I have for you an extremely moist sugarless cake, with the uncanny resemblance to our popular black Christmas cake. The main difference is that there is no alcohol in this cake. As a matter of fact, this cake is a perfect substitute for the black Christmas Cake. This cake is also the second cake for the month I mentioned in an earlier post.
Why a Sugarless Cake?
Now this recipe was taken from the book, "My Life, My Diet", which also includes a number of selected recipes. If you want a copy of this book you can click here for it; it was one of our free giveaway eBooks. Anyway, this dessert is perfect in many ways. It will appeal to the health-conscious who are trying to reduce their intake of sugar, those who are dieting, and those who just want to have more nourishing and satisfying desserts.
This cake is just another treat for those who are diabetic as well. Whatever the reason, I know you will go crazy for this cake. My father-in-law loves black cakes and he gave this cake a thumbs up and a perfect score. My mom indicated she is saving a piece for later; she just loves the almonds in it.
