8 Easter Cake Ideas - Without The Unwanted Calories
Easter weekend is among us. A time to recharge, relax and enjoy some sweet downtime and there’s no better way to do this than a bit of baking. Luckily, we’ve got just the treats for you. Below you can find our best Easter cake ideas, all of which are reduced-calorie, low sugar and utterly delicious.
Low-Calorie Baking Made Simple.
Lo-Dough products are unlike any other. Our original bases tend to be used, first and foremost, for pizza. But, by tearing one into smaller pieces and blitzing it in a food processor, you’re left with a fine breadcrumb that can be used as a great low calorie, low carb and gluten-free flour replacement. Alternatively, our brownie mix can make more than low-calorie brownies. Add a teaspoon of baking powder and you can also make all manner of tasty, reduced sugar cakes.
Carrot Mug Cake
You can’t celebrate Easter without a carrot cake. This mug cake takes a mere 3 minutes in a microwave and is a great healthy baking idea. The whole thing contains just 252 kcals - icing and all.
New York Style Baked Cheesecake
If following a low-carb diet, cheesecake might feel like something that is completely off the cards. Well, here's the recipe you've been waiting for - for just 6g of carbs per generous slice, we know you're going to love this one!
Banoffee Mug Cake
Usually a super calorific and high sugar dessert, this Banoffee Mug Cake has been given a low calorie, Lo-Dough twist. It tastes like the real deal and is even complete with an indulgent, no-sugar toffee sauce
Black Forest Gateau Cake
We've taken the flavours of a classic black forest gateau and turned our brownie mix into the perfect Easter show-stopper. To make the low sugar jam filling, simply boil down half a tin of cherries with a touch of erythritol and then thickened it with cornflour.
Double Chocolate Cake
If you like chocolate, then in all likelihood you’ll love chocolate cake! Unlike most chocolate cakes, ours is not filled with carbs and sugar, but still wonderfully rich and sweet, making it the ultimate reduced calorie cake. A great gluten free baking idea.
A beautiful, light almond-flavoured sponge, icing, jam and the cherry on top - for just 66 calories. One piece of Lo-Dough makes three cakes and one cake would make the perfect mid-morning treat with a coffee or tea.
Melt in the Middle Chocolate Mug Cake
The proof is in the mug cake - can believe it's a little over 300 calories. The sweet melted chocolate oozing from the centre makes this the perfect Easter treat.
Chocolate Ripple Cheesecake
This is a serious dessert and a great use for your brownie mix. Luscious and silky, the cheesecake mix is gently baked so it just sets without losing its creamy texture. The brownie base is the perfect foil to all this - when spread and cooked this thin it takes on a more biscuity texture.
