Splenda® Sugar Blend for Baking Tres Leche Cake

I have been looking for a low-fat and low sugar recipe for a dessert that was different as well as delicious, I found it. This was great.

A tasty disappointment!

by K. Katrina , Carlsbad, NM on Aug. 2008

I followed the recipe to the letter, but the cake turned out quite flat. I poured the milk combo on anyway, thinking it would soak it up and expand, but nothing happened! The cake floated in the milk mixture and hardly soaked up any liquid (even though I poked loads of holes in). I served it anyway with strawberries and blueberries on the side and used the milk like a sauce. It tasted really yummy, but it was nothing like the picture. I don't think I'd make it again.

Wonderful

I was making a cake for my mother's 90th birthday- I wanted it to be special- something that would help her remember her birthday. I wanted to start with the cake, I looked at this recipe and saw it was pretty healthy and had wonderful reviews. Many cakes I have baked don't taste the best, but when I made this cake for a 2 hour party, the cake was almost gone by the end of the party- It was the best cake ever! It was so yummy! I also made her some raisenet oatmeal bars from this site- after the party was over, they were all eaten up! Everyone should try both of these yummy recipes. After you taste the cake, there is no going back to old cake mixes from boxes! YUMMY!

Very Light and Creamy!

I first made this cake because I was looking for dessert recipes with low or no sugar. I am so glad that I found it because it has become one of my mother's favorite desserts. If you like something sweet and creamy with a light vanilla flavor, then you'll love this!

Made this cake for Easter. It was unusual to see it soak up all of the milk! Taste was very similar to strawberry shortcake - especially with fresh strawberries on the side! Very light vanilla taste.
