“From the magazine, "Taste of Home, Recipe Makeovers" Vol. 4, 2006. One of my most favorite cakes, but healthier for us. When doing a search, I could not find one here. Note: I like to spread the frosting on the cake while it is still a little warm. You should know that the test kitchen used Land O'Lakes light stick butter and Splenda blend.”
