SUGAR FREE LOW CARB SIMPLE SPONGE CAKE

A sugar free low carb sponge cake recipe for all your dessert needs.

Following the ketogenic lifestyle means having to adapt recipes as well as creating dishes that are tasty and exciting.

Plain sponge is the basic ingredient of many desserts. Of course you can follow recipes for various flavour cakes, but sometimes you just need a plain sponge to work with. Once you’ve mastered this sugar free low carb simple sponge cake it will become your keto diet staple. Whether you just fancy a slice for breakfast or with a cup of afternoon tea, or you’re creating a more complicated dessert with filling, icing, or whatever, I promise that you will come back to this recipe time and time again.sugar free low carb simple sponge cake

Not only is this sugar free low carb simple sponge cake very versatile, it is also extremely easy to make.

Using my favourite method , aka the lazy method ;), everything goes into one-bowl. First you whisk the wet ingredients, then you add the dry ingredients. No need to separate eggs. No need to whisk egg whites in another bowl. Nope! Whole eggs get added one at a time by breaking them directly into the one bowl.  Just check that no egg shell falls into the mix. Butter goes in melted, so no elbow work either!sugar free low carb simple sponge cake

I very much doubt you could find an easier recipe.  It literally takes minutes to get the cake mix ready for the oven. The important question is: does it taste good? To which I can honestly answer that you won’t be able to tell the difference between a ‘normal’ but unhealthy sponge cake and this one.  No-one who has tried it for me has been able to detect the fact that it was sugar free and low carb.  It even got the thumbs up from a fussy 8 year old!sugar free low carb simple sponge cake

There is a warning flag with this cake: lupin flour comes from the same legume family as peanuts and may cause a peanut-like allergic reaction in certain susceptible individuals. If this applies to you, you may wish to substitute lupin flour with almond fine flour and/or coconut flour, although the end result will obviously be different both in flavour and texture.

So now you have my sugar free low carb simple sponge cake recipe, all you have to do is give it a go.

Enjoy!

    • Hi. Thank you for your comment. Yes you can, although you will need to adjust the quantity depending on its sweetness. However, I never use sucralose (e.g. Splenda) as it’s unnatural plus high GI, which means it spikes blood glucose. If you’re keto adapted, you should really stay away from sucralose, but if you’re not, no problem.

  1. Hi Antya, I’ve never left a comment on any blog before but really wanna post one for you to thank you. I followed exactly your recipe to make a tiramisu last night for my husband as a Valentine’s night dessert and he absolutely was amazed and LOVING it. I was amazed too. It’s sooo good. We had been to Venice on honeymoon and fell in love with real Italian style tiramisu. And since we had been on keto, we never thought we could have a real keto tiramisu. Thank you so so much for the amazing recipe.

    • Michelle, thank you very much for taking time to leave a comment. I’m really chuffed that you enjoyed the Tiramisu’. Hopefully, you’ll have a few more portions to share with hubby! It took me ages to perfect it, but getting feedback makes it all worthwhile. Thanks again for the kind words. Means a lot to me.

  2. Wow!! this is a super fantastic recipe! This was a huge success in my family, so much they’re begging me to do it again 🙂
    I used almond flour and it was still awesome. Thanks so much for sharing.
    I’ll take a look into other of your recipes.

    • Hello! Yes you can use almond flour instead of lupin flour. Just make sure it is FINE almond flour, not the coarse ground almonds variety, otherwise you’ll have a sponge with a grainy consistency (unless you don’t mind that). I’d love to know how your tiramisú turns out! 🙂

    • Hi there! I don’t use volume measures because they’re inaccurate. Take for example a cup of butter: unless you melt the butter, your cup will undoubtedly have more or less unfilled gaps compared to my cup, so it becomes an approximate measure. Cups are also specific to some Countries, whilst metric measurements are a standard well known worldwide. There are plenty of conversion tables on the web which I’m sure will help you.
