    Strawberry Sponge Cake

    Post by Eddie on Mon Sep 29 2014, 17:28



    Ingredients:
    100g ground almonds
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 large eggs
    1 tablespoon of melted butter
    2 tablespoons of double cream

    Method:
    Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
    Melt the butter I used a Pyrex jug, add the eggs, cream, then add the dry ingredients and mix. Microwave in a 700watt for 3 minutes. Allow to cool and cut in half. Spread on extra thick cream and some sliced strawberries. Serves four. Less than five carbs per portion.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Now I'm not usually a 'cake' person, but that looks delicious!

    If anyone fancies a quiet sit down one afternoon with a cup of tea ...... how about also making a low carb sponge cake and enjoying a slice with that cup of tea or coffee? This recipe can be adapted to use other low carb fruits ........

    All the best Jan

    No apologies for repeating this thread about a lovely low carb strawberry cake recipe. A piece just goes so well whilst you enjoy a cup of tea or coffee whilst watching Wimbledon or Silverstone !

    ... just a thought  Smile  

    All the best Jan
