Dining with Diabetes

Diabetes is a common, serious, and costly disease. Many complications of diabetes can be controlled and even prevented by making lifestyles changes – scheduling regular doctor visits, improving eating habits, increasing physical activity, and maintaining a healthy weight. The Dining with Diabetes program helps adults make lifestyle changes. It is a free program for those with diabetes and their family members. The series of four classes and a 3-month follow-up includes clinical testing, nutrition information, recipe demonstrations, exercise, and group support.

Recipes:

Apple Spice Snack Cake

cake:
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup Splenda Granular
1 Tbs. molasses or brown sugar
1 large egg
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. allspice

Topping:
1 Tbs. Splenda Granular
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Nonstick spray

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8 X 8 inch baking pan with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, stir together the oil, Splenda, and molasses or brown sugar, egg, applesauce, and vanilla.

In medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and allspice. Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture, mixing just until blended. Spoon batter into prepared pan.

In a small bowl, combine Splenda and cinnamon for topping and sprinkle evenly over batter. Bake for 20 minutes until the center of the cake springs back lightly when touched.
