Cakes that don’t rely on an outer frosting for decoration!
Tres Leches Cake Recipe
A tres leches cake, or torta de tres leches (from Spanish, “three milks cake”), or pan tres leches (“three milks bread”), is a sponge cake—in some recipes, a butter cake—soaked in three kinds of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream.
When butter is not used, the Tres Leches is a very light cake, with many air bubbles. This distinct texture is why it does not have a soggy consistency, despite being soaked in a mixture of three types of milk.
Angel Food Cupcakes (a healthier alternative)
Don’t be fooled by the delicious looking cupcake. This cupcake is actually a very healthy alternative to regular cakes/cupcakes!!!
Angel food cake is a butterless cake. It’s a sponge cake that anyone watching their figure can enjoy and still have control over calories! (this recipe is especially great for portion control since it’s a cupcake!!!)
If you want to add a little more ‘fun’ to the angel food cake you can serve it with syrup toppings, whipped cream, fresh fruit, fruit marmalades, ganaches, ice creams, sorbets, frozen yogurts, greek yogurt etc etc… In other words it’s easier to keep count of calories/fat because the toppings are separate/on the side!!!!
BE CREATIVE with your toppings but lets keep our summer weight goals in mind too…….cuz you know it’s bathing suit season!!!!
Bem Casado Sorbet Recipe (well married sorbet)
a perfect healthy alternative to a regular cake is a sponge cake. It usually has no butter and yet it’s often the base cake for such favorite’s as strawberry shortcakes, baked alaska’s, tiramisu’s, trifles & tres leches.
However, if used properly it’s a great alternative to regular cakes that are made with a lot of butter. They can be easily spiced up with fruits, whipped cream, diet friendly ganache’s etc.
