my dad is a diabetic (i'm the vegan) and i really want to make him a birthday cake this year that is low sugar and vegan so we can BOTH enjoy it. any suggestions would be absolutely fabulous. he loves angel food cake and things that are light like that. nothing too rich.

thanks so much Cheesy

thanks lamarco i actually printed this recipe and showed it to my dad. his soon-to-be-56-year-old nose wrinkled and said "apple cake?" i thought it sounded delish. but whatever:)


he loves carrot cake as well as angel food cake.. but apparently no fruit-themes ones. man.

Can he have agave? Iy might be easier to find a vegan cake you like and sub. agave for the sugar... or something else he can have to add sweetness.

I would find a recipe that is diabetic and make it vegan using egg replacers, soy milk... I was a vegan baker for many years but I never made a sugar free cake. I did cookies but not cake. If you post a recipe here I can try and help you convert it. I'd test it before making the real one though.

I'm not promising it will be good but show me what you have. I would prefer a cake recipe but we can try a cupcake. Make a test batch.Usually i come up with recipes by trial and error. Cheesy

thanks guys, I actually found a recipe for sugar free Carrot cake that sounds pretty good. It uses orange juice concentrate as part of the sweetening aspect. I'd prefer not to use stuff like splenda (to be honest it scares the daylights out of me). So i'm gonna try this, i'll post results when I make it! (his birthday is next sunday Smiley)
