Got a quick question: Can figs & raisins be used as a Dukan Diet for diabetes?Is it curative? Thanks for any answer or 2. Another question... Does anyone have a way to may the Dukan Diet pancakes lighter and fluffier?.

Has anyone tried the chocolate cake in the oven, and if so was it better?.

I was thinking about doing them like pancakes and putting something on them such as light cherry pie filling for fruit or something..

I the consistency in the oven. It may need more sweetener and salt...

The answer is Yes, but... you might wanna make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm my answer as I am unsure of myself. Better yet, why don't you contact the Dukan Diet guys because they can answer your Dukan Diet question better...

Here is what I do:.

Preheat oven to 350..

Mix cake mix with the following:.

1 TBS cocoa powder.

2 packets Splenda.

1/8 tsp each: baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and vanilla.

Instead of water use: 1 oz leftover coffee and 1 oz sugar free maple syrup..

(The added cocoa will make the mixture thick. You may need to add a little more coffee, syrup or both to thin it out.).

Divide mixture between 2 muffin cups sprayed with non stick spray. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean..

Not only does this make the cake tastier, but by dividing into 2 muffin tins, you get more to eat for the same number of calories. You can put some low fat fudge between the two cakes or marshmellow fluff...

I found some great recipes using the pancake mix at:.


Christina has recipes for fruit danishes. I bake them in a small springform pan. They raise very nicely. I made an orange one for breakfast this morning and sliced it and topped it with FF ricotta cheese, spenda and a little orange extract and then toasted it in a toaster oven..

As for the chocolate cake, I like it better in the oven. It does need some work, though. I do what Libra says. I've also added a half of a sliced banana in the batter. You can also substitute flavored sugar free syrups for some of the liquid. Look in you spice cabinet. There may be something there that will jazz it up...

I have been wondering how to make the pancakes fluffier as well! So glad you started this thread. I will have to check out Christina's recipes. Thanks!..

Comment #4

I once read using club soda makes fluffier pancakes..

I thought using the fat serving of oil to the cake might help too. Great suggestions. The mix is such a neat idea for an individual cake..

I am going to try the oven..

I add a little baking powder to my pancakes and it helps fluff them up..

I wonder if an egg would help either from protein serving. Also separating and beating the egg whites and folding in might help pancakes and chocolate cake...

Comment #5

Making a waffle might be a good idea too for the pancake...

Comment #6

When I make the cake I put 1/2 tsp of baking powder in them and 1/4 cup egg beaters plus the water or cold coffee. I bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. The eggs make it more like regular cake...

Comment #7

Keep looking on the recipe/food boards and you'll find some great ways to use the pancake mix. You may even invent some yourself..

I spent so much time at the beginning combing through all the posts looking for recipes. I created a Word document for the ones I want to try..

As I mentioned earlier Christina Gray has a ton of great recipes using Dukan Diet foods...

Comment #8

Someone posted (and the nutritionist verified that such a small amount would not effect the plan) that they added a tsp of Bisquick Heart Smart to the pancake mix. Maybe it would help out the cake, too! Some people add part of their milk serving to make crepes...

Comment #9

For the pancakes add:.

1 tsp baking powder.

1 tsp lemon juice (won't taste it).

1 tsp vanilla.

1 packet Splenda or 2 tsp Splenda mix.

Cook on low temp for the best, most evenly cooked pancakes..

Comment #10

Did it. It was great. You're a a lifesaver....of my tastebuds...

Comment #11

Very simple, yet it might be just what I need, too. Thanks Crista!!..

Comment #12

I used the pancake mix for waffles while staying at a hotel that served the make-your-own waffles and other than sticking to the waffle iron, it was GOOD! I'd use a little non-stick spray at home. Top with either SF fruit topping or SF syrup!..

Comment #13

I tried the chocolate cake in the oven last nite,i found it had a major after taste,i liked it alot better in the micro,i guess thats why they call it micro .donna..
