    Can’t recommend. I made the mistake of trusting the rating and not my judgement after reading the recipe. I must suggest looking for a more current recipe with one of the newer and much improved sugar substitutes. I regretfully can not say anything good about the cake, it was a waste of ingredients.

    I have made this cake for years, ever since my Dad found out he had diabetes. I made it per the original recipe with 1 cup raisins and 1 cup mixed diced dried fruit cooked in 2 cups water. This was my Dad's favorite cake. I recently made it for a group, many who had diabetes, and it was an instant hit and completely devoured. Do watch carefully when baking as you do not want to overbake it. I made it in a Bundt pan. Definitely a five star recipe.
