Basic sugar free white cake
Yes, with my sugar-free white cake recipe, you can have your cake and eat it too, without taking in a ton of calories or sugar! Several years ago, umm about fifteen to be more absolute, I decided that I wanted to make a solid white cake, but I wanted to make it sugar-free, milk-free, and also eggless. If you're interested in seeing how I make this delightful cake, keep reading!
- 3 ½ cups of self-rising flour, sifted
- 1 ½ cups granulated white Splenda
- 2/3 cup canola oil, divided
- 2 cups of warm water, divided
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray and lightly dust the pan with flour.
In a large mixing bowl, add flour and Splenda. Mix at the lowest speed with a mixer, or use a hand whisk. Add in half of the canola oil and half of the water. Now, beat the cake mix on medium-high speed, or until all the flour is completely combined. (The mixture will become very thick at this point and this is normal for this cake.) Finish adding in the rest of the canola oil and bend well.
Now, add in the remaining one cup of water and the pure vanilla extract; mix until the water and vanilla are combined well. The cake mix should become thinner at this point and be really easy to pour into the prepared pan.
Next, pour the cake batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake for about thirty-five minutes. The outside edges of the cake should be lightly golden when it's finished baking. You can also do the toothpick test in the center of the cake to make sure the cake is completely done.
The inside of the cake is white. So don't be fooled by the golden color of its outside appearance.
Take the cake out of the oven and allow it to cool completely, before adding any frosting.
This is a very basic white cake. There are no real bells and whistles that come with it. So, it does need some type of sugar-free frosting, or whipped topping or fruit added. If you want to make sugar-free buttercream frosting for this sugar-free cake, look for my article where I shared that recipe.
For this particular cake today, I will be topping it with my homemade peaches and cream topping. I will be sharing how I make the cake topping, in my following article.
