    My Aunts favorite:
    I think she said this was from Weight Watchers, but it is a knock-out and easy,easy:

    One Angelfood cake mix (any kind.)

    One large can of crushed pineapple (about 22 oz)

    Mix well. I use a wodden spoon.

    Pour into angelfood cake pan or a 9X13. Bake according to box instructions.

    That is all! Good for blood sugar and she has a sweet tooth, so it works.

    I love it because it is low-cal and tastes perfect. This is so easy that at first I think I made it every few days! Just so fun.

    Thanks McJag - I never buy boxed cake mix as I always thought that it was both calorific & packed with junk....
    I saw on Sparkpeople that you can make cupcakes (around 32 & this cake is supposed to serve 12), which might be an idea....

    It doesn't last long. Gets scarffed up by non diabetes people who ask to take some home! If possible, Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines are the best mixes.

    Load up on veggies and if you can,salmon. I know lots of people don't like it, but it is great for you. I saw a tv show where they just fed the people raw fruit & veggies for 3 days and their blood sugar and cholesterol numbers dropped an amazing amount-in 3 days!
    I'll bet Msdeb will have lots of things to try.

    Why bother when you could do a 3 day kung fu run occasionally!

    I'm jealous. I haven't had any in a while. I love salmon in everything. Grilled salmon. Salmon nigiri sushi is my favorite. Smoked salmon with a bagel and cream cheese. Salmon in dips. The last two aren't very good for a Type II diet, though....

    I could eat salmon every day and never get tired of it. It's like crack. And it's very, very good for you. I'm jealous of the fresh salmon, too.

    As for boxed cake mix, they do contain sugar, but really a lot of them aren't as bad as other things that are processed and pre-packaged. Some actual chefs have said as far as consistency goes, you're almost better off buying a box because they measure all the flour and leavening so precisely and it gives you a light and fluffy cake. But, if we're talking about diabetes, I wouldn't suggest it anyway. Unless it really doesn't have sugar in it, like McJag's angel food cake. I know that's a popular cake mix for diabetes/weight loss/etc.

    This book was really popular when I was growing up and I think people still swear by it. I haven't had a peek in it in a while, so I don't know how good it is. It's called Out of the Sugar Rut.

    Out of the Sugar Rut: Joanie Huggins, Line Drawings: Amazon.com: Books

    They don't seem to have any used copies at Amazon UK, though. I'll see if I can dig it out and I'll glance through it and see if there's anything good in there.

    Angelfood cake is mostly powdered egg whites- that is the big difference.

    Yeah, that does make a big difference. And it's a lot easier to make it from the box when you consider all the eggs you'd go through to make it.
