Thanks for getting back with me, but I find it after searching for it. Thank you very much.

Hi, where would I go to see the question that I asked about 2 weeks ago, when it's not down below any more?

Hi there! Your question should be there if you asked it. If you'd like to refresh our memories, we'll be happy to answer it!

I plan on making this for thanksgiving. But I did notice the mention of cinnamon being healthy. I think this is a great time to specify, too much Cassia Cinnamon can lead to health issues but Ceylon Cinnamon is ALWAYS good for you, just do a little research, yourself, and see )

This recipe is right up my alley, I'll eat apples in just about anything. I am a little confused though as to what makes this cake diabetic friendly. Isn't the sugar what you want to avoid if you're diabetic and not the fat...or am I mistaken? And what exactly is a sugar blend? Do you just blend in your preference of sugars together, or do they actually sell sugar called sugar blend? Either way, I think this is going to be amazing...kinda like apple pie meets cake, and that suits just fine!

Pretty sure they are referring to a blend of sugar substitutes and real sugar. Splenda and Truvia make one for brown sugar and for white sugar. You can also mix it yourself. Just check the sweetness of the substitute sweetener. Some are way sweetener than sugar.

Thank you!

Hi there! While the American Diabetes Association guidelines do allow small amounts of sugar in recipes, we always suggest checking with a doctor or nutritionist to find out your dietary guidelines, which may very from person to person with diabetes. The sugar blend is a mixture of sugar substitute and regular sugar mixed together, and it is a common product that you can probably find at your local grocery store. Thanks for reaching out. :)

Thanks so much!
