this week i wanted to bake something, but since i've been told i need to stay off sugar and carbs, i had to look for diabetic-friendly recipes. i'm NOT diabetic, mind you, but i figure i should eat like one, to give me a little push towards more healthful eating.
mixed the dry and wet ingredients separately, and then put them together, and place in a bread pan and put in the oven.
here's the before and after...
perfect for afternoon tea
i did make the buttercream frosting that's supposed to be spread on top, but i was just too concerned about the sugar and the calories from the cream cheese, butter and sweetener, that i didn't eat a lot of it with the bread.
the bread tasted good, but it wasn't as moist as i wanted it to be, so i guess i have to try again. since i prefer cooking on the stove as opposed to using the oven, i think i need a bit more practice with baking. who knows, maybe i'll make my own cupcakes one of these days.
what about you, what have you been whipping up in your kitchen?
