Delicious dessert recipes made with Cheerwine don’t have to be full of sugar. Introducing our sugar-free and low-carb version of our popular Cheerwine Poke Cake using Cheerwine Zero Sugar! 


Cake Ingredients

  • 1 box Duncan Hines Keto Yellow Cake Mix
  • ½ cup Cheerwine Zero Sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Gelatin Ingredients

  • 2 cups Cheerwine Zero Sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons unflavored gelatin powder
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar Free Cherry Syrup*

Whipped Topping Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 46 tablespoons Sugar Free Cherry Syrup*
  • Optional: cherries for garnish (omit for truly sugar-free recipe)


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan. Prepare cake mix according to box directions, substituting the ½ cup water with Cheerwine Zero Sugar and adding the cherry syrup. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for recommended time on the cake mix box. Allow cake to cool for 15 minutes. 

In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups of Cheerwine Zero to a boil. Remove pan from heat and stir in gelatin until dissolved. Add cherry syrup and stir to combine. Using a straw or handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes in the cake every 2 inches. Pour the gelatin mixture evenly over entire cake. Cover and refrigerate cake for at least 4 hours. 

Using an electric mixer, beat heavy cream and cherry syrup until stiff peaks form. Spread whipped cream over top of chilled cake. Garnish with cherries on top if desired. Refrigerate leftover cake. Enjoy!
