Silver Spoon Sugar with Stevia

Written by:

Ever heard that little voice in your head telling you to steer clear of naughty treats? It’s hard to obey when you hit that 3pm brick wall which shouts “EAT ME” at you. Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Our friends at Silver Spoon know exactly how you feel.

They’ve been working away on a couple of new products; caster sugar with stevia and demerara sugar with stevia. By using this, it means you use 1/3 less sugar in your recipes.

Wondering what Stevia is? It’s a sweetener extracted from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana.

Now, have you ever tried to bake with substitutions for sugar? Unless you have a specific recipe which has been written for the substitution, it can sometimes look and taste like you’ve baked with a blindfold on!

Our new sugars with stevia have been carefully developed so you don’t have this problem. All you need to do is use 1/3 less sugar in your recipe.

 

 

We put it to the test! We baked two of everything to compare. One with usual caster sugar, and one version using caster sugar with Stevia. I don’t think we’ve ever had such a massive queue outside the Baking Mad kitchen. The verdict for the Lemon Loaf Cake? 10 out of 10 for taste AND texture. It tastes exactly like sugar once baked yet you’re saving 1/3 of the sugar content (and get this; The sugar’s calories too!)

 

Why not try two other recipes we have put to the test. Shortbread,the texture is the same and they tasted wonderful. Have a go! We also tried baking a raspberry and white chocolate tray bake. This sponge cake was so moist and delicious, it was hard to believe we were eating a 1/3 less sugar. Want to try? Here are the recipes.
