Recipe by Romany The Cat
This is a really yummy moist cake, but because there is no sugar in it, it won't keep long. I actually like eating this with butter on it..so much for the diet, but it is very tasty. You can substitute fresh, sugar free juice for the water, pineapple is particularly tasty. I also add in more Glace Cherries because I love 'em.

Did you ever actually READ the Pritikin books? Putting butter on it, adding glace cherries and adding concentrated sugar in the form of fruit juice completely negates the whole idea of Pritikin. Please call you cake ''Another let's all get fat together American cake''.<br/>Pritikin it isn't !!!!!!!
