Cinnamon Cake is suitable for individuals with a heart condition as it’s low in saturated fat and doesn’t contain trans fat. It is also acceptable for kids, pregnant and lactating women and seniors. Diabetic people can eat it, considering that each slice of cinnamon walnut cake contains almost twenty-five grams of carbohydrates.
It is not recommended to be served for babies less than one year aged or for individuals with milk, egg, protein or walnut hypersensitivity reaction. Non-caloric sweetener can be used instead of sugar to scale back the calorie and carbohydrates content.
