Does anyone have a recipe? Have only found one on a messageboard on the Daily Mail website, and apart from that can only find ones with American measurements. Thanks.

Also, can you just use your usual recipe and substitute what the equivalent is of Splenda (it will tell you on the package)? And maybe substitute some unsweetened applesauce for some of the other stuff?
