Maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle is very important to control blood sugar level.
But we have to make something for diabetic people for their sweet craving. So tried this cake for them. A guilt free cake made with shredded carrot, orange, dates, walnuts and raisins. These ingredients made this cake enough sweet. So a cake with whole wheat flour, soya bean flour, carrot, orange, raisins and walnuts definitely a healthy option to satisfy your sweet tooth.

You don’t need butter to make it. I have used only 2 tablespoon olive oil in it.
Diabetic or diet conscious people everyone can enjoy this guilt free cake.
You can increase the amount of oil 1/4 to 1/2 cup if you want your cake more moist. Oil or butter provide moistness. But if you are making it for diabetic or diet conscious people don’t increase. The cake is delicious with only 2 tablespoon oil.

Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!

  1. That’s an awesome recipe. Great way to add sweetness using natural sweet products like dates, raisins and to some extent carrots. Love that you’ve added soy flour too for added protein. Will try this recipe out.

  5. Love the idea of using dates and raisins to sweeten the cake. Carrots add to the sweetness and you have made it more healthy by adding soy flour; fabulous cake to make for diabetics; will try this soon πŸ™‚

  6. I love how you have used dates and raisins as a sweetener, and added orange elements for the extra flavour. Of course using wheat and soy flour only enriches this cake further in terms of nutrition.

    More power to you, Sujata.

      1. Yes. It’s smelling great but still not done. I didn’t have much of raisins so used mix fruits to sweeten it. Waiting to have a slice of it😊

  7. Hi I finally had a slice it was tasty and sweet without sugar which is great but a little wet since it was in the cake tin still cooling down. I made some changes to the recipe posted:
    1)I used only whole wheat flour so I felt it didn’t rise much.
    2) Used mix fruits which i had used for my Christmas fruit cake along with dates so the colour is a bit dark.
    3)The quantity was more so it took nearly 1 hr to bake but since used two cake tins side by side felt one was still little wet another one is not yet sliced.

    I really search for sugar free recipes online I’m m gaining too much weight with sugar and I always had a sweet tooth. This recipe is really good and it’s tasty too.
    Thanks sujata for the yum cake recipe. Waiting to try more sugarfree and healthy recipes and satisfy my sweet tooth and have healthy food for myself and husband😊😍

    1. Thanks a lot dear for trying. Next time please use soyabean flour. Soyabean flour will make your cake super soft. And raisins are low calorie and has many health benefits.
