Raspberry Lemonade Cake Recipe [THM E]

THIS is my favorite! I can't believe it's sugar free!!! Raspberry lemon cake recipe that will rock your world. A THM E recipe.

Raspberry Lemonade Cake is my weekend invention, and why I’m currently mad at my whole family. They loved it so much that they ate the *entire* thing while I was gone to a meeting.

I guess I’ll have to make another one tomorrow. Because I just can’t stop thinking about it!

Beyond being amazingly scrumptious and lovely, my other favorite feature of this cake is that it makes a whole 9×13 pan. So your family can eat it all. I haven’t tried it in muffins yet, but I will!

I like to frost this with luscious lemon yogurt, and drizzle with raspberry lemon syrup, because I’m ALL about raspberry lemon right now.

If you’ve struggled to love the “bread” and flour subs in low carb baking, I’m right there with you. This one actually tastes just like real cake. No funky gritty or mushy texture issues- this is the real deal. It uses oat flour as a healthy slow carb option. Each square only has 11 grams of carbs!THIS is my favorite!

    I cannot have any dairy. Do you think something like coconut cream would be a crazy substitute for the yogurt?
    Thanks, sounds yummy!

      Laura, I think that might work, but coconut cream would pull it into a Crossover, right? I’m going to try it with applesauce and see if it works. My husband is now DF, so I’m going to be tweaking lots of recipes around here. :)
      P.S. Did you see the DF coconut yogurt recipe!?!!

    I’m going to try it with blueberries since that’s what I have. I’m assuming just the old fashion oats is what I chop up? I know around here somewhere I have oat flour, but …..

    Sorry for so many questions. I am a newbie to THM (only on it for 2 days). Anyway is this a good E snack or do I need to add protein?

      Hi Jeanne!
      You’re right that the cake is an E! It’s made with oat flour, so it’s got a nice, slow carb source that makes it an “energizing” choice on the THM plan. :) You *could* add an S topping, like whipped cream, but I chose to use a FP- the luscious lemon yogurt recipe on my blog. So the entire serving stays solidly in E territory.

      If I wanted to add whipped cream, it would become a crossover, not an S meal. That’s because both fuels (the carbs from the oats and the fat from the cream) would be mixed in one meal. So for my kids, I would add a big pile of whipped cream, or a glass of milk to get them into a crossover to support their growth & health. :)

      Hope that helps!

    I just came across this recipe. I don’t have sweet blend but I do have super sweet and gentle sweet. Would either of those work okay or do I need to use sweet? My mouth is watering thinking about this recipe.

    I finally got the THM Plan book and am so ready to soak it all in and start working toward better health for myself and my family! Thank you so much for publishing so many recipes like this that will be a huge asset in that endeavor. I’m making a big ol’ garlic chicken dinner tonight as an E/FP with a couple of disks of your Easy bread whipped up on a pan (sort of like naan) and this cake for dessert! At the last minute, though, I chose to try cupcakes instead of a sheet cake with 0% frosting blended with some more blueberries and lemon. Following the batter directions, I was able to fill 18 silicone cupcake molds. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

    Hi Gwen,
    Love your blog , your recipes are wonderful. My question: would whipped low fat cottage cheese with(or without) a drop of almond milk for topping keep it in the E?
    thanks
