      Made it for my Daughters 1st birthday cake. For sweetener I used sugar and only about 1/2 a cup. I baked a bunch of little cakes and they turned out great! I used cream cheese frosting sweetened and colored with fruit juice. My daughter LOVED it. I liked the cake just by itself. Thanks for the great recipe!

      I like some ideas from both Lasko and chef#377712 to make a healthy cake by using whole wheat flour and not the artificial sweetener (sucralose is made from sucrose but the process is entirely artificial, hydroxyl groups in the sugar are replaced with chlorine). And I love the idea of using fruit juice to sweeten and color the frosting. Thanks for the ideas!

      Wow! Finally a cake that I can feel good feeding my kids! It tastes so awesome even my hubby loves it. I made it with whole wheat pastry flour but the followed rest of the recipe. It is tender and moist and very yummy. I can't believe it. Thank you so, so much. This one is going in my keeper file.
