    Hi can u suggest if we could convert this cake for diabetics. . Also guessing how much ever I have read and made ur recipes ..This is possible to do in whole wheat flour too correct?

    What so pan would u suggest for this recipe ?

      Hi Tarunpreet..sorry !im not sure about the sugar free version..
      you can use whole wheat flour for this recipe…if you are doing so, slightly increase the amount of baking soda to 1 and 3/4 tsp..or even 2 tsp…Make sure you mix the dry and wet ingredients very gently…You can use a 9" x 9" pan for this recipe.
      Happy Baking
