This light and fluffy sugar free blueberry yogurt cake makes for a perfect guilt free treat, at least on a sugar front. The recipe is fairly straightforward and it doesn’t call for any unusual ingredients so why not give it a try? You may just be surprised as it tastes delicious!
- 180g flour
- 85g unsalted butter
- 50g + 1tsp Natvia*
- 100ml natural Greek yogurt
- 125g blueberries
- 2 eggs
- 1/4tsp baking soda
- 1tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 180C if fan assisted otherwise 190C.
Lightly grease one 8” loaf tin.
Sift and mix together the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Add one teaspoon of Natvia into your yogurt and stir until incorporated.
In a mixing bowl beat the butter and 50g of Natvia. Please note that it doesn’t beat in the same way as you would expect when using regular sugar, you will most likely end up having a crumb like texture but don’t worry about it, it will get fixed later on in so far as resembling a traditional cake batter.
Add the eggs, one at the time and continue mixing.
Add half of your flour mixture and mix until combined, then add the remaining flour and the yogurt and mix on a low speed until the mixture has an even texture.
Your batter will be quite thick, it should be like this so again do not worry.
Add the blueberries and using a spatula fold them gently into your batter.
Pour into your earlier prepared loaf tin.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 45-55min or until golden brown and it passes the dry toothpick test.
Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool for around 10-15 minutes, then remove from baking tin and leave to cool completely on a cooling rack.
Make yourself a nice cup of your favourite tea, or coffee if you prefer and then take your cake and cut, serve and enjoy!
And just in case this is a little too adventurous for you and you are wondering, yes, you can make it full blown standard refined sugar, just replace the Natvia with 150g of caster sugar. You will still have a light and fluffy cake just not as healthy and definitely not as low in calories.
