    Hi.
    We have friends coming round for a meal to celebrate my son's birthday and I would like to make a cake that everyone can enjoy.(in moderation :) ) One of our guests is prediabetic and I have type 2. Please can anyone share a recipe that you use to make a sponge cake that can be iced. As we don't eat meat, fish or egg-s a vegan keto cake would seem to be the best choice, but I am no expert . I haven't found anything online with metric measurements. If you have any 'tried ansd tested' recipes I would love to see them. I have read about different sweetenders like stevia, xylitol etc and flours e.g coconut and almond, but really don't know which to use as I haven't baked anything since my diagnosis and trying to lose weight. Any recommendations would help me a lot. Thanks.

    I was just looking at the recipe. It looks delicious in the photo- shame about the eggs (for me anyway).

    Spice cake recipe. Spices can be toned down for kids, but who doesn’t love cinnamon cake?

    I use Swerve powdered sugar and bocha sweet or erythritol and the net carbs are well under 10 per serving. Tons of great desserts on this site, with a low carb option for many if you sub erythritol, or my favorite of bocha sweet:

    That was the cake I made for my son's birthday meal. I had to adjust the recipe I used from here. It was quite a rich cake and 'heavy', but everyone liked it. Here is the recipe: 1/4 cup cocoa, 3 cups coconut flour, 1/2 cup xylitol powder, 3 tbsp coconut milk, 1 1/4 cups water. 3 tbsp coconut oil, 2 tbsp baking powder, 3 tsp Orgran egg replacer. Beat with an electric whisk. Put in preheated oven for 50 minutes at 180 C.
    I couldn't find my piping bag, so the cream was kind of slapped on!

    Thank you. I was a bit worried about whether it would rise or not, but it did.
