Some things, like this cake, just aren't worth it. Although the texture was better than other Splenda dessert recipes, the cake was nearly tasteless and actually unpleasant to eat. It's also difficult to make-- 7/8 cup? 3/8 cup? I'm not good with math-- I had to eyeball the measurements. Don't bother with this recipe. Just eat a piece of real carrot cake and exercise tomorrow.



I made a few changes to this recipe which I think would bring the rating from three stars, which I gave the original recipe, to at least four stars. Here is what I did:increased Splenda to 3/4 cup, replaced the oil and apple sauce with 1/2 cup Lighter bake fat substitute and 1/2 cup shredded apples, increased cinnamon to 1 teaspoon, added 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice and added 1/2 cup raisins or currants. This makes a sweeter and more flavorful cake and adds some moisture to it as well.



Cake comes out nice and moist. Needed more spice though. Otherwise a great health concious cake!!
