2 Tbsp Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread
8 tsp Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
1 Tbsp Water

Dough was very thick and hard to spread. Ugly on the way in/out of the oven, once flipped over presentation was improved. Cake was pancake texture in the mouth, but taste was pleasant. Serving size small in my opinion, I served hot with 1/4 cup low fat ice cream!! 175 cal for dessert is great! - 3/31/12
Registered just to warn people. I have no idea how this recipe has good ratings. The batter was thick like pizza dough. I had to add extra liquid. After baking it was the consistency of a thick, pasty, biscuit custard. Just awful. Only salvaged by serving as a sub par cobbler with lots of ice cream. - 7/2/11
Sounds good but the title is misleading - "Brown Sugar Blend" IS still sugar. The marachino cherries have plenty of sugar too. Maybe it should be called "lower sugar" not "no sugar added". You can also substitute all purpose flour with whole wheat pastry flour to make it even more healthy! - 10/28/10
