Orange Cake...Diabetic Recipe
I am reposting this recipe from last spring because, well, some cakes should just be eaten over and over again!
This is a refreshingly wonderful recipe for a spring and summer cake. Super easy to make, and people love it! Serve with a mound of sugar free or fat free whipped cream.
Ingredients: 1/3 cup reduced calorie margarine, melted 1/4 cup granulated brown sugar substitute 1 tsp. powdered sugar substitute 1 egg 1 1/4 cups flour 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 2/3 cup unsweetened orange juice Vegetable cooking spray
Combine margarine, sugar substitutes and egg. Beat at high speed with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Combine flour, baking powder, soda and cinnamon, stirring to blend. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with orange juice, beginning and ending with the flour. Beat at low speed after each addition. Spoon batter into an 8 inch round or square pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
Note: This makes 1 cake. Double the recipe if you want a layer cake. 9 servings.
You need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it. A village means that you are not alone, knowing that in the people, the trees, the earth, there is something that belongs to you, waiting for you when you are not there. ~Casare Pavese

Never permit yourself to become the weak link in the chain of your generations.
Welcome! Please pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in and relax with me awhile. As you'll notice, I am captivated by ancient times, a soul misplaced in this modern day. I have a love for my ancestry and I believe people who grow up without a sense of how yesterday has affected today, are unlikely to have a strong sense of how today affects tomorrow.
