Recipes that call for sugar? Substitute with Maple Syrup or Maple Sugar!
General Cooking: Use only three-fourths the amount of organic maple syrup or maple sugar is to white sugar. For example, if a recipe says to use 1/4 cup (4 Tablespoons) of sugar, use 3 Tablespoons of organic maple sugar or syrup instead.
Baking: For every cup of sugar, substitute 3/4 cups organic maple syrup or maple sugar. If using maple syrup reduce the dominant liquid in the recipe (for example, water or milk) by 2 to 4 Tablespoons.
You may also need to add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to reduce maple syrup’s slight acidity; this will not be necessary for recipes with buttermilk, sour milk, or sour cream. (Grade B is the preferred syrup for cooking.)
