What makes this cake even better is the fact that this is SUGAR FREE! I use the THM Gentle Sweet because I love the taste!
If you have a sweetener that you like, stick with it but if you can use THM Gentle Sweet.
Yep. AND it’s GLUTEN FREE! So no worries if you are gluten sensitive!!
ALSO, it will fit in your Trim Healthy Mama plan!
It would be considered an S or low carb (keto friendly too) because of the higher fat and low carb!
This is a very rich moist cake! And it works best cool in the fridge before eating & if you keep in the fridge!
