no sugar vanilla cake recipe plus VITAMIX GIVEAWAY


The other day on facebook, we asked what is your favorite sweetener?

And it was interesting to see what everyone uses for sugar.

What sugar came out on top?

What sugar do we prefer? 

Our top two sweeteners are stevia and maple. Next up would be coconut sugar, dates, and honey. Although if we are baking we do not use dates or honey, we use those only in raw recipes.

We are happy to announce that today’s recipe is sweetened with stevia!! Since stevia had the most votes we have a feeling many of you will enjoy this recipe!

We are super stoked to not only be sharing a sugar-less cake recipe, but…

One lucky purely twins family member will have the chance to WIN A FREE Vitamix S30 personal blender. Details on that below.

And as we have mentioned, we have one a-m-a-z-i-n-g vanilla cake recipe to share. It is sweetened with stevia and has just 7 ingredients plus a delicious 2 ingredient frosting!

This vanilla cake reminds of pound cake, but healthy!  It dense and moist. Full of flavor. And super easy to make.

We actually made this delicious cake in our own S30 vitamix blender. You really can make just about anything in it! First we filmed us making homemade coconut butter, which only took 1 minute!

We look forward in making more homemade nut butters, especially chocolate pistachio butter!

 7 ingredient vanilla grain-free sugar-free cake made in vitamix s30 personal blender

As we mention in the video if you cannot find plantains, here are some ideas to do:

1. Try a green/yellow banana

2. Try 4 eggs instead 3 if you use a more ripe banana or sweet potatoes

3. If you don’t use a plantain you and use something else you might have to add in additional starch, like arrowroot or tapioca to the batter

4. If you cannot have coconut butter, try cashew butter if you want to keep it a neutral vanilla flavor

We have not tested any of these, so unsure of the final outcome.  We have not tested this to be vegan (egg-free) so unsure how flax or chia gels would turn out. Sorry.

How to make a stevia sweetened no flour vanilla pound cake recipe

We love this cake. It will quickly become a favorite no-sugar cake.

It does have a slight plantain flavor to it since we used stevia. But we find it to be amazing especially with the 2 ingredient coconut butter frosting on top and of course… sprinkles!!

  34. Maryz says:

    Chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream frosting is my favorite.

  35. Kaitlin says:

    Chocolate sounds amazing! With sprinkles of course!

  36. Sara says:

    For cake, I could go for chocolate with either no icing or a peanut butter icing like my mom used to make OR vanilla with chocolate icing. Hold the sprinkles though!

  37. Maryz says:


  38. Riss says:

    Chocolate cake! and sprinkles!

  39. I am a huge fan of Vanilla cake and without a doubt sprinkles!

  40. Bahja says:

    I love both,but vanilla has always been a favorite of mine. It’s so classy and the flavor doesn’t take over the other ingredients in the cake or the frosting….where sprinkles are ALWAYS welcome. I’m totally a texture person,and the soft crunch of sprinkles on a moist cake,makes my day:)

  41. kris says:

    My first choice is usually chocolate cake, but put coconut butter frosting on top of vanilla cake and I’m sold. And y’all definitely sold me the second you mentioned it reminds you of pound cake. YUM.

  61. Cathy says:

    I like cake no matter what flavor, sprinkles OT no sprinkles…bring it on!! My motto is Run 4 Cake!! ;)

  62. Estée Arts says:

    Vanilla with sprinkles. So this cake is perfect. :) Can’t wait to try it.

  63. Oh man! This looks amazing! I’ve always been more of a vanilla cake fan (particularly FUNFETTI!) but after discovering a paleo chocolate cake recipe that my family and I are LOVING that’s been a favorite. I guess, I could go either way but there should always be sprinkles of some sort. They’re just so fun! :)

  64. Shannon hinsdale says:

    Vanilla cake of course! With toasted coconut flakes in place of sprinkles:)

  65. Lara says:

    If it’s a cupcake, I prefer vanilla. If it’s a slice of cake, I like chocolate :) #highmaintenance And I’ll never turn down sprinkles.

  66. Lara says:

    I re-pinned the giveaway :)

  67. Fion says:

    I love chocolate cake! With sprinkles of course, it creates a celebratory mood :)

  68. kate says:

    I actually like vanilla cake, but with chocolate icing.

