Hi, someone asked me if I can make diabetic cakeballs, is that possible? If so does anyone have the recipe for the cake, frosting & dipping chocolate? thanks
i never made diabetic ones but thought about it!
On cakeart.com, they have a sugar free candy melt option. its under "chocolate and candy ingredients". Maybe you can use that as the coating.
As for the cake filling, I would look up some special diabetic ADA approved cake recipes.
as for a binder....hmmm...Not sure if there is diabetic frosting out there! so maybe a liquid coffee creamer binder? You'd have to experament with taste but I'm sure it's possible!
thank you so much for the info! i will look that up!
Pillsbury just came out with a couple of sugar free cake mixes. They use splenda instead and are pretty good. Yellow and Devil's food are all I have found.
There is so much more to diabetic than just removing sugar. Carbs are a big part and carbs are a big part of the cake structure.
Texas Sugar: good point. I checked it out when making cookies for my diabetic granfather - they used sugarfree cake mix as the base and the Pillsbury one was acceptable. The exchange was minimal so worked out but on a larger scale, of course you'd have to pay careful attention to the exchanges.
Google Diabetic cake mixes/frostings. There are a couple of mix brands out there and a ton of recipes. Again, paying attention to the exchange. Something to keep in mind with recipies: Fruit Juice = fructos = sugar conversion.
My grandma was diabetic for years. We never did anything special for her when it came to desserts. She was always one of those, if she wanted a treat she'd have it, and give up other things to make up for it.
