Recipe Notes

The calories are estimated. Instead of using all white granulated sugar, I used half granulated and half Truvia to cut the calories.

Also, the baking time may vary, depending on your type of oven. I baked in a gas oven for 30 minutes. However, the cakes should have been taken out of the oven after 25 minutes because one of the cakes was almost burnt along the edge.
