Are you a diabetic? Don’t like to eat sugar? Do you want to eat healthier? Don’t worry! You can also make your yogurt sponge cake much healthier by using natural sweeteners.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 125 gram lemon yogurt
  • 200 grams of sugar
  • 125=150 mL of sunflower oil
  • 170 grams of flour
  • 1 packet of yeast
  • 70 grams of cacao (this ingredient is optional. If you don’t add it, you will get a lemon sponge cake).
  • Salt

Directions

  • Start by cracking 3 eggs into a bowl. Whisk them and then add in the sugar so that it is mixed together well.



Note: You can use other healthier and natural sweeteners. They can be whole cane sugar, brown sugar, or even stevia.

  • Before putting the mixture in the oven, you should melt the butter in the container that you are going to bake in to prevent the dessert from getting stuck and breaking apart when you take it out. Once you put the mixture in the container with butter, put it in a preheated oven at 170-180 degrees Celsius for 30 to 40 minutes.

Note: it is important to not open the oven before it is ready because if the sponge cake is not ready, it will sink and won’t rise all the way.
