Good flavor, needed some tweaking.I made this cake for my father-in-law, who is diabetic. He said it tasted great, but it was a little dry. I decided to make it again, with some changes to the recipe.
I substituted 2/3 cup light mayonnaise for the eggs, mixed the Truvia with the butter first, then added in the mayo and other liquid ingredients, and stirred by hand just enough to eliminate any lumps. Next I added the dry ingredients, first mixing by hand to minimize splattering, then using electric beaters just enough to blend in the dry ingredients. It took a few extra minutes to bake. My father-in-law said it came out absolutely delicious and nicely moist with the alterations.
I made it a third time, using the mayo, and added 1/4 cup baking cocoa to make the cake lightly chocolate, and that variation was a hit as well.

Husbands co-worker loved it!!My husband has a co-worker that has to watch his sugar intake (borderline diabetic) & he misses out sometimes when my husband takes desserts to share. I made this cake special for this one person and he loves it. The only thing I differently was add 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder to make it a chocolate cake as a previous person stated. I'll definitely make this again for my husbands co-worker & look forward to finding other desserts that he can enjoy too!!

trying you out!Awful, truly awful! Not like cake at all. Threw it in the bin. What a waste of good ingredients, butter, eggs, flour. Don't bother making it - make a proper cake and just have a small amount - at least you'll know it will taste good!
