At some time or another, we need to use a Sugar Free Yellow Cake Recipe
This is the cake that we make when we want to bake a cake for a birthday, celebration, or simply for someone special.
After all, not everyone wants chocolate or 'Devils's Food' cake all of the time.
A Basic and Easy Sugar Free Yellow Cake Recipe
Yellow cake is that standard cake that we have all enjoyed at some time or another.
It seems as if we always ate frosted yellow cake cupcakes at birthday parties as a kid. This is because the yellow cake is the cake that most everyone can agree upon. It is the vanilla ice cream of the cake world.
What I like about yellow cake is that it can be dressed up in so many ways.
Unlike a chocolate cake, a yellow cake can be paired with any frosting. You can also decorate a yellow cake easily with colorful items like flowers and fruit.
Thankfully, a yellow cake can be made without added sugar.
I like to say that it is possible to have your cake and eat it sugar free too. However, even though this cake has no added sugar in it, this cake still tastes pretty good.
This is a basic yellow cake recipe that has a sugar alternative rather than sugar in it.
I use Splenda in my basic sugar free yellow cake. You are welcome to use the sugar alternative of your choice as long as you use the equivalent to sugar amount.
To make a layer cake, use two 8" round cake pans.
I've recently discovered silicon cake pans. They are super cheap and so easy to use. Cleaning the silicon pans is a breeze as well. Silicon cake pans can be easily found on Amazon. However, you can use the cake pan of your choice.
Frosting this cake can also be done sugar free.
I have a couple of great recipes for cake on this site. There is a sugar free chocolate buttercream recipe. A sugar free cocoa icing recipe. And lastly, a sugar free buttercream icing recipe (very popular...)
This cake can be made an a basic layer cake or even as a sheet cake.
If making this as a layer cake, you can frost between the layers using one of the recipes mentioned above.

I have updated this recipe and have replaced it with milk. While Greek Yogurt is one of my favorite go-to ingredients, it seems that people were a bit confused about subs for this. The milk that you use for this is entirely up to you as whole milk will certainly give you a different result from almond milk. thank you!!
