Diabetic seeking *good* sugar-free cheesecake recipe? (Splenda baking sub-question)

Mr. Taster | Jul 29, 2004 12:18 PM

Ahhh cheesecake. The stuff of dreams. What I would do for a good cheesecake is, well, not postable on a family board such as this one :-)

It would seem that cheesecake could potentially be the ultimate diabetic dessert, as the only significant source of carbs/sugars come from, well, the sugar-- yet I have yet to find a quality recipe.

(Note-- I have tried a couple of recipes from the internet, usually substituting Splenda for sugar, and the results have always been rather questionable-- the last one I made turned out really bitter, but I don't know if it is because I used a low-quality cream cheese or what.)

Does anyone here have any experience baking with Splenda, with specific reference to cheesecake?

Also, does anyone know of any quality sugar-free cheesecake recipes? Perhaps a fruity-flavored one which uses a combo of fruit juice and splenda to sweeten and at the same time mask the chemically flavor of the sweetner?

I would be most grateful for any replies!

Thanks in advance
