Sugar-Free Yellow Sunflower Cake Recipe by the Diabetic Pastry Chef 


3 cups all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups dry sugar substitute of your alternative

4 giant eggs, room temp

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 1/4 cup buttermilk, room temp

1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles, reserved for topping


Grease and flour your pan; put aside.

In a mixing bowl, mix dry elements and put aside.

Within the bowl of an electrical mixer at medium pace, cream the butter, oil, and sugar substitute till fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk; combine nicely. Add the flour combination to the batter and blend till mixed, being cautious to not overmix.

Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake at 350 levels for about 40 minutes, or till a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clear. Take away from the oven onto a baking rack and unmold after about 10 minutes. Cool and fill the middle with mini chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles.

Be aware: My sugar substitute was erythritol. I used a Nordic Ware Sunflower Cake Pan to make this cake.

Historically, Sunflower muffins are made in a Nordic Ware Sunflower pan. Nonetheless, this Sunflower Cake will also be made in a spherical bundt pan. Fill within the heart gap with mini chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles and use a sugar-free, thick, yellow glaze ladled across the prime of the cake to appear like cascading petals.
