IS A HOMEMADE CAKE HEALTHY?
Well, it depends on the ingredients. If you make your own cake from scratch using fresh and wholesome ingredients like fiber-rich whole grain flour, honey, oats, fruit, vegetables, nuts or amazing dark chocolate, is a great bonus.
Plus, if you try to reduce the amount of sugar, fat, and ditch processed ingredients, food colorings and sugar-loaded decorations, your cake will be definitely healthier than a regular one.
If eaten in moderation, a homemade cake is healthy, tastes delicious and satisfies your sweet tooth.
WHAT IS THE HEALTHIEST CAKE TO EAT?
I’m not a doctor or a dietician, and I love a little indulgence here and there, but when I bake my cakes I always stick with wholesome healthy ingredients and I try to reduce the amount of sugar as much as I can. And this is obviously a bonus if we love staying on track with a healthy lifestyle.
For this reason, I love cakes containing plenty of delicious fruit, yogurt or even vegetables like carrots, beetroots or zucchini. Not only are these ingredients good and healthy, but their moisture and sweetness allow me to reduce the amount of fat and refined sugar that otherwise would end up in my cakes.
So if you wonder what is the healthiest cake to eat, low sugar cakes containing fruit, vegetables, nuts, dark chocolate, and unrefined ingredients are definitely a healthier alternative to regular cakes.
