Low-Point Pumpkin Cake

Yum
I will eventually get back to some healthy low-point main courses or side dishes, but for now, having fun with these delicious autumn treats! This pumpkin cake is probably one of my favorites. That means I have to be careful because even though it's a wonderful low-point dessert, it's hard for me to just eat one piece. I vow to do better with that, the next time I bake this amazing pumpkin cake... which will be very soon!!!

- 1 2/3 cups Splenda granulated sugar substitute
