Positively delicious Key Lime flavor. USE the sugar! Splenda is almost worthless for baking IMO... even the baking blend with sugar can give IFFY results... and I am a diabetic! Just use a little restraint and DO NOT eat the whole cake at one sitting. An alternative lifestyle for diabetics that I've adopted... savor such delicious indulgences in small servings and GIVE AWAY half (or more) to friends! They will love you all the more... and maybe invite you over for dinner!
I gave it a 4 star because it didn't raise any at all. It ended up sorta gummy but I am sure that was my fault. I'm going to try it again soon. But taste wise, it deserved a 5 star rating. I used splenda instead of sugar, so maybe that was my mistake. Hope someone can tell me. I recomend it to anyone at all far as taste goes. Its delicious!
Really don't know how to say this but this is not good - bland and blah.
This cake has a great flavor, was more dense than I thought it would be. I did substitute butter for the 1/2 cup shortening because I use butter in all my other pound cakes. I also used cake flour to give it a lighter texture. My glaze was wonderful, I added 4 oz. cream cheese and substituted powdered sugar for the white sugar and also added a little key lime zest along with the juice and a 1-2 tablespoons of milk. Everyone found it to be delicious.
