This recipe comes from SPLENDA. A good dessert for diabetic's.

Top Review by Ms B.

The flavor and texture of this cake is awesome. It is a very spicy and moist cake. However, it is not suitable for most diabetics. The molasses is a natural sugar and takes the carb level too high for most diabetics to safely tolerate. I served this with a dollup of whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon. I would think that chopped nuts and/or raisins would be a good addition to this cake.
