This recipe holds a special place in our hearts as a cherished family favorite, evoking memories of cozy gatherings over coffee on ordinary weekdays. After patiently awaiting its transformation into a low-carb and sugar-free version, we're delighted to share it with you. May this recipe bring you as much joy as it has brought us.

What you need

  • Classic Yellow Cake Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 oz of sugar-free apricot jam (or your favorite flavor)

Bake This Way

  1. Combine and stir the Classic Yellow Cake Mix, olive oil, milk, eggs & vanilla extract in a medium sized bowl until well blended.
  2. Spray or butter your cake pan (8/9"). *For this recipe I like to use a cake pan with a removable bottom to avoid ruining the top when flipping upside down to remove.
  3. Put aside 1/4 of the cake batter in the freezer until ready to use. Pour the rest of the cake batter into your pan. 
  4. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  5. Mix the jam and carefully spread it over the top of the cake batter, as little or as much as you like.
  6. Once the oven is ready, remove the frozen 1/4 of the batter from the freezer and grate it over the jam. Use the side with big and round holes of the grater. If you do not have a grater then you can rub it between your fingers over the jam to create small crumbles. 
  7. Bakes at 325°F for 45-55 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  8. Enjoy!
