Yes..1 cup is Equivalent to 1 teaspoon of Stevia powdered extract
1 tablespoon is equal to 1/4 teaspoon of Stevia powdered extract
Stevia is 250-300 times sweeter than ordinary granulated sugar and does not significantly raise blood glucose, making it suitable for diabetics.
Do the recipe exact and it should turn out well...add the cool whip or even try sliced fresh berries on top...you can even puree some to make it look drizzled...Berries have the least impact on blood sugar......no bananas or pineapple as they could spike blood sugar

Thank you! I will try to recipe this week. Have you used it? If you have, were the results good?
If I am reading the conversion chart correctly - 1 cup of sugar can be replaced with 1 teaspoon of Stevia?
The stevia powder referred to in this chart is the pure form, or the liquid made from the pure powder.
Sugar amount Equivalent Stevia powdered extract Equivalent Stevia liquid concentrate 1 cup 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon 1 tablespoon 1/4 teaspoon 6 to 9 drops 1 teaspoon A pinch to 1/16 teaspoon 2 to 4 drops
Use Stevia Besides tasting good, stevia has no calories, a zero glycemic index (meaning it has no carbs), no artificial ingredients, and no effect on blood sugar. It's a way to satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your blood sugar levels sweet with a mild aftertaste that can be masked by blending with other sweet ingredients
The reason he doesn't want artificial sweeteners is that they spike blood sugar....Sugar Alcohols (which are often used in products labeled sugar free) will raise blood sugar... and also Aspartame contains Aspartic Acid, Phenylalanine and Methanol ...Methanol AKA Wood Alcohol...these are all poisons....
here is a recipe using stevia

Does he want a cake without any kind of sweetener, artificial or real? That is, does he want a cake with no sugar, no molasses, no honey, no brown rice syrup, no agave nectar, nothing? Is he diabetic?
This thread on chowhound might be helpful:
And this page has some naturally sugar-free desserts, including cake:

I am looking for a sugar free recipe for cake. I have been asked to find one by my pastor. He doesn't want splenda or other artificial sweeteners.
Is this even possible? I've looked at the recipes here at SP and they all have some sort of sweetener. Does anyone have any suggestions?
