Cinnamon Roll Cake

CharlieAnn says:


What could I substitute for the splenda? Would it be possible to use stevia? Dietitian comment: It may[INVALID]but I would consider it experimental cooking the first time you try the stevia.

Cinnamon Roll Cake

GrannyKathy46 says:


This is an absolutely delicious cake but I have a question about the recipe. In making the cake part it says to use the Splenda baking mix, which I would assume means the 2 cups listed. However in making the glaze it says to combine the remaining 1 cup Splenda, etc. Is that a cup in addition to what is called for in the cake or is the amount in the list to be divided? In following the recipe I put the whole 2 cups in the cake part and then had to guess how much to put with the powdered sugar for the glaze. Dietitian comment: The 2 cups Splenda baking blend are divided between the cake and the glaze, so 1 cup in the cake and 1 cup in the glaze. I have adjusted the preparation notes to clarify. Thanks!