  69. Molly says:

    Vanilla cake with chocolate icing! #NomNom

  70. Sara S says:

    I usually would pick chocolate over vanilla, I LOVE chocolate!!
    I do love a good healthy vanilla cake too though :)
    And sprinkles make everything better! (As long as they aren’t the waxy ones that leave residue on the roof of your mouth) Chocolate sprinkles would be my top pick

  71. Victoria says:

    Liked and shared on facebook.
    Pinned it.
    Here is my comment: Chocolate cake! No sprinkles. BUT this cake sounds fantastic right now because I’ve been staying away from chocolate (health reasons). I CANNOT wait to try it.

  72. Julie W says:

    I like both flavors, but I LOVE vanilla cake! Sprinkles are pretty, but not a necessity. Now icing, on the other hand, is an absolute must! And this cake and icing recipe look fab! I’ll have to try it. Great giveaway!

  73. Crystal Robinson says:

    Vanilla no sprinkles

  74. amanda says:

    I love chocolate but for a cake a prefer vanilla! This recipie looks perfect cant wait to try it…i was all ready thinking what a perfect base…one could add lemon…orange…or even turn it into a yummy cinnamon coffee cake :)

  78. Kaitlyn says:

    Chocolate cake with sprinkles of course!

  79. Natalie F. says:

    CHOCOLATE is always my favorite. Death by chocolate cake, chocolate icing and chocolate ganache is the way I want to go! :) Sprinkles are always welcomed! Makes any cake instantly festive!

    I also tweeted, here’s the link:

    Thanks for this opportunity!

    Vanilla and I definitely like sprinkles on top :-)

  86. Maxi Smith says:

    Hey guys,
    I am a huge fan of chocolate cake but a good vanilla cake goes a long way as well! :) I’d never say no to either one (as long as I knew they were semi-healthy). I’m not a huge fan of sprinkles, tbh, but sometimes they do give a good flavor and I like them more when paired with a thicker frosting (who knows why). Anyway just wondering would it be possible to make this cake with applesauce versus the coconut oil? I can’t have coconut…or at least I don’t want to chance it as of yet.

    Thank you,


  87. Ingrid T says:

    Oh – and no sprinkles for me, please ;)

  88. emily says:

    chocolate cake! for sure. the more chocolate the better!

  89. Sarah Khaled says:

    This is such an amazing recipe! I cannot wait to try it especially that it has no flour and only plantain. I wonder how it will taste with banana though as I don’t have plantain where I live. Anyway, usually I’d say chocolate cake but now I really feel like vanilla and noo sprinkles for me :)

  90. Deb says:

    Chocolate, all the way! Preferably as rich as possible, with a very rich chocolate frosting or ganache to top it off :)

  91. Jamie Stone says:

    Chocolate cake all the way!

  92. I like vanilla cake with no sprinkles! I am not a fan of them. I do love chocolate (who doesn’t?) but i prefer vanilla when it comes to cake! It tastes like summer!

  93. Carey Reynolds says:

    Wow, that’s a lot of entries!
    I love vanilla cake the best, it’s cake so you might as well go all the way with the sprinkles and I would love the chance to try the Vitamix blender.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  94. Brooke says:

    Vanilla with sprinkles!

  102. Sami says:

    Typically I’m a chocolate girl, but this post totally sold me on VANILLA! <3 Thank you girls for always inspiring me to try new things! You're both beautiful, inside and out!
    Bless you both! Oh, and I'm sharing on Facebook and Twitter as I type this… I've been coveting a Vitamix for SO long now! I just can't seem to find the funds… winning one would totally be a blessing!

  103. Chocolate cake with no sprinkles!

  104. Great recipe and giveaway! Vitamix is the BEST! I am all about vanilla cake, vanilla icing and sprinkles. And I tweeted :)

  105. Florencia Martinez says:

    Both! It really depends on my mood :) but I have to choose ill probably do chocolate, oh and no sprinkles.

  106. Kiersten says:

    I’m more of a vanilla fan and I like sprinkles as long as they are the all natural kind. I don’t love the flavor of them but they sure do make cakes look pretty!

  107. Taylor M says:

    Chocolate cake! But this vanilla cake looks so good I will definitely try it :)

    • Taylor says:

      This cake was great! My plantain was very green, I couldn’t even peel it I had to cut the skin off. Next time I might add a little bit of agave to make it a little sweeter, but it was delicious!

  108. Meagnan says:

    OMG, I would LOVE to win! Thanks for the giveaway :)

    I love BOTH types of cake, but vanilla with sprinkles sounds delicious. A good chocolate cake is yummy too, but I would rather top it with ganache and not sprinkles.

    I would make pesto, smoothies, avocado pudding, and plantain bread with my new vitamix S30!!!

