The Low Fat Cake Recipe Can be Surprisingly Delicious
Low fat cake recipe ideas are plentiful. The key to finding cake recipes that are low in fat is to be willing to go outside your normal "comfort zone" where recipes are concerned.
A second important factor is to realize that you need to gravitate towards healthy ingredients in your cake recipes.
All too often sweet goods such as cookies, cakes, brownies and other desserts are loaded with ingredients that you should avoid. Many low fat diet recipes call for sugar substitutes. As it turns out, artificial sugar substitutes can rank amongst the worst food choices possible. One must be very careful when using sugar substitutes of any kind.
A Look at Sugar Substitutes
There are a few alternatives to sugar that are natural and could work well in a low fat cake recipe. Some people feel that sugar in all forms is very harmful and damaging, but there are a few options you should consider, even if you are interested in weight loss and reducing belly fat.
The first option is coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is low on the glycemic index and is generally seen as a healthier alternative to sugar.
Another sugar alternative that has received a good deal of attention is xylitol. Xylitol has been shown in studies to improve overall tooth health and reduce the risk of cavities, and it may even contribute to bone strength. Both these options can be used in your low fat cake recipe.
Reducing the Fat in Cake Mixes
Cake mixes are used quite frequently, because they are an easy and fast way to make a delicious dessert. It is possible to make a store bought cake mix and reduce fat and cholesterol at the same time.
One very effective solution is to replace the oil in the recipe with applesauce. Often you won’t even notice that the oil is missing! You can also omit the oil altogether. You can also make cake mixes more nutritious by adding ripe bananas or even canned pumpkin.
