maybe you can try substituting the sugar in the recipe with sugar free sub like splenda. also, search the web if you dont have a recipe and see what comes up.

maybe some of our other cake buddies can assist as well icon_smile.gif

Good Luck.

It is not just about the sugar in the cake. The main culprit is carbs, so the flour is also a big concern.

I have made a diabetic carrot cake by changing the flour to a wholegrain, but this will not work if you do a sponge cake.

Would almond flour work in a sponge
