Skinny Sugar-free Cinnamon Tea Cake

This is a very simple recipe and makes the most delicious buttery cake with simple but beautifully matched flavours. I replaced sugar in the recipe with Natvia stevia sweetener. Cinnamon on the palate is also associated with sweetness and can mimic the taste of sugar in your mouth.

Skinny Sugar-free Cinnamon Tea Cake

  • 60 grams of butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of stevia sweetener (I use Natvia)
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup of self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup of skim milk or almond milk
  • 10 grams of butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of caster sugar + 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease a deep 20cm round cake pan, line the base with baking paper.
  2. Beat butter, extract, sweetener and egg with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Sift in the flour and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and pour in the milk. Stir gently to combine.
  4. Pour mixture into the pan and bake for 35 - 30 minutes until risen and golden brown.
  5. Turn out onto a wire rack. Spoon the melted butter over the cake and using a sieve, cover with the icing sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Serve warm.
