Can a diet cake be delicious?

Diet cake

Soft and with an intense lemon scent, the dietary cake is prepared without sugar and with Greek yogurt. Here is the recipe for our light dessert.

The diet, especially when low-calorie and without sweets, is a real worry. On the other hand, treating yourself to a cuddle at the end of the day or starting off on the right foot at breakfast is part of our habits. For all those who are constantly on a diet and looking for light desserts, we have specifically designed the diet cake recipe.

To prepare a light cake, as you can imagine, you need to reduce or eliminate the amount of sugar . We therefore opted for a sweetener in drops which, while satisfying the taste buds, will not affect the daily calories. The diet cake recipe then involves the use of fat-free Greek yogurt and a slightly less refined flour than 00. You can also use wholemeal flour if you like: you will have an even more rustic dessert. The addition of lemon zest gives the dessert a unique aroma, which is truly essential.

How to prepare the diet cake recipe

  1. To prepare this light cake, mix the Greek yogurt , oil , sweetener and grated lemon zest in a bowl.
  2. Then combine the sifted flour with the yeast , mixing well with a whisk to avoid lumps forming.
  3. Pour the mixture into a mold lined with baking paper with a diameter of 20-22 centimetres.
  4. Then center at 180°C for 35-40 minutes, testing with a toothpick before taking out of the oven: if inserted into the center of the cake it must come out completely dry. If not, continue cooking for another 5 minutes and repeat the test.
  5. Serve the cake once it has completely cooled . However, we advise you against using icing sugar for decoration: it would "unnecessarily" increase the calories.

If you are looking for other desserts that don't put too much strain on your diet, we recommend that you consult our light dessert recipes: you will surely find the one that's right for you!


Like all cakes, you can keep it for about 3/4 days at room temperature. Place it under a glass bell jar so that it remains super soft. Alternatively, you can also freeze it in slices.
