"You can make Powdered Sugar with Splenda, use the amount you would use of Splenda and add 2 tsps of corn starch in a blender. Blend for less than a minute and you will have powdered sugar. I got this idea from calling Splenda a few years ago. It really works. My husband and I are Diabetic."
"This is very good. Note: You can make Powdered Sugar with Splenda, use the amount you would use of Splenda and add 2 tsps of corn starch in a blender. Blend for less than a minutes and you will have powdered sugar. I got this idea from calling Splenda a few years ago. It really works."
"This was an easy cake to make. I took it to my bridge club and it was gone in 15 min. Should have made 2 cakes."
"Actually if I were to be asked: "Did these reviews of this recipe help you?" I would have to say a resounding NO. Very confused mish mash of reviews. Guess I will find another recipe.
"I made it and husband and neighbor raved about it. Very tasty. I'll make it for Easter."
"Based upon other reviews for dryness, etc., I made certain to not overmix the ingredients, using only a wooden spoon to blend ingredients, not a mixer. Also to add moisture, I added a 1/2 cup mashed banana and 1/2 c. low fat yogurt (more nutrition as well). The cake was moist, altho it had a dense texture. Having a diabetic husband and friend, I skipped the frosting and used s.f. whipped topping instead. Will make again."
