Chocolate Bundt Cake ~ Made with Splenda

Renée G.


I tweaked and morphed this from three other recipes I have in my arsenal of chocolate goodness. I sometimes will dust the cooled cake with powdered sugar, but that sort of defeats the purpose of using Splenda, so...usually I just leave it plain and to date...nobody has ever complained. You can serve with fresh, sliced strawberries and a small dollop of Cool Whip, or a scoop of sugar free ice cream, if desired. This is rich and moist enough to serve plain, however.
