Reviews for Frosted Mocha Cake
"This was very good. I used the light whipped topping and it worked well."
"I am border line diabetic so I watch my sugar intake. This was moist and delicious. My husband has asked me to make it for him to take next week."
"I am allergic to spenda so will try stevia, will make it today and find out how good it is."
"The frosting is tastey with that little nip of coffee. The cake is moist, however I think it's needs more cocoa. With alittle tweeking, I'd make it again :)"
"I have hesitatedmaking this cake as I do not have Splenda in the house-how much 'real' sugar would I need to substitute for the Splenda?"
"I would use applesauce in place of the prunes, also you can use carob powder in place of the cocoa if you can't tolerate cocoa."
"I am a diabetic and change most of my recipies to use Splenda grandular, Splenda baking blend which is 1/2 reg. sugar and 1/2 Splenda grandular....so if a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar you would use 1/2 cup of the baking blend. I always have good results with this. Splenda also has a brown sugar blend which is so good. Just give this cake a try with Splenda and you will see how good sweets can be when you are limited to the amount of sugar intake.Cakelady"
"This sounds like winner for my dh(diabetic). The changes I would make are egg whites(it's cheaper) and maybe Dream Whip."
"I agree with the previous reviewer. Why would someone give a recipe they've never made a poor rating simply because they didn't know what one of the ingredients is? To be honest, I typically don't review something until I've actually made it. This sounds very good; and, you can make it even healthier by using egg substitutes in place of the real eggs. I'm definitely going to try this one!"
"Not sure why everyone is so quick to give this recipe a bad rating when they haven't even made it yet and they just don't know what "sugar blend" is. Sugar blend is a sugar substitute developed by Splenda and is suppose to be better for baking. I haven't used it before but I wouldn't just rate something with 1 star because I didn't know what it was. This recipe is certainly worth a try. I have used prunes and other baby food in recipes too and it just gives it added moistness. Don't knock it till you've tried it."
"Sounds delicious, but chocolate really upsets my acid reflux. What can I substitute?"
"If you did not use the "sugar blend", how much sugar would you use? The sugar substitutes give me horrible headaches!"
"Very easy and great to make anytime."
"What about using applesauce instead of prune baby food?"
"FOR THE FROSTING ON THIS MOCHA cake, WHAT ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT FOR THE WHIPPED TOPPING, COOL WHIP OR WHAT"
"Sugar Blend would be Splenda Blend. It's sold in the baking aisle in a zip-top bag - usually with the Splenda. It's just Splenda and sugar mixed together for baking."
"This looks good but what is "Sugar blend"?"
