sugar free angel food cake
Angel food cake is a popular variety of cake in the US as well in the UK, where you can even purchase the pre-made stuff in the supermarkets.
Of course, I am an ambassador for fresh and healthy food, so making this sugar free angel food cake was really exciting. Now, the definition of an angel cake is that it is a sponge which comprises egg whites, flour and sugar.
As you can see, sugar is an integral component for this angel food cake recipe. However, thanks to Hermesetas, we’ve managed to create a recipe that doesn’t involve sugar at all and still tastes just as good. For more recipes, click here.
Sometimes, people like to toss in a whipping agent such as whipped cream or cream of tarter. Most importantly, an angel food cake recipe does not call for the addition of butter.
So, imagine a fluffy white cake that’s not made from sugar or butter. Who knew it was possible?

As mentioned above, it is thanks to the low calorie Hermesetas sweetener that this sugar free angel food cake is even possible. Since 1904 Hermes Sweeteners, the mother company, has been producing high-quality table top sweeteners. The latter comes in the form of little tablets, liquid and granulated sweetener.
This Swiss company, based in Zurich quickly gained popularity since its inception. In 1932, Hermesetas became the first branded sweetener in the world. Today, the company has produced special products for every purpose and has established brands.
The products themselves use high-intensity calorie-free sweetening ingredients such as saccharin, cyclamate or sucralose.
To give you an idea just how efficient these products are, one Hermesetas Mini Sweeteners tablet provides you with the same sweetness as one teaspoon of sugar, but saving 12g of sugar! Same goes for a single teaspoon of Hermesetas granulated sweetener. Calorie and guilt-free!

history of artificial sweeteners
It’s a funny story how low-calorie sweeteners were discovered. Did you know that it was all an accident that took place in 1878 by the German chemist Dr. Christian Fahlberg?
He unintentionally discovered saccharin, thus marking the start of low-calorie sweeteners that shaped the food industry today as we know it.
The artificial sweeteners industry became even more popular with the outbreak of World War One. Sugar supply in Europe reached critically low levels and people were looking for alternative ways to sweeten their food.
Hence, after World War One, sugar-free sweeteners became a regular product found in many kitchens!
This sugar free angel food cake looks just as beautiful as my Christmas pavlova wreath recipe, thanks to the toppings! As a finishing touch, I love to add a bit of cream cheese, berries and mint.
Some people enjoy the angel food cake as it is. Trust me, the sponge is soft enough and doesn’t need any moisture. However, I just love the combination of the angel food cake with cream cheese.
You may also choose to make a cherry coulis and pour it over the sugar free angel food cake. You can find the recipe here.
Otherwise, you can also opt for ice cream, such as a delicious no churn peanut butter Oreo ice cream. Otherwise, melting a bit of dark chocolate and drizzling some on top is another option. Besides, the sponge is sugar free so indulge in a little bit of chocolate!
I’ve got a lot of delicious recipes waiting for you on my blog. However, some of them include sugar. Therefore, I’ve come up with some of my own recipes which I think are suitable for using the Hermesetas sweetener.
As a result, you’ll have a healthier dessert and you won’t need to have any doubts whether or not you’ll fit into that summer swim suit. For example, why don’t you try making some of these:
- chocolate brandy torte – just add the sweetener to the dough when you incorporate the brandy.
- raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes – you can add the liquid sweetener when you make the sponge.
- baked chocolate cheesecake with cherry coulis – you’ll need the granulated version of the sweetener for making a cheesecake.
- blackberry compote – substitute sugar with artificial sugar and top the angel cake with it!
