The black forest chocolate cake with a cherry topping is indeed a tempting treat, but it is not so delicious for glucose metabolism. It is high in simple carbs and sugar, which leads to hyperglycemia. The oils, butter, and cream in this delicious cake are all simple fats and have no healthy nutrients. Moreover, if consumed by someone with low glucose levels, it can cause hypoglycemia by altering the meal’s glycemic index.

Making black forest cake blood sugar friendly
• Try replacing regular cake flour with coconut or almond flour.
• Consider using low or no-carb flour as the base of the cake to stabilise glucose metabolism.
• You may replace the sugar used in cakes with plant-based sweetener or stevia. It helps make it a healthier choice than a regular one and keeps your glucose level in check.

According to a study, it was discovered that foods containing cocoa powder, which is found in chocolate, cause more incredible insulin reactions when compared to foods without it. Moreover, sugar, another component of chocolate, can lead to health issues like rising blood pressure and insulin levels. Consuming cakes on a balanced and moderate diet is recommended.
