The Chicken Lady's carrot cake or fudge cake are both excellent. The orange/lemon bundt cake that is bumped up on this page is also excellent. In fact there are a TON of excellent recipes on here!

Linda Sue's Apple Bavanian Cheesecake is always a big hit with company at our house. And the apples on top hide the fact that is is LC.

Sure can, it's a pretty involved recipe though. I'm going to put it up on my blog probably tomorrow sometime. I just need to get a pretty picture or two and make the cranberries to go on top. It turned out beautifully! I needed to try it before I make it for Christmas to take it to my family. My blog address is in my signature

I'm going to be making the Red Velvet Cheesecake Swirl Brownies from 24/7 Low carb diner. I trialed them last weekend and they were excellent. They also look gorgeous. My non-lc dd and dh tried them and said that if they didn't know they were lc, they never would have guessed. Usually they can at least pick up on the fake sugar, but this time they didn't. So, I'm hopeful that everyone will like these on Christmas.

I'm not much of a baker or dessert maker, but I wanted to throw out a Holiday Dessert Recipe, for this season. Here's my contribution. They were OUTSTANDING, actually. A bit of a pain to make (the hand chocolate dipping), but they were very worth it and make QUITE an impression!

White Chocolate Dipped Mini Hazelnut-Pumpkin Muffins

3/4 cup (84g) hazelnut flour
1/4 cup (26g) golden flaxseed, ground
1/4 tsp (1g) salt
1/4 cup (50g) sugar equivalent
1 tsp (4g) baking powder
1/4 tsp (1.17g) guar gum
1/4 tsp (1.5g) xanthan gum
1 tsp (2g) cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp (1g) nutmeg, freshly ground
1/2 tsp (1g) cloves, ground
1 tsp (2g) fresh ginger, grated
2 tbsp (28.75g) sour cream
2/3 cup (163g) mashed pumpkin
2 large (100g) whole eggs
2 tbsp (30g) sugar free maple syrup
1/4 cup (56g) fresh whole butter, melted
5 oz (140g) sugar free white chocolate
  • Pre-heat oven to 325 F.
  • Blend together all your dry ingredients. Mix them well.
  • Combine all your wet ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix in your warm melted butter, slowly, so as not to accidentally cook the eggs.
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the wet, until combined.
  • Evenly distribute in 24 greased mini-muffin cups (I used silicone molds). Fill the cups about 80% of the way.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes, or until they are golden brown around the edges. They can take a good amount of time in the oven.
  • Remove and let cool ... completely.
  • Melt the chocolate over a double boiler, being careful not to get any water or steam in the melting chocolate.
  • Dip each muffin, top first, in the chocolate. Set aside and let harden. Feel free to dust with cinnamon, hazelnuts, squirts of sugar free milk chocolate, etc.
  • Serve!
That Eggnog Cheesecake looks like an amazing option, also! So many great choices.

Merry Christmas!!!

If I'm going to offer dessert to non LCers, I usually make Beachgirl's cheesecake as I think cheesecake is one of the easiest things to adapt to LC and please a crowd.

The banana split cake upthread is excellent. I often take that to potlucks, picnics, etc. in the summertime especially.

This year I made and froze (hoping it works out!) the gingerbread bundt cake from alldayidreamaboutfood, and I also have the yellow cake part frozen for the Italian Lemon Cream cake on the same site. Last year I made the Boston Cream Pie from her site and that is soooooo good too. I use Cleochatra's ganache recipe for the top as I prefer her rendition. A trifle would be good too...maybe pieces of gingerbread cake with whipped cream or pastry cream, etc. all in a big bowl.
