2 Tbsp. SPLENDA 
¾ C. oil 
1 teas. Vanilla

  1. The cake sounds delicious. However, I think it probably does have a lot of sucrose in it from the apple sauce. I think people sometimes forget how much natural sugar there is in fruit, and that a diabetic is as much affected by these natural sugars as by refined sugar from sugar cane or beets. For instance, raw apples with skin have about 2.07 grams of sucrose.

    1. I never thought about that. I do not think everyone thinks about that and thanks for bringing that up.