  109. Chocolate all the way! Love it! and sprinkles make everything better. :)

  110. Jodi says:

    Vanilla cake-no sprinkles!

  111. Sarah McLaughlin says:

  112. Barb mc says:

    Cake flavor – does it matter? And sprinkles – of course!!!

  113. Anu says:

    I love both but chocolate probably takes the edge! And I love sprinkles – especially on donuts. :)

  114. Lynette Jimenez says:

    I’m definitely craving that cake in its vanilla flavor! Since the cake itself is so healthy I probably would add a couple sprinkles because they give it a nice touch of spring/summer vibes!

  115. Jeannette says:

    i can’t wait to try this cake! i finally found plantains so i’ll have no excuse!

    to answer your question: chocolate. always choclate. with sprinkles, but i prefer non-pareilles. ;)

  116. lindsay says:

    pin pin pinned! love the whiskey answer. LOL! how about tequila?

  117. Jaime says:

    I usually like cakes like chocolate ganache and without sprinkles, but I’m excited to try this recipe as vanilla :)

  118. Christina says:

    Chocolate anything is awesome, but I prefer vanilla cake…of course I would never turn down a piece of cake, whatever the flavor. ;)
    No sprinkles!

  140. Sam says:

    Vanilla cake, no sprinkles sounds pretty good right now!
    Just curious, do you buy the vanilla bean powder or do you make it yourselves? If you make it, how does one do that?

  141. Calee says:

    Last week I made the most incredible cake (not healthy and definitely not sugar free): chocolate stout cake with sour cream frosting. There was something like 6 sticks of butter in it. It was so good, and it was one of those cakes that was so dense and rich that you couldn’t eat more than a few bites at a time.

  142. RH says:

    Chocolate. Maybe with salted caramel frosting… Mmm…

  143. Calee says:

    Tweeted! Pinned! and commented on the video. Thanks for the giveaway. I’ve wanted a vitamix for years and just can’t afford one. :(

  144. Jen says:

    I love vanilla cake. With sprinkles, or without….that really doesn’t matter, as long as there is lots of frosting!!!!!!!!

  152. Nice! What a great giveaway. Thank you.
    I prefer vanilla cake to chocolate because chocolate cakes usually don’t taste like chocolate. ;)

  153. Leah says:

    Definitely a vanilla cake with sprinkles kind of gal! I would love a Vitamix to make cake batter and maybe some smoothies to balance everything out! :)

  169. Monika says:

    Personally if i had to choose between chocolate OR vanilla (i can’t believe you’re making me choose here) I would go with a vanilla cake. BUT if you offered me a vanilla cake with chocolate frosting and sliced strawberries and colorful sprinkles I would be one extremely happy girl :)

    So many comments haha! I’m down with chocolate cake…but I’d take any flavor of frosting (coconut based?!)…and I’ve gotta say I’m one of those weirdos who isn’t really a sprinkle fan:O I don’t like the weired little crunchy bits:P Wahoo for Vitamix-they’re based in my hometown!!

  205. Brigitta Ormos Solet says:

  219. alexandra rutherford says:

    chocolate cake, extra chocolate, no sprinkles… I’ve never really understood sprinkles….

  220. Debyi says:

    I would totally go for vanilla cake with no sprinkles. The sprinkles make it look really pretty though. I also love stevia!

  221. Casey says:

    CHOCOLATE!!! But I definitely won’t turn down any gluten free cake tossed my way. Don’t worry, I’ll catch it – in my mouth! ;)

  222. Debyi says:

    I am allergic to apples and I am wondering if you can use any kind of vinegar in this cake like rice, champagne, fig, white balsamic vinegar? I am also very sensitive to coconut butter, could I substitute cashew butter instead? I know the flavor would be different, but…

  223. Casey says:

    I liked and commented on your YouTube video, pinned it, and tweeted! :)

  224. Beverly Aragon says:

    Chocolate cake all the way and YES to sprinkles!!!

  225. Oh my cake. How I love it! I love how simple you two make your recipes! And of course we all know I love my plantains.

    As much as I love chocolate, I love a good simple vanilla cake. And sprinkles are always a must!!

  226. Lindsay says:

    I commented! Definitely would love to win one for all the recipes I’m saving up.

  227. Lindsay says:

    I liked the post on Facebook (and the new layered cake one — it look FABULOUS).

  229. Molly says:

    Vanilla cake with sprinkles! Everything’s better with sprinkles!!

