I'm looking for a recipe for diabetic pound cake. A delightful lady in my town owns a tiny bakery and asked me if I had such a recipe but search as I might I was unable to find one. The problem is that sugar is required to produce a nice brown crust and I can find no way around this. If anyone has a workaround I'd love to know about it.

Alph - have you tried just doing a global search on "diabetic pound cake"? Just a thought. I know some of the food site, i. e. Kraft, Pillsbury, etc., have sections for diabetics. You might try there. Hope this helps.
You can use Splenda instead of sugar.
