Sugar Free Yogurt Cake

Sugar Free Yogurt Cake

This recipe is a sugar free version of yogurt cake that I made before. My first recipe had full fat yogurt and sugar that made it higher in calories. Since then I have tried to see if it is possible to use monkfruit/erythritol sweetener and get the same result. And I was pleasantly surprised that it was! I was able to to maintain the same amazing flavor and have a lighter version of the original recipe.

Is Greek yogurt good for losing weight?

Greek yogurt is very good for losing weight. It is low in calories and high in protein, which will make you full and satisfied. I like to add Greek yogurt to many of my desserts as a substitute for whipped cream, sour cream or other calorie heavy creamers. I have made a cheesecake, coconut ice cream, coffee ice cream, jello mouse and many more desserts that were so delicious it is hard to believe they are healthy options.

What is the best cake to eat when on a diet?

Best cake or desserts in general to eat when you are on a diet are cakes like Angel Food Cake, this Yogurt Cake, and similar desserts that are made with less fat and have higher protein content. When you are trying to lose weight you want to make sure you eat less calories than you burn. Changing your recipes in a way that they have less calories but more protein and nutrients will make you full and satisfied. That way you do not feel deprived when you reduce calorie intake.

How to make sugar free yogurt cake

Separate yolks from egg whites making sure not to leak any yolk into egg whites as they won’t beat to stiff peaks.

Pour egg whites into a bowl of electric mixer and beat until stiff peaks form. Transfer to another bowl, if you want to use the mixer to cream the yolks.

Add monkfruit sweetener to egg yolks, vanilla extract and cream the eggs until they became light and fluffy.

Because I always have had an issue with the cake collapsing after taking it from the oven, I decided to use water bath (just like for a cheesecake) to see if that would keep the cake from deflating.

Bake at 330 F (160C) for 45 minutes. Raise the temperature to 350F (180C) and bake for additional 15 minutes.

Crack the oven door open and let it cool a little bit before taking it out. That should prevent the cake from deflating as well.

  • Hi Anita.
    I’ve been trying to subscribe to your website but it does not want to go through.

      • Hello, have you tried this recipe with only a pure monk fruit or stevia sweetener? I can’t use the monk fruit mixtures.

        • I have not tried it. The sweeteners I use behave very much like sugar, the other ones can affect the texture

  • 5 stars
    In your video is says 1/2 cup monkfruit but the ingredients list has 1/3 cup monkfruit. Can you te lol me which one is the correct one

    • I must have reduced the amount after I made the video, I apologize for that mixup. You can use either, it won’t affect the texture. It depends how sweet you like your desserts. I noticed 1/3 was sufficient for me. But I started with 1/2 cup.
