Baking with Sugar Substitutes
Our Test Kitchen tried several recipes, including our favorite white cake recipe, with sugar, sugar substitutes, and blends. Here's what we found.
Sugar Calories per teaspoon: 16
Test Kitchen Notes: The function of sugar in a recipe varies greatly. Sugar may act solely as a sweetener, as in lemonade, or it may provide volume, tenderness, browning, crispness, moisture, structure, and sweetness, as in a cake or cookies.
Take a Look at the White Cake: Notice the light crumb texture (structure), even browning (caramelizing), smooth top, and high volume. The flavor was pleasantly sweet.
