THANK YOU everyone who participated! We appreciate you taking the time to comment.

What sugar do we prefer?Β 

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! Β It dense and moist. Full of flavor. And super easy to make.Β

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 to making more homemade nut butters, especially chocolate pistachio butter!

Β 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 and youΒ 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. Β 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!!

Hey guys,
I am a huge fan of chocolate cake but a good vanilla cake goes a long way as well! πŸ™‚ 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,

Maxi

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.

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? πŸ˜‰ 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…

I love both vanilla and chocolate.. it really depends on my mood at the time πŸ™‚
I definitely like having some sort of sprinkles though, the texture and flavor is so much better that way!!

I’m not generally a huge cake fan…but I just found a gluten free company in kuwait (where I live) that makes the most divine melt in your mouth chocolate cake! And no frosting or sprinkles!

Why limit yourself to chocolate or vanilla, marble cake is the best of both worlds! And you can never go wrong with sprinkles, everyone loves being a kid at heart.

okay I know I’m about to have my woman card revoked buuut… I don’t like chocolate :O I know, I know, blasphemous. So vanilla all the way for me! And always sprinkles, they just make everything so girly and ten thousand times more awesome. Happy birthday week beautiful ladies! <3

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!

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.

Hello again! So I just got my flash player updated and was finally able to catch some of your vlogs! Can I just say how freakin cute you both are!? I made this cake and mmmmmmmmm! Really though, this was super great just the way it is (with stevia). To all people who dislike the taste of stevia: try this recipe. I’m not usually a fan of stevia’s flavor, but this cake was WONDERFUL! Thank again for all the positivity girls, keep on truckin!
