I looked under the Diabetic Cakes section in the recipes here, but not really anything for chocolate cake. Does anybody have a tried and true recipe for diabetic chocoalte cake/frosting?

I've used the recipe from Diane's Desserts and it was pretty good. I used it w/ a diabetic cream cheese frosting. I'm not at home right now, but when I am I'll post the recipe. My bf's uncle is a diabetic and he likes to use carob instead of chocolate. I tried making him a cake w/ it but could not stand it, it was pretty bitter tasting to me! You should be able to find it at most health food stores.

Here's the recipe I used:

1 pink whipping cream
1 box sugar free pudding
16oz cream cheese
3 tbsp splenda

Whip whipping cream in a cold bowl until stiff (chill paddle too). Add softened cream cheese, pudding mix, and splenda. Mix on medium until well blended.

I tried to find it, but I can't remember where I got the recipe from. I thought that it had too much cream cheese, so I made another batch but left out the cream cheese and mixed it with the first one. I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and added some vanilla and unsweetened cocoa. It made enough to frost and decorate a 2 layer 8-in cake and have TONS left over. If I had to do it again I would have just used half of the cream cheese that it asked for, but that's just me. Hope this helps!!!
