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!
Basic sugar free white cake/Gin Lee


  • 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.
Mixing the ingredients for the cake/Gin Lee

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.

She is an animal rescuer, food critic, organic gardener, food editor, home cook, food blogger, artist, and a complete do-it-yourselfer. Gin Lee is a published author, journalist, and contributor, among other works, and she resides in a rural town in Arkansas with her husband and their fur babies, Highway, Princess, and Stinkpot the turtle. A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
