Recipe from Splenda

Top Review by Yaneya

I found this recipe on the Splenda sugar mix as well. Sooooooo good! Wanted to add it to may cookbook and here it is on the website already. I think this is the best carrot cake I have ever had. I do not like very sweet cakes, and this one is just right. I like that it has so many healthy ingredients. Sometimes I add cranberry for a different taste.
