Diabetic / sugar-free cake

  • 6

Does anywhere know where I could find a tasty diabetic / sugar free cake in Toronto? It's my grandma's 80th birthday and would love to be able to get her a cake to celebrate. I thought Dufflet might have one, but i could only find gluten free

Thanks!

      Thanks! I've contacted these three. Think I bought one at Gerhard's a couple of years ago as the name/location is familiar.

    2. Bunners in the Junction uses agave nectar as a sweetener which they say is low on the glycemic index and therefore better for diabetics.

        I would be wary of agave. It might be a little low on the GI scale, but it still raises blood glucose and should be treated the same as normal sugar.

          Good to know - thanks. I did sent out an email to Bunners asking for more details, but have yet to get a reply

      2. If Grandma's diabetes is under control, she should be able to eat a bit of "normal" cake (this is coming from a diabetic).
