    Diabetes Australia: Sticky Date and Oat Cake

    Post by graham64 on Sun Dec 04 2016, 21:55

    A sensational way to celebrate a special event or birthday. Enjoy this rich sticky date and oat cake which has less saturated fat and more dietary fibre than your average cake. This cake may be lower in saturated fat and higher in dietary fibre than your average cake but remember it is still a treat food- save for special occasions and enjoy as per serving size.

    Ingredients

    2 cups seeded dates

    0.5 cups water

    1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda

    60g margarine

    1/3 cups brown sugar

    2 eggs

    1 cup wholemeal self raising flour

    1/2 cups self-raising flour

    1/2 cups rolled oats

    1/2 cups soy or dairy milk (reduced fat)

    2/3 cups water

    1/2 tablespoons cornflour

    1/3 cups brown sugar

    2 tablespoons margarine

    Syrup:

    Mix together cornflour and a small amount of the 2/3 cup water to form a paste

    Gradually add remaining water and place in a saucepan

    Add 1/3 cup brown sugar and bring to the boil

    Reduce heat and cook for 1-2 minutes

    Whisk in margarine.

    Pour the syrup over the cake to serve. Serves 12.

    Dietitians Note
    This cake may be lower in saturated fat and higher in dietary fibre than your average cake but remember it is still a treat food - save for special occasions and enjoy as per serving size.

    Reckon this even beats some of DUK's ludicrous high carb offerings, but hey it's high in fibre and low fat so that's ok then  Rolling Eyes

    So basically it's EIGHT different carbs plus margarine and a couple of eggs.

    And they accuse Gary Fettke of "killing people" . . .

    That's my point, the people who scream "YOU'RE KILLING PEOPLE!" the loudest are usually killing more people than the Fettkes, Noakes, Kendricks etc. etc.
