Health Risks

Some are much healthier, some are not as healthy but cost nothing or next to nothing.  Each recipe that is economical but not as healthy is marked. 

For diabetics (and everyone else too) Equal has free recipes on their website

Cake Mixes
You can usually find cake mixes for about a dollar.  A spice cake mix will run you about $3.50.  You can buy a $1 white cake mix and make a spice cake by adding:
2 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves

If you save (clean and sanitize) your old tuna cans, you can use them as individual cake pans.  They can go in the freezer or lunchbox.  Be sure you label them, so you know which is the chocolate cake and which is the pineapple upside down cake.
