How to Make Delicious Sugar-Free Cake

For years, I’ve been experimenting with keto desserts and sugar-free cake recipes, and I can confidently say, that this sugar-free chocolate cake recipe is a keeper!

Here’s the secret to making delicious stevia cake recipes

  • Use Stevia in the cake mix because stevia is stable when heated at high temperatures.
  • Use Swerve Confectioners Zero Calorie Sweetener for the icing because it tastes like sugar and has no bitter aftertaste. 
  • Separate the egg whites, whip them, and fold them into the batter for a light and fluffy cake.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need

Most of the ingredients you’ll need are easy to find at your local grocery store. Opt for Dutch-processed cocoa powder for a deep, dark, chocolatey flavor.

Ready to make this yummy chocolate cake? Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Cake flour
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Salt
  • Baking powder
  • Stevia
  • Eggs
  • Coconut oil
  • Almond extract
  • Vanilla extract
  • Plant-based milk

What’s the best baking pan for this cake?

The amount of batter this recipe makes is perfectly sized for a 6-inch cake pan, but you can bake it in any small baking dish, or springform pan you have. For tips on baking this recipe as cupcakes, see the Recipe Notes below.

Anytime I bake cakes, I use my Homemade Pan Release instead of pan spray and parchment paper. It’s so convenient to have on hand! (Especially for those busy baking seasons!)

3 easy steps to make sugar-free chocolate cake

  1. Separate the yolks and whites of 3 large eggs. Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form and set aside.
  2.  In another bowl, combine the egg yolks, coconut oil, almond milk, and both of the extracts.
  3. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Gently fold in the whipped egg whites.

Pour the batter into a 6-inch cake pan and bake at 350 degrees f for 27 minutes. Let the cake cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack and allow the cake to cool completely before icing.

Recipe Notes

To make this recipe into cupcakes: Line a 12-count muffin tin with cupcake liners and generously spray with non-stick spray. Evenly divide the batter into the 12 muffin wells. Bake at 350 degrees for 22 minutes.

How to make substitutions with stevia cake recipes

  • Gluten-free: Feel free to substitute almond flour or coconut flour to make this a gluten-free recipe
  • Sugar Alternatives: I use Stevia as the sugar substitute, but you can use Monk fruit sugar or coconut sugar if you want to avoid the aftertaste from artificial sweeteners. 
  • Keto-If you are following a keto diet, just substitute almond flour for the cake flour. 

Storage Tips

This cake tastes best when eaten on the same day. If you’re planning to serve it the next day, store it in an airtight container to keep it moist.

Recommended Tools

Here are my must-have tools that make preparing this cake a breeze:

Electric Mixer: A hand mixer is essential for thoroughly mixing ingredients and whipping up light, airy egg whites for a fluffy cake texture.

6-inch Cake Pan: This recipe makes 1 single cake layer, but you can double it to make layer cakes for easy stacking and filling.

Wire Rack for Cooling: Allows for even air circulation around the cake, helping it cool faster and maintaining its moist texture.
