With this recipe, your family will never miss the sugar filled cakes you find out of a box. Sure making them from scratch takes a little more time, but when you taste the result you will find it is well worth the effort! This cake will be gone fast, but you don't have to worry about loading the kids up on sugar even if they want a second piece.
