Sugar Free Sponge Cake

Sugar Free Sponge Cake

A sugar free version of a popular sponge cake recipe.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • Flour AP- 1 1/2 cups. Can use Low Carb Carbalose flour alternative.
  • Baking Powder- 2 teaspoons.
  • Butter- 6 tablespoons softened to room temperature.
  • Milk or cream- 1/4 cup.
  • Eggs- 3 beaten.
  • Sugar alternative- equivalent to 3/4 cup of sugar granular works best.
  • Vanilla Extract- 1 1/2 teaspoons.
  • Salt -Pinch.


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 and prep your pan for nonstick. I like to use parchment paper unless I am making a bundt or springform style cake. Your oven rack should be set in the center of the oven as well.
  2. In a small sauce pan, warm your butter on low to medium heat. Once it begins to melt, stir in the milk. Do not allow this to burn or bubble. Once the butter has completely melted you can remove this from the heat and allow to cool.
  3. Sift together your flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl.
  4. Add your eggs to the sifted ingredients in the mixing bowl and beat on low. Then add the sugar alternative and continue to mix for an additional two minutes.
  5. Add the vanilla extract to the mixing bowl and then the salt and continue to mix for another minute.
  6. When the sauce pan has cooled to room temperature you can add that to the mixing bowl and mix for another minute. We want this blended but, without over mixing.
  7. Pour the batter into your prepped pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Allow this cake to cool before serving.
