Thanks for a good diabetic receipe. I look forward to making this one!

This looks like a great diabetic recipe since Boston Cream Pie is my favorite cake. While I am not a diabetic, my husband is. But at 60 years young, it helps to eat less sugar. On a twist of the ridiculous proverb, “You CAN have your cake AND eat it, too” with this recipe.
Thank you for this recipe

You’re very welcomed! Enjoy!
