The lockdown has taken its toll on everyone and we may not be fully in the clear yet. Meantime it seems people have taken up baking to pass the time. Baking can be therapeutic, and some say it can even relieve stress. I think cake can fix everything, a cup of tea and a slice of cake will always make you feel better. However, eating cake all the time isn’t so great for your calorie intake and can often be full of fat. We have filtered out a few of the best low-fat cakes so that you can still continue baking and won’t feel so bad about eating them either. Read on for Low-Fat Cakes: 3 Delicious Recipes for You to Try Today!
1. Carrot Cake
This recipe is great because it only contains 9 grams of fat and just 217 calories per serving. This is a healthier alternative to other cakes and is easy to make! This recipe uses quark, wholemeal flour and light soft cheese making it better overall in terms of calorie profile. No cake is completely healthy and lower-fat cakes still taste great.
Brownies are one of my favourite kinds of cakes and this recipe is the best low-fat version. Chocolate can often be quite heavy but these brownies are light and I guarantee you won’t be feeling so bad about eating these. They contain 175 calories and 6 grams of fat per brownie. You can even add on some fresh raspberries on top!
