Frosted Mocha Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
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!
