1 1/2 cups
brown sugar twin
This cake came out exceptionally well and tastes great! I layered the bottom of my springform pan with apples in concentric circles. When removed from the pan, the top of the cake looked beautiful with the fresh baked apples. I sprinked some cinnamon on top and it's perfect for guests. No one can believe it is without oil, butter or sugar!
This recipe called for 3/4 cup of brown sugar twin....way too much. I followed the recipe as stated and my cake turned out sooooo sweet! Other than the sweetness-the cake was okay.
I made this for my Dad (he's diabetic). The whole family ended up eating it! You'd never be able to tell there was no sugar in it. It was moist and delicious.
My husband and brother-in-law are diabetic so I tried this on them for Sunday dinner dessert. Even the kids liked this. The only changes I made were 1/2 cup Spenda brown sugar instead of the 'twin' and I added 1/2 walnuts. They loved it. Easy and quick to make.
I adjusted this recipe to make a chocolate sugarless cake, and it turned out GREAT! Just omit the spices and raisins, add 4 tbsp cocoa, and I used 1 c white sugar substitute since I can't find brown sugar substitute in my town. Anyway, it is DELICIOUS and doesn't taste sugarless at all! I'm going to top it with no-sugar-added cherry pie filling and enjoy sharing :)
I loved it. I have made it a couple of times now now. I used whole wheat flour with wheat bran instead of white flour. I added coconut and lots of diced apple chunks. I don't like it too sweet or use artifical sweeteners, so I replaced the twin substitute by two large tablespoons fructose. Very yummy! I love it for breakfast.
Moist and great with whipped topping, I cook a lot for diabetics and this was a big hit with them.
I found this cake to be good enough to add to our family favorites. It's moist, holds up well, and is easy to "play" with. I've used orange-essence prunes in lieu of raisins, added a teaspoon of ground ginger to spice it up a little, and pureed some mixed, frozen (thawed) berries as a tart touch with the lovely sweetness of the original cake. Very versatile.
