      As Rachel Ray would say: Yum-o! I replaced the sugar with Splenda to taste to make it diabetic friendly. I also used King Arthur White Wheat flour instead of AP (because that's my favorite flour). I also added a layer of thinly sliced apples between the batter and streusel and baked it in a spring form pan. It's a definite keeper!
