A nice widow man, who had been to a church potluck, gave my husband a huge piece of this cake while he was working in a convenience store. The whole family got to taste it and my husband passed on the rave reviews. It is so very moist and lucious. The gentleman then wrote the recipe down for us. When fixing for at home, I use sugar free applesauce; fruit packed in its own juice, sugar free pudding and sugar/fat free Cool Whip. I don't miss the sugar or extra calories. But this was not in the original directions. I've not yet ever tried a sugar-free cake mix.
