Hey bullseye! Let me know if you try it! Don't you substitute splenda equally for sugar. Like if it calls for 1/2 Cup of Sugar, you use a 1/2 Cup of Splenda??????? I dunno, I thought I read that once?!?!?!?

With the regular loose splenda, yes... equal parts (but tends to be a little sweeter than regular sugar so if it calls for 1/2 cup, i might put just a little less); but there is a baking splenda that is part splenda, part sugar and the ratio 2 cups sugar = 1 cup of the baking splenda.

Either way, I'll definitely let you know!
