Are you a sugar fiend like me? If so, you might want to decrease the sugar content of your baked goods. Here are a few things you can do:
1. Add natural sweetness by using equal amounts of pureed naturals such as ripe bananas, applesauce or pureed baby-food fruits.
2. Mix less. Higher amounts of sugar allow for a more tender product, so avoid over mixing when sugar is reduced.
3. I try halving the sugar called for in a recipe. Start there and maybe even decrease more next time.
