Planning to make this for Christmas this year as it includes flavors that truly capture the season. Though the recipe is from a diabetic cookbook, it can be made with or without sugar. The use of yogurt and a parsimonious amount of butter keeps this cake moist without being too heavy. According to the source, prepared with the blend the cake has 165 calories and 26g carbs. With sugar, its 187 calories and 34g carbs. (These nutritionals are with water not orange juice.) Added note: as with most lower fat baked items, take good care not to over bake as the results quickly suffer. Better to go a minute or so less than you think the cake needs to be done.
