What kind of cakes can you eat during pregnancy

During pregnancy, it's important for women to be mindful of what they eat to ensure the health and well-being of both themselves and their growing baby. When it comes to satisfying a sweet tooth with cake, there are certain types that are safer for pregnant women to consume.

Angel Food Cake

Angel food cake is a light and airy option that is made primarily of egg whites, sugar, and flour. It is low in fat and cholesterol, making it a healthier choice for pregnant women. Plus, it's delicious and can be enjoyed with fresh fruit for added nutrients.

Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is another good option for pregnant women, as it contains carrots which are rich in Vitamin A and fiber. Just be sure to consume it in moderation, as carrot cake can be high in sugar and calories. Our Carrot & Cinnamon or Carrot & Vanilla Cake would be a great choice. We only use pasteurized mascarpone cream cheese which makes it a safe choice to eat this. Alternatively you can also try our Vegan Carrot Cake which made with plant based butter.

Yogurt Cake

Yogurt cake is a moist and flavorful choice that can be made with Greek yogurt for added protein. Greek yogurt is also a good source of calcium, which is important for the development of the baby's bones and teeth.

Whole Wheat Cake

Opting for a cake made with whole wheat flour instead of refined white flour can provide more fiber and nutrients. Whole wheat cake can be just as delicious as traditional cake and offers added health benefits for pregnant women.

When indulging in cake during pregnancy, it's important to remember to enjoy it in moderation and balance it with a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. By choosing the right kind of cakes, pregnant women can satisfy their cravings while also nourishing their bodies and their babies.
