Tiered carob fudge cake with banana icing

September 7th, 2009

If, like my mum you are allergic to chocolate, you will know the pain of watching others eat chocolate fudge cake! When mum turned forty, I made a giant carob black forest cake for the party. This year, a smaller, apple based cake very similar to our pear fudge chocolate cake. Melted carob drops, and […]

Pear chocolate fudge cake

August 5th, 2009

You’ll really thank yourself for making this one! This is my favourite low GI recipe so far. Do NOT tell your guests it is healthy, or you will find like I did that they hover around it, turn up their noses, feel slightly uncertain, and eventually try it, and then won’t believe you anyway! You’ll […]

Apple cake with banana, coconut and ricotta topping

July 12th, 2009

One of the most disappointing things about being on a diabetic diet is missing out on things. Saying no to rich desserts is fine most of the time-particularly if the blood sugar spike makes you feel unwell.

Cauliflower potato bake

July 12th, 2009

Cauliflower is one of those amazing foods that has almost no impact on blood sugar (GI approximates 0) – its essentially free food, so eat it till you grow “cauliflower ears”!!

Delicious, but the huge spike in blood sugars may leave you feeling irritable and rotten afterwards if you are diabetic. This […]
