Good day...

I was recently interviewed for an article regarding a law suit between the marketers of Equal and Splenda. It certainly is a relief to see that these chemical company behemoths are fighting each other and leaving all natural companies like Steviva alone. I would like to point out the irony of the suit. You see Equal contains Aspartame which some research indicates can cause diseases ranging from Alzheimer's to Cancer. And Splenda... which states that their product is simply a derivative of sugar should probably read something like, "made from dextrose, maltodextrin and 4-chloro-4-deoxy-alpha, D-Galactopyranosyl-1, 6-dichloro-1, 6-dideoxy-beta, D-fructofuranoside."

Besides being un-natural and chemically based, what both of these chemical sweeteners share is a primary ingredient of Maltodextrin which has been shown to spike insulin levels and will not help you if you are on a low carb diet or if you suffer from hypoglycemia or diabetes.

Better living through chemistry is not always better for thought.

The Holidays are upon us and we have some great recipes and a new price for All Natural Steviva Brand Stevia Blend ONLY $14.95! That's $2.00 (nearly 15%) off our regular low price! So... get cooking for the holidays!

Thank all of you for your patronage.

I'll see you all on Monday but, until then have an excellent weekend.

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix all cake ingredients together by hand, this comes out very thick & sticky.

In a extra large cake pan (if you don't have a large pan use 2 or 3 smaller pans), place parchment paper and spray with Pam, put mixture into pan and spread out so it is no more than 1/3" thick (if it is too think it doesn't taste right) it will puff up to over ½ thick.

Bake at 350¼ for 25-40 minutes (depending on altitude) until knife comes out clean.

Cut into 1" square pieces (this is very rich), makes about 25-30 servings.

Frost with Cream cheese frosting.

Frosting: Cream all frosting ingredients together, add more Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or Steviva Brand Stevia Powder to your taste, and spread on of warm cake and allow to cool.
