Half Splenda/half sugar or Splenda for baking can be used in the mix with equally good results. This recipe is an adaption of a recipe that comes from More Make a Mix Cookery.

I followed the directions exactly (using 2 1/2 cups of mix as suggested by another review) and could not understand why my usual dump cake had such a hard crust. I own a copy of More Make A Mix and looked up the original recipe. The original calls for 1 1/2 cups of vegetable shortening to be worked into the flour/sugar mix until it is like corn meal. I mixed another batch with the shortening and weighed out 18 ounces (which is a usual cake mix) and it was a little more than 3 1/2 cups dry. (lightly spooned and leveled off in the cup). It worked perfectly. I guess if the fat-free version works for you and you get good results, then go for it! Thanks for posting.

This works beautifully with Paula's Peach Dump Cake for 2. I made only 1 cup and I still had plenty leftover for another use. Thank you, Paula!
