Sugar-Free Lemon Cake

What You’ll Need

  • 1 box of sugar-free yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 large eggs 
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 lemons (zested and juiced)
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free strawberry preserves
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries (sliced)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease or lightly coat 16 mini bundt pans or muffin tins with cooking spray and set aside.
  • To a medium mixing bowl add the yellow cake mix, water, eggs, vegetable oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Mix in medium speed and beat for about 2 minutes or until smooth.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the greased mini bundt pans and bake for about 20to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool for a few minutes before turning the cakes out of the pans and cooling completely.
  • Add the sugar-free strawberry preserves to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the preserves turn to a liquid consistency.
  • Stir in the sliced fresh strawberries and continue to stir over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Simmer the strawberries and preserves, while stirring, until they break down to form a sauce.
  • Cool the sauce for several minutes. Top each cake with a little sauce and serve.

The Best Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

What You’ll Need

  • 2 ¼ cups flour

  • 17 tbsp butter

  • Start by preheating your oven to 350 and prepping a cookie sheet for nonstick.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Set this bowl aside.
