If you are looking for a recipe for diabetics, this is the one. It is moist and taste a bit like gingerbread. I have tried numerous sugar free recipes and this is the only one that didn't make its way to the trash can. I made this recipe in an individual buttercup pan from Nordicware. Remember to adjust your cooking time if you use a different pan.
