Tips for Swapping Purecane Into Your Baking Recipes

You will love the taste of Purecane Baking Sweetener and how similar it browns to sugar. You can do a 1-1 swap of sugar for Purecane Baking Sweetener in your recipes, but here are a few additional tips to get you started:
  • Use room temperature butter. Purecane will take a little longer than sugar to blend with butter (totally worth the wait!) so start with room temperature butter for the best results.
  • Boost the moisture. Consider increasing your eggs or the amount of butter you use to balance the moisture.
  • Balance sweetness with salt. If you are swapping 1 cup or more of sugar with Purecane™ Baking Sweetener, you may want to add 1/8 teaspoon of salt for a better balanced sweetness.
