About this recipe: Using granulated sugar substitute means you can enjoy a moist and rich chocolate cake, which is totally sugar free. It isn't overly sweet, so add more sweetener, if desired. For an icing, you could make a chocolate buttercream with sugar substitute, as well, though it's delicious if you layer it with whipped cream and berries.
