Reduced Carb Sponge Cake ~ Also free from Dairy, Wheat, Corn and Dairy

reduced sugar cake

IMG_9805This whole cake has a total Carbohydrate value of 80 grams.

If you follow Aunty Lils Unit Counting Diet, a portion (1/8) will count as 2.5 units.

I find it’s best cooked in loose bottomed non stick sandwich tins approx 8″ diameter. But you can use any cake tin you like, just bake until it feels fairly firm on top. When you touch it gently with your finger, it should spring back.

This is a great cake for people who can’t have wheat flour because cakes made from things like rice flour have more of a powdery or dry texture. But the addition of almonds makes it more moist like a ‘proper’ sponge cake.

Prawn Salad with lashings of Mayonnaise.

This is one of my favourite Summer meals and barely a trace of a carbohydrate.

On a hot sunny day, I like to sit on the patio and eat this. Heaven!
