry cupcakes twice more, and both times I was not satisfied with the result. Thus, I decided that it would be wise to take a breather before getting too frustrated with myself, and changed to a different bake. I switched to attempting diabetic-blueberry muffins […]
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again” is how the motto goes I believe, and I am nothing if not determined. Thus I am at the second of the three tries for the diabetic-friendly strawberry cupcake! I adapted the recipe slightly, decreasing the ratio of wet:dry ingredients and increasing the bake […]
My diabetic-friendly baking has been put on the back-burner a little bit recently, as I have been working on perfecting my full-sugar macaron recipe. However, today I am back to my first-love; diabetic-friendly baking. I’ve tried adapting my strawberry cupcake recipe to be more diabetic-friendly, to mixed success. Previous experience has taught me that my […]
