CAKE!

Postby whit3tig3y » Wed Mar 25, 2009 1:16 pm

I have a new theory on a healthyish cake.

If I can find just a normal healthy cake recipe, I can make a healthy vanilla cake with a filling between two halves. This filling is usually jam and cream (yum) but i wanted something a bit healthier. My idea is........

Thickened yogurt.

Would it work? Say a nice strawberry yogurt, thickened with i think some people use milk powder to thicken it. Or a nice citrus or something. Does anyone have any idea's? Would the milk powder work? And would this cake taste yummy lol

Personally I can't see why it wouldn't work but you may have a job finding a healthy cake batter recipe. Good luck and If you do find on let us know how it pans out.

Oh, that looks YUM!

I found this recipe for chocolate cupcakes... I love chocolate! It has the option for either real sugar or a replacement, personally I'm going to try it with Splenda, but I know many people don't like using artificial sweetners, so each to their own.

Chocolate Cupcakes

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar or sugar substitute
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1/2 cup skim milk
4 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix dry and wet ingredients separately, then stir just until combined. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake papers. Beat all ingredients together, then fill each cup 2/3 full with batter. Bake 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean.

I'm a bit late to this discussion since you've decided you don't need the filling after all, but this recipe uses a low-fat cream cheese as filling. Might be worth considering if you ever need to make a cake filling in the future!

what about fruche as a filling??

I once had a dessert years ago - and should have gotten the recipe at the time - which was sponge and fruche and ??? but it was very Yummy - and I hate yoghurt of any type!!

I have a friend who is began - so might ask her if she has any good recipes - one would think they should be healthy??

For a good and healthy cake I can recommend a marbled pumpkin cheesecake. The filling includes low-fat cottage cheese and cream cheese, sugar, starch and lemon juice, there are a couple of versions on the web, such as http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/marbl ... ecake.html

I liked this one very much.
