Not all artificial sweeteners are heat stable - they can't all be used in baked goods.
Most artificial sweeteners are more concentrated than sugar. The individual packets are usually the sweetening equivalent of 1tsp of sugar. I know that there are kinds of Splenda that are made to measure like sugar (including the ones that are blended with sugar), but they do that by adding some stuff to bulk it up. Individual packets of Splenda or any other sweetener do NOT measure like sugar.
If a recipe is calling for 1 cup of artificial sweetener, it's probably calling for 1 cup of the kind of Splenda that is made to measure like sugar.
Here's the Sweet'n'low page on baking: www.sweetnlow.com/faqs/cooking.html
If you used one cup of Sweet'n'low, you probably have way too much sweetener. But if the recipe didn't specify what, then that's the recipe's fault!