  230. LindaS says:

    Normally I would say chocolate, but if this cake is anywhere near as good as your cinnamon bun one with the plantains, I’m in :-) and sprinkles give it a nice crunch!
    I do have a question too…can I use vanilla extract in place of vanilla bean powder? I don’t think I could find the powder and I know vanilla beans are very expensive! Thanks :-)

  231. Kate P. says:

    That’s a tough choice…sometimes I crave chocolate, but right now vanilla sounds really good and maybe some sprinkles for fun!


  232. Karen I says:

    Chocolate cake for sure! And sprinkles are a MUST!


    Chocolate cake!!!
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  234. Vanessa Janyn says:

    Chocolate cake all the way! And no sprinkles unless the sprinkles are chocolate chips lol.

  235. Anne says:

    Not sure I could pick between the two! But if I had to… I guess I’d say Vanilla (with sprinkles in the cake mix) because funfetti is probably my overal favorite.
    I am having a sprinkle wedding cake so I think my answer to that question is pretty clear!

  236. Tracy says:

    Vanilla cake for sure and sprinkles always make things better! But really, any cake is pretty fantastic! Thanks for the recipe, I pinned it to try soon!

  237. Kristen says:

  250. I like chocolate cake better BUT if it’s a fluffy white cake, like this one, I could definitely convert to vanilla! I love the variety and creativity you always have with all of the plantain recipes. And of course, I love you girls and miss you and get a sneak peek into your life through your adorable Vlogs. :) Hugs!

  251. Watched and liked the video!

  252. Tweeted the giveaway and this recipe!

  254. allison says:

    Chocolate! Though I do love lemon cake as well.

  255. Eme says:

    Chocolate for sure! I don’t think I’ve had sprinkles since childhood!

  256. Brooke says:

    Although I’m usually a chocolate girl, cake is the exception ;). I like vanilla! And how could anyone say no to sprinkles?!

  257. This cake seems like it must be good. Using plantains was a great pick and anything vanilla with sprinkles is my favorite. I would also like to make smoothies, soups, cake batter and other healthy foods with the VITAMIX. I would be able to share these recipes with my Crunchers at my Granola Crunch Bootcamp.

  258. I liked and commented on the video.

  259. I like both chocolate and vanilla cakes, with or without sprinkles :+)

  260. Lacey Carlson says:

    I love vanilla cake with sprinkles, but I’ve also really become a chocolate lovin girl – especially with chocolate-avocado mousse or a date-based german chocolate frosting covering it. Actually just give me a bowl of either of those two frostings and cover it with sprinkles and Im a happy camper:)

  261. Lacey Carlson says:

    I tweeted and pinned!!! (@laceylittlebit)

  262. Charissa says:

    I think my favorite would be Chocolate Cake. With sprinkles. Always with sprinkles. :) lol

  263. witchintheditch says:

    This cake is amazing – I can’t believe it comes out so good with no flour or baking powder to help it rise! I’m totally eating it right now for breakfast.

    So… just fyi – not having a Vitamix (like most I assume? ;) Here’s advice on how I had to do the coconut butter – it’s a little harder in a small food processor:

    For starters *don’t* put the coconut in a paper bag if you buy in bulk – (my mistake) – the paper soaks up the oils and you need those to help it liquify! Use liquid (instead of powdered) vanilla & add it in to get the process going. Drizzle in melted coconut oil as you’re mixing (prob used less than a tbs altogether)… it took about 10mins to get it to a sticky (but clumpy) consistency. It worked perfect though once pureed with the plantain and eggs (I just used egg whites – works too). It made a pretty nutty frosting – which was really good.

    I think the sprinkles are the perfect tiny amount of sugar to stop you from having cravings after eating something sweet without the *kick*! Maybe that just happens to me…

    Re-pinned it!

  264. Krista says:

    Definitely chocolate, no sprinkles for me please. =)

    So hard!!! Love chocolate plain, but vanilla with strawberry coconut frosting! No sprinkles though.

  289. Lauren Camenga says:

    I’m definitely a fan of both but if it came down to it vanilla cake! Then you can top it with anything and won’t be too powerful. And of course who doesn’t love sprinkles! This cake looks amazing. Definitely can see why you ladies had this for your birthday. Yum!

  290. Lauren Camenga says:

    Oh! And I commented on your video. Commented on here. And am tweeting about it. Don’t have a Facebook unfortunately though. I do have Instagram! Yay :)

  291. RattatatNat says:

    Not sure if I can win being in Australia, but I’m certainly a chocolate girl for most things, but when it comes to cake vanilla often wins…add some chocolate frosting and amble a little sprinkled chocolate and well you have a perfect combination.
