I would imagine that pineapple/apple juices would ADD sugar, not decrease it. Perhaps water and pineapple extract should be used?


I made this recipe for my diabetic parents with a little twist. I wasn't comfortable with the fruit juice, so I omitted it and added an additonal 1/3 c of milk. I also added a small package of sugar free strawberry jello mix. The batter was thicker than what I am used to but it worked out fine. Maybe next time, I will mix 1/3 cup of water with jello and then add to batter. I baked it in a heart shaped pan for Valentine's day and topped it with the sugar free whipped cream recipe found on this site. They both enjoyed it very much. Thank you for the recipe!!


@Pinkbutterfly...I also made this recipe and followed your advice and added a package of sugar free jello as well, I did water the jello mix down with 1/3 cup of water and it worked wonderfully! In addition I used the sugar-free whipped cream frosting and added an additional package of pudding, which made the frosting stable enough to decorate with! Thank You for the Recipe!!!


Just FYI: Splenda lets you use less sugar but it is not sugar-free. Sugar is a generic term for different types of sugars:such as maltose, dextrose, fructose, glucose, sucrose, etc. All of these raise blood sugar levels, so are to be used sparingly in recipes for diabetics.--Not that this is called a diabetic recipe, I'm just sayin'.......


this came out great!! instead of the fruit juice, i substituted 1/3 cup of natural, unsweetened applesauce. the cake was very moist & and not too dense. my diabetic co-workers were thrilled to finally try some of my cupcakes :)


Awesome, I put 1/3 blend splenda (instead of 2/3 granulated splenda) and substitute 1/3 lemon low fat yogurt for apple juice. Very Moist...Jummy!
