King Cake Recipe Lower Fat and Lower Sugar! Easy Crescent Roll King Cake
Sometimes I get an email that really touches me and this email was one of those. It is about my very, very, favorite king cake recipe, and I was excited with Kourtney’s email. I know how wonderful and simple this lighter king cake recipe is and a better diabetic sweet recipe option. What’s great about this crescent roll king cake is you can make it wherever you live and it is made with everyday ingredients. Even the kid’s love to help so whether you make it for your own Mardi Gras celebration or a family recipe, you’ll love this version.
Thanks Kourtney for sharing this note with me about my easy king cake recipe:
I am 24 years old and was recently diagnosed with pre type 2 diabetes in the fall. As soon as King Cake season came around it made me depressed to go to the stores and see the King Cakes covered in sugar and filled with overly sweetened fillings that I shouldn’t be eating. I was SO happy to see your lower fat, lower sugar recipe on your blog for a more diabetic king cake (the crescent roll one) I made it tonight and it was AMAZING! It was easy to make and delicious. You are my new hero! Thank you so much! Kourtney Davison
I would recommend using less sugar in the filling and use less icing to make the recipe a more diabetic king cake recipe.
And, if you want to watch how to make this simple king cake recipe, here you go! Let me know how you like it and remember you can use different coloring icing for Valentine’s Day and St/ Patrick’s Day….or whatever holiday you want!
