Steps to follow:

So lets get to work! The first thing you have to do to make a sponge cake without sugar is beat the eggs in a sufficiently large bowl. You can use a fork or a manual or electric whisk, as you prefer.


Then add the granulated stevia (or any sweetener you want) to the yogurt, oil and the lemon zest. It should be noted that you can also choose the yogurt you like best: natural, lemon, Greek, etc. Mix well to get a homogeneous dough.


In another container sieve the flour, in other words pass the flour through a sieve or strainer to prevent lumps forming in the dough, and add the yeast or baking powder. If you are unsure what to do, you can consult our article how to sieve flour.


The next step for your sponge cake without sugar will be to combine the liquid and solid ingredients and mix by folding them gently. Meanwhile you can also start pre-heating the oven with heat from both top and bottom to 180ºC (356ºF); if it has fan you can also switch this on.


Butter the mold that you will use and sprinkle some flour on or, better still, line it with baking paper as it will be easier to take out later. With this done add the ingredients mix to the mold.


And... to the oven! Now you must leave it some 30 to 40 minutes at 180ºC (356ºF), and take out the sponge cake without sugar once it is golden and well cooked. To ensure that it is cooked through, you can insert a knife or toothpick into it and check that it comes out clean.
