Has anyone used Splenda in the WASC cake and what were the results? I am looking to do this next weekend as a way to lower the sugar content for a customer.
I did, and it did not turn out well...the cake was very dense for my taste...it was for a coworker who is a diabetic...I was so careful with the ingredients that went into the cake. I did a lot of research prior to baking the cake...needless to say, she ended up in the ER with extremely high blood sugar....huh?
I would do a test run first =) sorry that I'm not more helpful
If it is for a diabetic.. no matter if you use some splenda in the recipe.. it's still extremely high in sugar.
My dad is type 1. He is able to eat sweets and sugar, as long as he accounts for it with his pump. The issue w/ cake is that it's extremely hard to figure out the amount of carbs/sugar in each slice; this makes it hard to counteract the amount of sugar eaten with insulin.
If it's someone that just wants lower sugar.. tell 'em cake isn't something to be eating If you're going to eat cake.. eat it at full taste, not full of artificial sweeteners that reduce the taste and don't necessarily increase the healthiness.
