King Cake is Swerved!
As you are using Swerve to bake a delicious cookie or frost a cooled cupcake, you may have noticed that Swerve’s packaging proudly acknowledges that we are “Born and Raised in New Orleans.” Now take a look at your bag or bake mix. That's right, y'all! Can you believe it?
In a sea (or shall we say, the Mississippi River) of deep fried and breaded shrimp, loaded poboys, powdered sugar-covered beignets, and bales of sugar cane, Swerve was birthed! We love our heritage and the sugar-spun irony that comes with being Swerve. Who knew that a zero-calorie, natural sugar replacement would be created in a world of Pat O'Brien's Hurricanes, Mardi Gras parades, and King Cakes?!
We'll leave the hurricane-making to Pat O's, the bead-throwing to parade float riders, but the King Cake-baking...? We knew we could tackle that one!
After many pencil-erasing and taste bud-teasing hours spent finding the right mixture of better-for-you flours and ingredients, please enjoy the healthier-for-you, Swerved King Cake! The first bite is worth the time spent making this delectable, New Orleans tradition, one Swerve sprinkle at a time! (Yes. We said sprinkles.We had to have the childhood and float ride inspiring sprinkles!)
Try this recipe out in the below video. We promise you will enjoy each Mardi Gras celebrating bite of your Swerved King Cake!
We will also be having a giveaway later this month, so make sure you are following us on Facebook to enter!
Laissez le bon temps rouler!
