I left out the sugar because of diabetes and added some orange zest. When done, I used diced oranges and Land O Lakes Sugar Free Whipped Topping spray. It was exceptionally good. My only problem was making sure the sides were done. Maybe I need to flatten out the batter more. And, next time, I'm using Marscapone Cheese.
