Health Tip: Bake With Less Sugar05/14/13
(HealthDay News) -- Cutting down on sugar in your delectable
desserts doesn't have to mean sacrificing taste or enjoyment.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions
for baking with less sugar:
- Cut back the sugar by a fourth or even a third in baked goods
such as cakes, cookies and breads.
- Instead of frosting a cake, top it with pureed fruit, slices of
fruit or a light dusting of powdered sugar.
- Use spices and extracts to naturally sweeten desserts. Examples
include vanilla, peppermint, cinnamon, allspice or nutmeg.
- Don't be afraid to experiment.
