Didn't rise...

One tip on the recipe--actually do what they say about adding half of the dry ingredients, then the liquid, and then the other half of the dry ingredients....Otherwise---it will not mix properly at all. I ended up redoing it. Still didn't rise...

Beware Splenda Sugar Blend

I read all the rave reviews on this cake. However, my husband is TYPE 1 DIABETIC which means absolutely NO SUGAR. This recipe is NOT APPROPRIATE for TRUE DIABETICS as the Splenda Sugar Blend CONTAINS SUGAR. Please do not give this cake to insulin-dependent diabetics that cannot have sugar.

Splenda Sugar Blend for Baking Chocolate Cake

I am so grateful to this site for having included recipes using Splenda. Our sweet neighbors are both diabetics and have a craving for chocolate cake now and then. This is theirs. Thanks so much

Hit the spot

My husband is diabetic and has a sweet tooth. We buy sugar free cookies and things from the grocery store. He thought the homemade cake was so good.
