Milk cake is a dessert that is made out of refined wheat flour and a lot of sugar, which are both carbohydrates and are broken down into glucose. This causes a rise in blood glucose levels, triggering the release of insulin to move glucose from the bloodstream into cells.

A Healthier Twist on a Classic Dessert
• Choose a smaller portion size of milk cake to limit carbohydrate intake and minimize the impact on blood sugar levels.
• Pair milk cake with protein-rich foods like nuts or cheese to slow down the absorption of carbohydrates.
• Consider using alternative flour like almond or coconut flour to make the cake.
• Incorporate healthy fats like nuts or seeds into the milk cake recipe.
• Substitute natural sweeteners like stevia for refined sugar to reduce the glycemic load.

Milk cake contains carbohydrates, which are broken down into glucose and enter the bloodstream, causing a rise in blood glucose levels. This triggers the release of insulin, which moves glucose from the bloodstream into cells, where it can be used for energy or stored for later use. Therefore, it’s important to be mindful of the amount of milk cake consumed and pair it with protein and healthy fats to manage blood sugar levels.
