About this recipe: These are just what a diabetic needs to fill a sweet tooth but no sugar is added!
Listen, the people before me must not love someone with diabetes. I made these a few times and to tell you the truth, it needed a little work. As far as them being flat? ANY so-called expert would know it needed a little baking powder. So, add just about 1/4 tsp. no more! Also, I know carbs also raise blood sugar. BUT! lol I ditch the skim (yuk) use regular milk or 1/2 and 1/2. FINALLY!! another trick ANY expert would know... If its bitter and you are using cocoa.. use dutch processed cocoa its not bitter. Hershey's sells it in the silver container. If you don't have dutch processed cocoa try a little vanilla. This was a good recipe. It just needed an expert - 16 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made these for my grandma who is a diabetic and she loved them! Modifications were: 1/4 tsp. baking powder & 1/2 tsp. vanilla; I used 2% milk instead of skim and I did not use the frosting. *At first they looked cakelike, but as they cooled they went down and look like brownies. They smelt sooo good too! I didn't try them b/c my daughter is allergic to dairy and I nurse her. So, neither of us can have dairy. But my grandma gave them 4 stars!* - 10 Sep 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I am a gourmet baker and cook, and unfortunately diabetic. Therefore, my baking experience is vast both with sugar and sugar-free recipes. I prepared this recipe following all directions. What I got was a bitter, flat pancake. Horrible! - 01 May 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
