Another resolution. Bake more diabetic friendly desserts.
(I had decided not to share these, but one by one the little devils keep slipping out.)
So the sweet fellow I wed has diabetes and has had it pretty much all of his life. He was diagnosed when he was three and he will tell these sad stories about birthday parties at school. All the kids would get a piece of cake passed out to them, and he always got half of an apple. (reminds me of this poor fellow) An apple does not hold a candle to cake, when you are a kid.
Sadly I have been feeding this guy cakes since the day I met him. He never put up a fuss about eating different, so I never put up a fuss that he should eat different. Aye me. Now I am deeply invested in keeping him alive and healthy for a very long time. Cue beet cake.
We tried this beet cake recipe last weekend and we are in love. I realize the sugar content is still rather high-but it was a start for us. We also picked up some agave nectar which is a great substitute for sugar. If anyone has tips, recipes, kid-eating-apple-instead-of-cake therapy, do send it my way.
