THIS POST IS SPONSORED BY LAKANTO, ALL OPINIONS ARE 100% MY OWN.  

I’ve teamed up with one of my favorite companies, Lakanto, to make this Easy Skinny Dump Cake using their new sugar free monk fruit Baking Sweetener.  

What is a Dump Cake?

It’s a dry cake mix that is mixed or “dumped” over a fruit layer.

Why is it called a Dump Cake?

Well, because this cake is just as easy as dumping ingredients into the baking pan. There’s no mixing or stirring required! Which makes for a super easy dessert!  

What ingredients do I need to make this Easy Skinny Dump Cake?

  • Fruit: strawberries, raspberries, rhubarb, apples, peaches, blackberries, cherries, pineapple, blueberries with the natural juices. You can use either fresh or frozen.
  • Cornstarch: helps thicken the fruit juice/sauce 
  • Sugar Sweetener: I use Lakanto Monkfruit baking sweetener. You can any zero point sweetener. The powder or white granulated sugar sweetener works best. 
  • Sugar free cake mix: you can use the Pillsbury sugar free Devils Food cake if you love chocolate or the Pillsbury sugar free yellow cake mix
  • Light butter: I use the Land O’ Lakes light butter, which is 2 SmartPoints for 1 Tbsp. The light butter gives the cake a creamy flavor and helps browns the top of the cake.

What is Lakanto Monk Fruit Baking Sweetener?

  • TASTES JUST LIKE SUGAR: Contains zero net carbs and zero calories.  Perfect for baking cookies, cakes, and other sweet, sugar-free treats.
  • LIFESTYLE FRIENDLY: Works with WW, ketogenic, diabetic, candida, paleo, vegan, low-carb, low-sugar, non-GMO, and all-natural diets.

What is the difference between Lakanto Monk Fruit Classic Sweetener and the Lakanto Monk Fruit Baking Sweetener?

  • BETTER FOR BAKING: Lakanto Baking Sweetener dissolves effortlessly, retains moisture, can control cookie spread, and provides better browning for your desserts.
  • Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener provides the same great taste and sweetness you’ll find in Lakanto Golden and Classic Monkfruit Sweeteners, but it’s even better for baking.

Have you ever tried arrowroot for the corn starch? It's a thickening agent as well, so I'm thinking it might work. Enjoy your site.

Is there something you could substitute the sugar free cake mix with? Flour mix? We can't get the sugar free mixes in Canada :(

Tried this tonight and it was so delicious! My house smells so amazing and it was incredibly easy to do. We used frozen strawberries and it worked beautifully.
