Hey guys,

Let me first say that I have been on crafster for about two weeks now and didn't even know that there was also a cooking section. This may be the most perfect site ever !!!

I was wondering since everyone on here is so creative if anyone has an great sugar free desserts. I know that fat free is pretty much waht dominates but I am not really concerned. I have a horrible sweet tooth and its the sugar that does me in. I have experiemented with a few reicpies and some come out well and others not so much.

I know I;m not the onnly one that is curious.

I haven't done it myself too much, but splenda is good for baking, or so I've been told.

Can you have fruit & stuff & are just avoiding added sugar?

Or do you need to avoid most all sugar??

Yeah, I have splenda and stevia in the house but since they are not the cheapest things in the world I was wondering if anyone had any recipies. Experimentation gets to be expensive  Wink

I just want to avoid sugar. Not opposed to fruit at all.

Sugar Free Apple Pie

Dough (or use premade pie dough):
300 grams (10.5oz.) Flour
210 grams (7 oz.) margarine
2 T. vinegar
1 egg
1 packet baking powder (about 2 1\5 teaspoon)
Mix together.

Fill a round baking dish 28cm (regular size pie pan)with half of the dough. Prick a few times with a fork.
Bake in oven 175 degrees C (about 340F) til light brown.
Filling:
750 gram (1 lb) apples (I make my own choice here--half sour half sweet)
Grate the apples on a coarse grater (here again I changed it.  I found it tasted better thinly sliced and less like apple sauce).
50 gr (about 1.7 oz)raisins (again I liked both the dark and light ones your preference)
If you grated the apples let it stand a bit then squeeze out the fluid.
Put apples on the dough. 
Roll out 3\4 of the remaining dough and put on top of the apples.
Bake in oven til light brown.
Take apricot jam without sugar and spread on top of pie.
Roll out the rest of the dough, cut long strips and put these on top of the jam.  Put back into oven and bake til brown. Approx. 20 min.
Hope you like it.

Thank you for taking the time to post this. I am baking this weekend for a girlfriend who had gestational diabetes. She just had her baby and can have sweets again. She loves my cheesecakes so I am baking that and will make this apple pie to take to her also. She has tons of visitors right now so a cake and a pie will be perfect for her.


I'll count the 'mmmmmmmms' and report back to you Wink

My pleasure.  I hope it goes well.  I have a sugar free no bake cheese cake (DH was recently diagnosed w\diabeties so have been looking and experimenting).  You could probably "match" products.  I tried my "fameous" cheese cake for my DS in the states and it came out awful cause I didn't know how to match up the cheeses. Easy fast cake. sub sugar for splenda

Another good combination for a no bake sugar free cheeesecake is to combine any sugar free pudding with a block of cream cheese and a bit of heavy whipping cream. Put all that with a regular pie crust. I find that a crust really doesn't have to be sweet.(Don't get me wrong I have a cookie crust that I have adapted from Charlie Trotter that is to die for) My best combo came with the chocolate sugar free pudding a bit of cocoa and the other ingredients. I haven't made this in years and have forgotten the proportions but this is one that is tough to screw up unless there is too much whipping cream. I am pretty sure there isn't much more than 1/4 cup to get everything to fluff.


I'll do some experimentation and post a recipie.

EDIT: Yeah, I am pretty sure there were a couple packs of splenda thrown in there too.

Thanks.  My cheese cake recipe has. Cheese, whipping cream, gelatine, water.  Put into a cookie crumb crust and cool.  I love it cause I've changed it to sugar free, I've used 3 types of chocolate to make it tricolada etc.  I've even made mini's from it.  It's presentation is great.
  I'd appreciate your tried and true recipe.  I'd love to bookmark it if\when I go back to the states so I can make it. thanks a lot!! Smiley
