All I can say is WOW!! I made everything as written... right down to the crust and spring form pan... and between the spices, nuts and richness of the ingredients, the sugar free "taste" was almost non-existent. I had a bit of a time trying to figure out if the cake was cooking correctly as my oven seemed to take longer (and then browned the first layer of the cake) which worried me.... but after the second layer went on and was "set" by the increased heat.... and then cooled, everything compacted down into a dense and creamy cake... which is just what I was hoping for. I made this for my husband's b-day tonight... and it was a HUGE hit. I will definitely be making this again! Thank you for posting!!
This is so good that even I like it and I'm not the diabetic. I used the premade crusts since there is very little sugar in there anyway, and it worked great. I will be making this again and again for my guy.
