Easy New Year’s Resolutions: Have Your Cake!
But switch up the slice of chocolate or yellow cake for a sweet, airy piece of angel food cake.
Unlike traditional cakes, angel food is made with whipped egg whites and contains no fat, no cholesterol and about half the calories and half the carbs.
If you’re watching your blood-glucose levels, especially if you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic, angel food cake is a great choice. Fewer carbs help keep your blood sugar more stable, which is why angel-food cake scores high dessert marks from organizations like the American Diabetes Association.
Try making the cake with half granulated sugar and half granular no-calorie sweetener to cut the carb count even more — without losing the heavenly sweet flavor.
