Simple Vanilla Cake (with Carbquik) 

Take a peek at this…….

Now that’s yumm on a plate. 😉 But, I confess. The initial recipe is thanks to Linda’s Low Carb Menus and via Carbquik website. However, I changed it to create my own take, but I’m thankful to the original posters for inspiration.


1 1/2 cups Carbquik

1/2 cup Splenda

1 egg

1/2 cup CalifiaFarms almond coconut blend milk

4 tbsp unsalted margarine or butter

2 tbsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp Torani French vanilla syrup

Squirts liquid sweetener as needed to adjust sweetness level.



Preheat oven 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients well.

Add wet.

Blend on low then high until a batter forms. Taste. Adjust sweetener as needed.

Spray an 8×8 brownie pan and pour in batter.

Bake 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow to rest before frosting.

The frosting I used today was the store bought Pilsbury Sugar Free Chocolate as it was leftover from my daughters birthday cake. Lol. When cooled, frost.

When ready cut into six portions. Each portion, with frosting, consists of:

188 calories

3.3 net carbs

14 g fat

6 protein.

And looks like this:

***as a side note this could be made, no frosting, and used for a sweet bread to go with BBQ. It’s that perfect. Enjoy!!!

  1. Is it possible to change up this cake … for instance … add spices to make it a gingerbread/spice type of cake? Or blueberries perhaps … or add some sour cream for more moisture? Or add something to make it a chocolate cake? Strawberry cake perhaps?

    • Oh yes! I would advise against strawberries though. They tend to moisten the cake too much. Blueberries are great just coat them in Carbquik so they don’t sink to the bottom. Chocolate is tricky but you could easily do s spice cake with this using cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice.
