Fruit Upside-down Cake for Diabetes


♪ [music playing–

and I’m a graduate student here at Eastern Illinois University. Do you know that 25 million
Americans suffer from diabetes, and nearly a quarter of them
don’t even know they have it? Its a pretty frightening
statistic. Diabetes is a condition in which
the body does not produce or properly utilize insulin, which
is a hormone that helps convert the food that you eat
into energy. Now health professionals know
that a person’s diet is an important factor, and consuming
too much sugar regularly can lead to diabetes. After an individual is diagnosed
with diabetes, the first step in management is stabilizing blood
sugar levels and also moderating the high-sugar foods that
they do consume. Nowadays, there are so many
alternatives to actual sugar that individuals with diabetes
have it easier so they can still eat their favorite sweets,
in moderation of course, and with a healthy twist. So I’m going to introduce to you
a delicious, low-fat dessert that’s low in sugar and
it’s also easy to make and absolutely mouth-watering. It’s called fruit
upside-down cake, and you’re going to love it. So first of all, to make this
delectable dessert, you want to start off with a box of
white cake mix, a 12-ounce can of diet 7Up, two 12-ounce
bags of mixed fruit, thawed, a tablespoon of Splenda,
non-fat cooking spray, a 9 by 13 baking dish, and
also a flat serving platter. So first and foremost,
you want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Afterwards, you’re going
to spray the bottom of your pan generously so
that the fruit doesn’t stick to it in the baking. Once you’ve done that,
it’s ready to dump the fruit into the pan. Now, you want to spread the
fruit evenly across the bottom of the pan because this is
going to be your main topping. Also, frozen fruit is the best
alternative to natural fruit. It’s frozen within hours of
being picked, so nutritionally it’s about equal. Now what we have here is mixed
berry, so we have strawberries, raspberries, blackberries,
and blueberries. So not only is it going to add
a really nice punch of color to our cake, but it’s high in
vitamin C, fiber, and folates. Next we’re going to add our
Splenda, and you just want to sprinkle it across
the top here. Splenda is a relatively new,
no-calorie sweetner. It’s got about 5 calories per
gram and zero carbohydrates, so it’s a really great
alternative for diabetics who still want to enjoy
their sweet snacks. Now you can push this to the
side for now and we’re going to mix our cake batter. I’ve already poured it into a
large mixing bowl, so all you want to do is add
the diet 7Up. Now the carbonation in the diet
7Up is going to take the place of all the other ingredients
that you would normally add in a cake, so you’re
cutting your calories and you’re also cutting
the fat. Now when you mix it, you
want to mix it until about all the powder is dissolved. It’s okay if you have chunks,
that’s not a big deal. Then once we’re done mixing it,
we’re just going to pour it on top of our fruit mix
there…and just spread it out evenly across the top. Now we’re going to pop it
in the oven for about 35 minutes after this. Now you want to make sure that
you check your cake regularly because all oven times are
different and you don’t want to burn it. So stick a fork or a knife
in the center of the cake when you’re about halfway
through with about five minutes left
on the timer. If it comes out clean,
then you’re ready to go. If there’s still stuff on
the knife, then you want to keep baking it. So once you’re done and
you’ve taken it out of the oven, you’re going to have a cake that
looks very similar to this. You want to let it cool for
about 5 to 10 minutes before you go ahead and cut the
edges of it with a knife. This is just going to let the
fruit that’s sticking to the side of the pan come even. After you’ve done that, you
want to let it cool for about another 10 minutes until
it’s tolerable to touch. Afterwards, you’re going to
take a serving platter, flip it on top like so,
and flip your cake. It should just fall from the
bottom, if it doesn’t you might have to jiggle
it a little bit. Now you’ve created a
delicious, healthy cake to the natural alternative. So for more information or
