Dukan Cake

Dukan Cake

Cake and diet seem to be incompatible concepts, but only if it is not about the diet plan of Dr. Ducane. This French nutritionist has developed a sensational diet, under which there is no need to deprive yourself of small gastronomic joys and give up your favorite dishes. You only need to cook them according to special recipes, without the use of sugar, flour and fatty foods. Cake according to Dyukan is obtained not too high in calories - not more than 150 kcal per 100 g of product, but sweet, appetizing and in no way inferior to the usual desserts. All these sweets can be prepared at home. It is only necessary to take care of the acquisition of the necessary ingredients and the availability of a mixer or blender in the house.

Cooking Features

To make the cake according to Dyukan not interfere with losing weight, it turned out tasty and beautiful, you need to know and take into account a few points.

  • Different recipes are provided for different stages of the diet, but those options of delicacy that can be eaten at the “Attack” stage are also suitable for other stages. Desserts suitable for “Alternation” are not suitable for use only in the “Attack” phase. Some variants of cakes can be used only in the final stages of the diet, when fruits and berries fall into the number of permitted foods. When choosing a cake recipe, you need to check with the list of products allowed at the appropriate stage.
  • Often, the number of ingredients for cake includes dry milk, it is recommended to mix it in a dish with a spoon, without using kitchen equipment.
  • Instead of sugar, low-calorie sweeteners are used for baking. If they are in tablets, they should first be crushed into powder or diluted in a teaspoon of warm water.
  • When it is necessary to beat the products into a dense foam, it is recommended to cool them before that - then the process will go much faster.
  • If the recipe does not involve whipping products, you need to mix them manually, using a spoon or a whisk.
  • Cottage cheese, kefir, milk and other similar products for dishes on the Dukan diet are used only skimmed. If the fat content in the product exceeds the indicator of 1, 5%, it is not suitable for the cake.
  • When baking, it is not recommended to open the oven once again, otherwise the dough will settle. If you are forced to open the door to check if the cake has already been baked, you need to close it smoothly, without knocking, then the risk of “precipitating” the dough will significantly decrease.
  • The readiness of the cakes is checked with a wooden toothpick. If, after dipping into the dough, it remains dry, you can proceed to the next stage of dessert preparation.
  • Vegetable oil is used only to lubricate the form. If you use a non-detachable baking dish, and silicone, you can not lubricate it with oil - all the same, the cakes are removed easily.

The cake according to Dyukan looks appetizing and seductive, but one cannot eat a lot of product even if one observes a loyal Dukan diet. It is better to restrict one piece of dessert per day, for tea, and include it in the menu every day.
