One easy and delicious sugarless cake recipe for diabetics is a banana walnut cake that gets its sweetness from fruit instead of using sugar substitutes. This cake is a healthy but rich option for diabetics and anyone who may be trying to cut down on sugar.
To make this cake, begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Beat 2/3 cup of mashed bananas and 1/2 cup of softened butter until creamy. Add 3 eggs, and beat the mixture well.
In a separate bowl, combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Fill a measuring cup with 3/4 cup of water. Add a small amount of the flour mixture to the banana and butter mixture, alternating with a small amount of water, and beating well after each element is added. When the water and dry ingredients have been thoroughly mixed in, stir in 1 cup of chopped walnuts.
Grease a 9-inch square pan, and spoon in the cake batter. Bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes, and then cut into slices. This cake will make nine servings.
You can also make this cake without walnuts to accommodate a nut allergy.
