I cannot fully give this a five because I needed to do some alterations to make this a low sugar white cake. I substituted splenda sugar in place of regular sugar. I added 3/4 cup non fat dry milk powder and 1/12 teaspoons of baking soda. compared to 2 other recipes I found on the internet this came out the best. If anyone else has a good sugar free recipe that they would like to share I would appreciate it. This particular cake had to be white. So it was more difficult to find a recipe that worked.
