Is it true splenda works just as well in cake as cane sugar? Are the measurements the same?

Does it taste good? I am making another chocolate cake today and was thinking about trying it.

Thank you in advance

Use a made for Splenda recipe or box mix. The best ones I've had have also contained some sugar.

I think I will stick to sugar! Thanks for clearing that up for me.

I also found that a splenda cake doesn't rise as well. Almost to the "not at all" point. icon_eek.gif

really, I hate the stuff. It's real easy for me to turn down an order that wants splenda used in it.

Sometimes I wish I could wrap my arms around you guys.

You are all such a wealth of information. It's nice to pull from the knowledge and experience of such a nice group of people.

Thank you.

I would like to add that I recently found out that I am allergic to Splenda. I know it is not a common allergy, I think it was from over exposure. I just wish products could clearly be labeled as made with splenda... sorry to take this off topic...
