I love it -- it's the best-tasting stevia-erythritol blend out there, but it has some quirks. Sometimes it dissolves well, sometimes it doesn't and sometimes it precipitates out afterward. I made two...

You can use a LC Pound cake, but it is quite rich and buttery -- maybe too much for some tastes.
