    Hi Joey,
    Thanks for sharing the Organic Chocolate Spelt Cake recipe. I would love to try it, but I need clarification on one ingredient.

    You say “1/2 cup organic brown sugar or 1 teaspoon stevia with a teaspoon lemon juice”. This is confusing because the chart on my Stevia box says 1/2 cup stevia is 12 packets. Can you please clarify this, I want it to come out as good as it looks in your picture. Thanks again,

    ¬†Your box – or their website should have a conversion chart on “Xsugar = Xstevia”… Keep me posted!
