Healthy Homemade Funfetti Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I DID IT!  I made a Gluten Free Funfetti Cake ALL FROM SCRATCH!

That’s right, no bleached flour, no refined sugar and no artificial colorings and flavorings here.  I’m sure you’re wondering how this tastes?  Well, I can’t really put it into words because it’s indescribable  (aka, simply too awesome).

This Gluten Free Funfetti Cake is mind-blowing — it’s sweet, it’s buttery and it’s moist but it doesn’t even have any white sugar, butter, or excess oil!

This cake is a must-try.

  5. hi!! This looks AMAZING!! I was wondering if there is anything that i could replace the stevia extract with???….thanks!

    • dessertswithbenefits

      I’m afraid that the stevia extract will be very difficult to replace. It is very concentrated and replaces A LOT of sugar in the recipe. Without it, the cake might taste as sweet as a loaf of bread, yuck! 🙁

  6. hi! this cake looks wonderful what if we don’t have sorghum flour? Can we replace it with almond flour? thank you

    • dessertswithbenefits

      I’m not sure if the almond flour can replace the sorghum… this cake took me a few trials to get the texture just right so I am hesitant to recommend any replacements. However, if you are feeling ambitious then give it a go! I would recommend adding additional egg whites (let’s say, ½ cup?) or perhaps two whole eggs to give the almond flour some lift. I hope this works out for you 🙂
